Titanic exhibit coming to Lexington

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Artifacts from the Titanic will be exhibited later this year at the Lexington Center Museum & Gallery.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports remnants from the worst maritime disaster will be displayed at the facility from Oct. 5- Jan. 26. Lexington Center CEO and president Bill Owen says people are fascinated with the story of the 1,500 people who died when the massive ship sank in the Atlantic Ocean a century ago.

Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition has typically been shown at venues in bigger cities, and Owen said it was an accomplishment for the relatively new museum to secure it.

He said officials decided to announce it early enough that school could plan to bring groups of students.
