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.

"Totally worth it"
October, 2018 NEW
We took the kids (7 and 10) and we all loved it. There’s so many cool photos and artifacts that the adults could appreciate, mixed in with hands on activities that kept the kids entertained. You each get a handheld speaker and the kids liked finding and punching in the codes for the kid friendly recordings. They also loved climbing the angled decks, shoveling coal, watching water run down the stairs, touching the iceberg and feeling the icy cold water, and finding out if the kids whose tickets they were issued survived at the end of the tour. The adults loved father Brown’s photographs and all the personal stories. They did a great job taking the event of the titanic and bringing it home on a personal level. We spent around 2.5 hours in the museum and felt the cost of admission was well spent. My only complaint is that we would have loved to have been able to take pictures to share but it wasn’t permitted.

"A Titanic Good Time"
October, 2018 NEW
I have been fascinated with stories about the Titanic for many many years. My husband and I decided on a whim to get tickets as we were passing through Pigeon Forge. You never know when you get tickets to an attraction like this. Will it be as great as you’ve heard? Will it be interesting? Will it meet up to expectations? Is it worth the price? Well let me tell you yes to all of the above!!! From the moment we walked in I was drawn in! The care and quality of the exhibits was wonderful! The full scale of the grand staircase was enchanting. Seeing the artifacts and the exhibits draws you in to that world, the pride felt by the designers and builders of the ship itself. Excitement for those traveling on this massive ship, to only be face with the tragedy of their fate. Titanic Museum is a must see!

Tip: Be prepared to spend at least a couple hours going through this museum. No photography is allowed, which was the only downside for me because I love taking pictures on vacation.

"Wonderful Experience"
October, 2018 NEW
From the parking lot to the end, it couldn't have been better. The workers in period costumes, the audible tour headphones, the authenticity of all the displays took you back and helped to understand just what went on. Walking through the piece of ice burg replica and touching the cold water was a reality waker of what they want through after the wreck. The room honoring those who perished as well as those who lived...eye-opening. Well worth your time and effort.

The museum was amazing. It was eerie to see and feel what the people on the Titanic experienced. The darkness on the deck and feeling the cold 28 degree water brought the experience to life. Also, the lego Titanic was great!

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.
