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.

"Unbelievable and in Tennessee?!"
June, 2018 NEW
Visited whilst passing through and it was just wonderful. My great Uncle was the 4th officer on board and the detail they had on him was impressive and very accurate.
They have the largest collection of artefacts I’ve ever seen, some of which are one off’s and priceless.
The whole experience was immersive and so well thought out. Kids certainly wouldn’t get bored either.
The staff were exceptinal, knowledgable and very helpful.
This is a must see if you’re passing through and have any interest in the vessel a s its voyage.

"Fun experience"
June, 2018 NEW
I took my 15 year old grandson. The audio tour was interesting. There were so many things to talk about. He was a rich child on board and I was a 3rd class passenger. At the end we were happy to learn we both survived. The dresses were exquisite and the Titanic model built of Legos was fun to see.h

This is a self guided tour with an audio portion that you listen to individually as they give you a listening device at the beginning. Lots of information I was unaware of and lots to see. I will say we were with teenagers and they hated it, might be a outing for the parents one evening.

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.
