Myth Busters: Do you know the real TITANIC Museum Attraction?
Myth: The Titanic Museum Attraction in Pigeon Forge is probably just another boring museum.
Fact: Absolutely not. Endorsed by the world-famous Titanic Historical Society, Titanic Museum Attraction is an internationally recognized living museum that holds the largest display of Titanic artifacts anywhere.
Myth: To get in, you must stand in long lines for hours.
Fact: It’s true we’re busy, especially on weekends and holidays; however, advance tickets make it easy to reserve a guaranteed hourly entrance time.
Myth: Some Titanic “artifacts” on display just have to be replicas.
Fact: The more than 400 genuine Titanic artifacts our galleries display are valued above $4 million and hold documented evidence of provenance. “Visitors get a boarding pass in the name of an actual passenger, whose fate they learn at the end of the visit...” — The New York Times, March 14, 2012
Myth: Kids won't enjoy the Titanic Museum Attraction.
Fact: Children five years and older are fascinated and really get it. They describe their museum experiences with words like “awesome,” “fun,” and “really cool.” The museum attraction is a living classroom filled with hands-on opportunities that motivate, educate and inspire. Every child receives a special boarding pass profiling a youngster who actually sailed on Titanic—a passenger who children can relate to. We even created a special audio tour just for kids that brings the Titanic story to life, and our onboard Scavenger Hunt adds to the excitement. Voted one of five museum exhibits sure to “delight kids and parents” by The Dallas Morning News.
Amenities: Handicap accessible, elevator, free parking, bus parking, gift shop. We also offer rentals for special occasions like birthdays, weddings and vow renewal services.

Titanic Museum Attraction Frequently Asked Questions

No. Cameras and/or video cameras are not allowed at the museum.
Is the Titanic Pigeon Forge Museum Attraction accessible by wheelchair?

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 will be 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 Museum Attraction Review
The Titanic Museum Pigeon Forge
is a unique museum that is filled with interesting artifacts, exhibits and a wealth of information regarding the Titanic. The outside of the museum is grandiose in its design, as it is a huge half-scale reproduction of the original Titanic. When I visited the attraction, I was handed a boarding pass, as all “passengers” are, and quickly started my tour of the more than 300 artifacts that are on display.
The authenticity of the museum impressed me from the start, as did its attention to detail and design. There is a treasure trove of artifacts, including a deck chair, Mrs. John Jacob Astor’s actual life jacket, official Titanic dinnerware and a crew member’s pen knife, among numerous other interesting pieces. Plus, the Titanic Museum features exact replicas of the opulent Grand Staircase, as well as third-class, second-class and first-class cabins. The Father Browne Gallery showcases some of the only Titanic photographs taken during the Titanic's passage from Southampton to Ireland, and is a true sight to see.
The Titanic Museum
also strives to create interactive exhibits. There is a trough of 28-degree water in which you can immerse your hand (or maybe just a finger, it’s really cold!) to experience the severity of the water that night; you can stand on a ship’s stern and experience the different precise angles of the ship as it gradually descended into the water; you can also simulate shoveling coal, learn to tie rope knots and try and send an SOS signal. On top of that, there is a lifeboat in which voices tell survivors stories and there is a special section called “Tots Titanic” featuring interactive exhibits for guests eight and under.
There are a variety of things to explore at the Titanic Museum. I spent almost two hours inside the attraction during my Pigeon Forge visit and certainly could’ve spent more time. Be sure to make time for a tour during your next Pigeon Forge vacation
