The Titanic Museum Attraction in Branson is a permanent, ship-shaped interactive museum that was built to celebrate the ship, passengers, and crew by telling their stories; everyone knows that the Titanic hit an iceberg and sank, but this museum delves into lesser-known stories, histories, and more to give you an authentic experience. Join the museum for a self-guided tour through the ship, where you can explore many interactive exhibits. Spend an hour and a half walking through the replica of the great ocean liner, and explore from the museum lobby to the Captains Bridge and Memorial Wall, ending with the Survivors Wall of Stories.
Upon entry, guests receive a boarding pass of an actual Titanic passenger or crew member and follow their story while examining over $4.5 million of artifacts. Walk an exact replica of the Grand Staircase, touch an iceberg, help shovel “coal,” and hear true passenger stories while sitting in an actual size lifeboat. Learn the fate of your passenger in the Memorial Room, and contemplate the new gallery featuring 133 children's stories.
Other places on the tour include the Model of Magnificent Excess, a one-of-a-kind 18-foot scale Titanic model built exclusively for the exhibit. German designer Peter Davies-Garner used the original working drawings of Irish shipbuilders, Harland and Wolff, to create this amazing model. Also visit Molly and Carter, two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, in their doggy kennel and discover some interesting facts about dogs and other animals that traveled aboard the Titanic.
See the difference between the third and first class living quarters during your exploration. Learn how many people stayed in one third-class cabin, whether that was a bathroom available in the room, and how much it would cost today. When learning about the first class, visit one of the luxurious staterooms and listen to stories from first class survivors.
Visit the Memorial Wall at the end of the tour. There, you can learn the fate of your assigned passenger or crew member, and the fate of so many others. Over 2200 names line the wall, and the museum provides these long-lost people with a voice by honoring their memories and retelling their stories.
The Titanic museum is also one of the highest rated in the area, as well as the recipient of many TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Awards.
