A phenomenal look into the personal experiences aboard the Titanic. The interactive exhibits help guests understand what transpired that fateful night. Don’t rush through the museum — every part of the self-guided tour is worth your time. Finding out the fate of your assigned passenger is an experience beyond words.

Description

from Titanic Museum Attraction
We've built a ship-shaped permanent, interactive Titanic Museum Attraction in Pigeon Forge, Tn. Everyone knows the name Titanic! Everyone knows that Titanic hit an iceberg! Everyone knows Titanic was lost! But there is so much more to her story.

Limited Engagement: Titanic Movie Costumes on Display
June 17 – Labor Day

In 2017, Titanic Museum will honor the 20th anniversary of Academy Award-winning creator/director James Cameron's monumental movie - Titanic! As viewers—the joy, fear and loss they experienced—we experienced. We are honored to display costumes from this motion picture from June 17 – Labor Day.

Plus, the owner of this museum, John Joslyn, co-led the second expedition to the Titanic wreck site. And, produced the first television show with the first Titanic images from the bottom of the ocean. See his images on display.

Life Jacket on Display
There are 10 known Titanic life jackets. The life jacket now on display in Pigeon Forge will be on exhibit through 2017. Titanic fact: There were plenty of life jackets for every Titanic passenger and crew member. Unfortunately, the Captain did not hold a life boat drill, which would have included how to wear the life jackets.

Discover the stories of the passengers and crew who sailed Titanic, as our crew and interactive galleries bring them to life. We are more than just a museum; we are a Permanent, Interactive Attraction for all ages.
• Walk the Grand Staircase
• Steer the ship
• Learn to send an SOS signal
• Touch an iceberg
• KID FRIENDLY
• 2 Hour walk-through experience

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.

"Boring. Like a Really Bad 5th Grade Field Trip"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed November 19, 2017 NEW
I have always wanted to see this because of all the high rated reviews. But I have no idea who actually thinks this place is fun or interesting, and I like history! This is so difficult to stay awake through! At the beginning you are given a card with the name and short bio of a person who was on the Titanic- at the end you find out if they survived or not. You are also given a remote type radio that narrates at each of the exhibits as you walk through the museum. But most of the exhibits require a TON of reading which is made difficult by the tiny font, darkness and crowds of people. For the love God, please do NOT bring children to this- it's just not fair to them. They run around trying to entertain themselves because they are bored out of their heads. One kid in front of me was shoving a hanging glass enclosure back and forth that contained a priceless life vest (1 of 9 in the world). The museum has tried to make it interesting for kids, so props to them but it's just not suitable for most kids. I did really enjoy seeing all the real artifacts from the Titanic and the photos. I wish there had been better auto content or more real life tour guides. The guide at the Grand Staircase was pretty good. Overall, it was a bit of a disappointment.

"Practically Self Guided"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed November 19, 2017 NEW
My family and I were really looking forward to this attraction. We weren't sure what exactly to expect but for some reason we felt let down. They had quite a few people on staff but the museum was practically self guided. They had given us a remote control-like device to follow along through each exhibit. We found many problems with this. You will have to read a lot to follow along as the audio doesn't cover everything (it's a mixture). If you are a germaphobe don't even bother touching the remotes. For the amount of money we spent on this attraction we felt it would have been more impactful with an actual guide. I can only recommend this attraction to individuals who are very much into semi self paced exhibits that require a lot of reading.

Took my wife and 2 kids (9 and 7) on a weekday. Bought the tickets in advance since they only admit groups at certain times. We had a good time. Liked the workers all in character. You are given cell phone like devices and you type in a number that is above an exhibit to hear more details. The best part is there are kids numbers too, so they get information more their speed. Man dressed as the captain at the end of the museum has been down to see the wreckage and had some very interesting stories.

"While the displays were interesting, having a docent walk us around was not."

Reviewed November 19, 2017 NEW
For 47 seniors walking on the hard floors, with few places to sit, was tough. Most of the time we read faster than we walk, so having someone mumble about the disaster was lass than good. We did enjoy the talk on the music playing, and listening to the Captain talk about his experiences.

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.
