Titanic exhibit in KC exceeds goal

Tuesday, September 18, 2012

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A Titanic exhibit that coincided with the 100th anniversary of the ill-fated voyage drew nearly 123,000 people to Kansas City's Union Station.

The Kansas City Star reported that it wasn't immediately known how much the exhibit netted. But the station's chief financial officer, Jerry Baber, said the break-even point was about 75,000 tickets.

A 2001 version of the Titanic exhibit attracted about 280,000 people. Officials did not expect to match that with an encore show. They were hoping for 100,000 or more visitors.

In October, Union Station will open its next traveling exhibit, "The Science of Rock 'n' Roll."
