"Pigeon Forge Titanic Attraction"
January, 2019 NEW
Historically accurate and smartly interactive. Enjoyed connecting on a personal level as passenger aboard the cruise liner. Loved the layout as it was in chronological order from an idea on paper to it's final resting place. I recommend this for the whole family.

"Terrific Trip into History"
January, 2019 NEW
I have always craved more history on the Titanic and was happy to get it during our tour. Ladies and gentlemen, dressed in period attire, greet visitors at the entrance, give you your identity, and offer options to stop and chat and learn more than is on your audio device. Travel through the museum with audio and written history at your leisure.

Learn how the Titanic and her sister ships were built and by whom, the state of the art construction process and innovations, the massiveness of the anchors, the mechanics of the giant coal driven boilers, and the elegance and detail in the areas of the ship for the rich and famous. Learn the layout of the ship and take a walk up the grand staircase before the tour culminates with that fateful night when the dream ended.

Imagine traveling in grand luxury or in a third class family room. Imagine being one of the ship's staff members who made it all work. Imagine the horror that night when the iceberg ravaged the unsinkable ship. Then, touch the iceberg and see how long you can keep your hand in the water. Imagine as the massive and magnificent Titanic began sliding into the frigid waters of the Atlantic. Finally, see if you survived!

You can almost hear the laughter, excitement, and then the dismay and resignation as those left on the ship entered the last minutes of their lives.

Go. Learn. Enjoy and leave with a bit of awe.

Tip: Children have their own story to listen to as they journey through the ship. Be prepared for a lot of walking and know photos or recordings are NOT allowed inside the ship.

Our family enjoyed everything about this place. From the outside to all the inside displays it was fascinating! It was exciting and depressing at the same time to touch the "iceberg" and stick my arm in the "ocean water"

"Titanic - A Not to be missed experience."
January, 2019 NEW
I went to the titanic with a group of seniors the end of November and thoroughly enjoyed the way the titanic was presented. My family and I ( ages 10 to 75 ) went on New Year’s Day as I had had such a previous great experience. The history is so well done and laid out so it can be enjoyed no matter what age. We so enjoyed the man in the music room who played his violin.

Tip: Very educational and presented in a great way. The audio tours is a great way to experience the titanic.

"The Real Titanic and It's Passengers"
January, 2019 NEW
Take the tour of the Titanic and go back in time to see what it was really like on it's maiden voyage.
This is not the movie and all it's special affects.
You will be overwhelmed with the information about the ship, it's crew, and the passengers.
This was a great experience for my wife and myself.
It brings the true tragedy to heart by showing the families that were on board during the disaster.

"So interesting!"
January, 2019 NEW
If you have any interest at all in history or the Titanic, this museum is worth the time and price. When you arrive, you are given a character sheet which allows you to have a "personal" connection to follow throughout the experience. Did your character survive? You find out at the end! There is even a Titanic made of Legos at the end!

Tip: If it's tourist season, go early in the day, and pictures are only allowed in one location of the museum.

I love Titanic and especially loved the movie, therefore when I found out there was museum in Pigeon Forge I knew I had to visit! I wasn’t sure what to expect but it exceeded my expectations. Without giving away too much, you are given a boarding pass with the name of an actual passenger and you find out at the end if you survived. It’s a self guided tour that immerses you in the experience. The best part of the tour was the replica of the grand staircase. I literally got goosebumps when we came upon it. Very very cool. A must see! My kids are 8 and 5 and there is a separate self guided tour just for the kiddos. They were entertained the entire time.

Frequently Asked Questions about Titanic Museum Attraction

Is there a restaurant or cafe at the Titanic Museum Attraction?
No, there isn’t but there are many restaurants in the surrounding Parkway area.

Are cameras/video allowed at the Titanic Museum?
No. Cameras and/or video cameras are not allowed at the museum.

Is the Titanic Pigeon Forge Museum Attraction accessible by wheelchair?

Yes. The Titanic Museum Attraction is fully accessible to the disabled and is wheelchair friendly. We also have wheelchairs available.

Were any of the Titanic artifacts on display taken from the wreck site?
None of the artifacts you see at Titanic Pigeon Forge were taken from the wreck site. The many priceless Titanic artifacts and relics that are on display were either carried off the ship by Titanic passengers and crew or were recovered from the sea during the rescue effort. Many of these pieces are on display for the first time.

How big is the Titanic Museum Attraction?
Titanic Pigeon Forge is a 30,000 square-foot, ship-shaped structure situated on 5.69 acres that overlook the Gateway to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. The forward half of the ship is re-created and will be half-the-size of the original Titanic. It holds 20 galleries with hundred of artifacts on two decks. The primary objective in creating Titanic Pigeon Forge was to build a permanent monument to the 2,208 men, women and children who sailed on her.

I hear the museum attraction has re-created Titanic’s Grand Staircase and that visitors can actually climb the stairs. Is that true?
Yes. The section of the First Class staircase between A-Deck and B-Deck has been re-created using original plans from Harland and Wolff, the Titanic builders. It is centered under a wrought iron and glass dome that duplicates what was installed on Titanic. Additionally, there is an accurate re-creation of both a First Class suite and Third Class cabin.

Are there interactive opportunities for my kids to enjoy?
Yes, the interactive areas of Titanic Pigeon Forge provide many hands-on experiences that are designed to give children and adults alike a sense of what it might have been like to actually be on board the Titanic. Families will be able to learn how to send a wireless SOS signal and see how difficult communication was in 1912; they’ll feel what it was like to stand in the icy night air while touching a soaring wall of ice that simulates the iceberg that sliced through the ship. Guests will be able to experience water chilled to 28 degrees which delivers a stark reminder of what two-thirds of the Titanic’s passengers and crew had to endure.

How long does the tour take?
The Titanic Pigeon Forge Museum Attraction is a self-guided tour. Because there is so much to see and do in the museum the average length of time a guest will spend is two hours.

I’ve seen one of those Titanic traveling exhibits and wondered why I should care about seeing this one?
Titanic Pigeon Forge and Titanic Branson are unlike anything you’ve seen before. They’re permanent, Titanic-size museum attractions that are unequaled in the world. From the moment you board the ship, you’ll begin to see, experience, and feel the difference. Costumed crew members will introduce you to some of the 2,208 passengers and crew that were on board the ship and you’ll have an opportunity to pay your respect to all them before you leave.
