Fantastic. I was a bit skeptical as I've seen the meager traveling exhibit that came through town, but this was nothing like it. At first the small pieces of the titanic seem to be a let down, then you walk through the 3rd class hall, and see the state room, hear the engine sounds, and read the details, and then it gets even better. So many artifacts from passengers, the open-air deck set up with sounds, and stars at night, then the staircase, and first class cabin. Then the huge 'iceburg' set up so you can touch and know that the water was colder than that. But the final 2 items left me speechless. The first one was The 'Big Piece.' The largest section of the Titanic brought to the surface. About 26 by 12 feet. It's incredible to be able to stand beside it and see the rivets and broken portholes. To see the video and watch them raise it, and also see where it came from. Incredible for someone like me who has been fascinated with the legend for decades. Then the last thing is the list of all the passengers by class and crew. Those that made it and those that didn't. It's heartbreaking to see the class differentiation with so many survivors in first class, and so many souls lost in third class and the crew.
Notes: Don't get the extra audio-guide. It talks at the same places where they have plaques to read - too confusing. Look for coupons in the Vegas tour books (free books in hotels and cabs). The staircase is a great photo op, but you aren't allowed to take photos in the exhitbit - they have a professional taking your pictures, which means you have to buy it if you want one. My advice is not to take kids - they will most likely be bored.
