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.

"Awesome Titanic!"
November, 2018 NEW
Visiting the Titanic museum was very eye-opening. Each one of my family were issued a card of a passenger on the ship so that we could follow that person's story throughout the museum. Some of us survived and some of us did not. There were lots of exhibits with personal artifacts that had been brought up from the ship and there were letters and pictures of people who had written their families before leaving on the forsaken trip. Each visitor also got a headphone that we could listen to as we toured the exhibits on our own which meant we could tarry as long as we wanted to at each section. There were interactives for children and adults alike: we could feel the cold water that the passengers felt when the ship sunk, we could see the location of the ship in a miniature oceon bottom scene, and we could walk along planks representing the ship at the various levels of sinking. There is even a live talk from a man who had dived on the shipwreck. There was a live performance on the replica piano from the ship and we could walk up the replica staircase from the ship as well. Reserve Pigeon Forge was reasonable and we had no issues with our tickets. A wonderful experience for all!

Tip: Be prepared to read lots of information about each of the exhibits if you really want to understand the ship and the time period.

Such an awesome place to visit. It felt as if we were back in time. A lot of information on history that kids today will never understand. Each staff member made you feel so welcome and I really enjoyed the gift shop as well.

The titanic ship is well worth your money of knowing how,where,and why the ship went down and really felt bad for people that went into the water that was really really cold. They will actually let you feel the degree of the water that the people on the ship died because of how cold the water was. It's well worth your money for sure!!!!

"Worth a visit"
November, 2018 NEW
Thoroughly enjoyed the museum and all the displays, facts, etc which is enhanced by the audio tour. I like that you get a passenger's boarding pass that you can connect to throughout the museum. The only thing is that you're supposed to find out at end of museum what happened to your passenger, but the back of the card has their bio...with date of death. Kind of a giveaway, lol. But still a great museum to visit.

This was my second visit to this Titanic museum and I enjoyed it just as much as my first visit. The artifacts, art and layout are all on point and the history is so interesting. The members take the time to enrich your visit with "behind the scenes" information and stories. I definitely would recommend this tour to families or couples. May be a little long for young children. So worth the time and money.

What I liked the most about this museum is seeing the actual size of different rooms and memorabilia. We’ve all seen the story of the Titanic in the movies but when you can see things in the actual size it makes a huge difference. They showed the different angles or degrees of the boat up in the air. You could climb on a pretend boat at that angle and see how difficult it really would be to hold on.

Could not be any happier with our visit the the Titanic Musuem!! The outside of the building itself is impressive and fun to walk around and take pictures. The exhibits are interesting and there is so much to see. The audio tour is great and has so many interesting stories. Every worker we encountered was completely fantastic beginning at the entrance. They all interacted with our small children and really made the visit memorable and one of a kind. Our four year old boy cannot stop talking about how much fun he had and has asked to return more times than I can count.

What a neat exhibit! There is a lot of information to read if you are a history buff, but also many visual presentations you can look at if reading isn't your favorite. One exhibit that really hit home with our group was the room where they have the temperature adjusted to the night of the crash, and a large pool of water set to the temperature of the sea the night the ship went down. It was shocking how frigid the air and water were, and made us very aware of the sheer terror and pain the riders of the Titanic experienced that dreadful night.

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.
