His inspiring story has generated wide international media coverage & his Titanic LEGO Ship will make a USA debut at our Titanic Museum.

Wonderful, interesting and historical. I found this experience unique from the entrance gate. Being assigned the name of an actual passenger and then finding out more biographical information about this passenger was informative. Then, learning that passenger's fate was interesting.

"Very Interesting Museum!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed January 21, 2018 NEW
I don't usually enjoy museums as much as others because I struggle with history and remembering historical facts. This museum made the experience interesting. You receive a card with a passenger and information about that passenger that you become during this journey. The staff is decked out in clothing from this time period. You receive a handset to listen to different explanations as you make your way through the museum. You simply punch in the number on the blue circles beside the exhibits. I realized this when I got to the third exhibit. I had been entering the numbers on the red circles which was the younger kids version so I started over. There is a lot to read also. The only complaint I had was I missed some of the numbers. I either didn't see them or they weren't displayed so I missed some of the commentaries. My favorite parts of the museum were the staircase and the iceberg room. There is a giant iceberg you can feel as well as water that is the temperature of the water where the Titanic sank. They take your picture and I would have purchased them but they had everything decorated in Christmas theme which was beautiful but the Titanic's voyage was in April and it wouldn't have been decorated with Christmas items. The last room before the gift shop - because you know you have to exit through the gift shop - has the name of the passengers and survival status. This is where you see if the passenger you are supposed to be survives. We will have to make a return visit!

The museum had just reopened from a deep cleaning. It was very interesting and held our young boys attention. It was well worth the time to go back in time.

I have been fascinated with the Titanic as far back as I can remember. I have been to a museum in Atlanta which was interesting but it couldn't hold a candle to this one. It was awesome.

"Not the average area museum"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed January 15, 2018 NEW
Please don’t think that this is your average area museum. This museum has several original artifacts from the titanic. There are a lot of displays, exhibits and interactive exhibits that you can enjoy. I think a nice touch for this museum would be for employees to be able to answer different questions about some of the exhibits. You are shown many different passengers that were on the ship. It gives you a little bit about their backstory and some of them, ultimately their fate. This museum was much better than I had expected I would definitely recommend it to all ages. There is nothing hokey or corny about this museum. Very informative so please allow yourself some time. This will be fun for all ages

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.

What are the requirements for the Family Pass?

The Family Pass includes 2 adults and up to 4 children (18 years and under living at home). Minimum 4 tickets per family pass.
