SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The "Titanic" exhibit has been on display in Salt Lake City about 155 days longer than the ship was in operation.
Organizers say "Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition" at a downtown mall has attracted some 100,000 visitors since opening Memorial Day. It's closing January eighth.
The Titanic departed Southampton in southern England at noon, April tenth, 1912, on its maiden voyage. It was due to arrive in New York City on April 15th.
But The Titanic struck an iceberg at late Sunday, April 14th, and sank two hours, 40 minutes later, during the early morning of April 15th. About 15-hundred passengers and crew died.
Titanic's wreck site is located 963 miles northeast of New York, according to the exhibit's Web site.
