NEW 2018 Exhibit - THE WORLD’S LARGEST TITANIC SHIP BUILT WITH LEGO® BRICKS!
Only one place can hold the WORLD'S LARGEST TITANIC LEGO SHIP - the World's Largest Museum Attraction in Pigeon Forge! The 25ft x 4 ft x 5ft LEGO Titanic was built by a 10-year-old Icelandic boy with autism who had a Titanic-size dream. It was a daunting, 11-month undertaking, but he overcame the challenges to create a LEGO ship of Titanic proportions. His inspiring story has generated wide international media coverage & his Titanic LEGO Ship will make a USA debut at our Titanic Museum.

Amenities: Handicap accessible, elevator, free parking, bus parking, gift shop. We also offer rentals for special occasions like birthdays, weddings and vow renewal services.

"Visit to the Titanic Museum"
August, 2018 NEW
Wow. The Titanic Museum was a real stand out in our Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg vacation! The whole experience was well-crafted, and suitable for our entire family, including our super active 10-year old. In addition to being highly informative, it was intensely moving. Some of the recorded segments (accessible through the handheld players) were the voices of actual Titanic survivors, from late in their lives.

Despite what you might think about Pigeon Forge, in general, this was the real deal! Just driving up to the museum (a massive replica of the Titanic) was impressive.

Tip: You can just show up, but it's a good idea to make reservations for a specific day and time, if you can. Also, allocate a minimum of 2.5 to 3 hours. We took our tour at 10 am, and followed it was a late lunch, and it was perfect.

What a great museum to visit! Perfect for all ages! They have children’s audio stories and adult audio stories as you tour the museum. They were super organized that you didn’t feel crowded walking through each area of the museum. We would definitely return with friends in the future!

"Loved seeing the Titanic Museum"
August, 2018 NEW
We took a last minute trip Pigeon Forge a few minutes ago. We decided to visit the Titanic Museum because our 6 yr old has been very interested in the Titanic. There was alot of reading and it was neat to see all the artifacts in the Museum. We really enjoyed hearing the stories from the older gentleman that was sitting in the captain's deck area. I cant remember his name. We also thought the feel of the ice burg and the water was neat to experience. I also liked the audio recordings that allowed me to learn new things about the Titanic while keeping an eye out on my 6 yr old as well as kept him occupied listening to the recordings.

Tip: There is a good bit of walking required so if you have little ones or are older and have trouble walking I would suggest taking something to assist with your needs.

"An "unsinkable" time."
August, 2018 NEW
This museum was a wonderful experience. In spite of the fact that so many lives were lost in the sinking of the unsinkable Titanic, you could get a feeling of being aboard a great ship and supposedly having a great voyage. It's an educational trip for everyone.

The experience was absolutely wonderful! From start to finish. Absolutely beautiful artifacts and so much information. I wish they would have gave us more of the “boarding passes” that tell you about a person that was on the titanic. My daughter came home and when we went for orientation at her school she checked out a book about it and read 5 chapters in one night! I would love just more information to read and learn about this massive ship and the people and families aboard. I HIGHLY recommend this!

I’m going to be honest and say that me being a guy I was NOT looking forward to going to this. However, my wife talked me into and I’m glad I did. This was very fun. It was neat to see how the titanic was set up and learn about the unique characters on the ship when it sank. Btw the largest LEGO titanic is here and it was great! I would recommend going here whenever you are in the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area.

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.
