Living Titanic Exhibits - RMS Titanic Lifejackets in Branson, MO

3235 West 76 Country Boulevard Branson, , MO 65616
Come see some actual artifacts from the RMS Titanic including some of the actual lifejackets that were on the luxury liner. The museum located in Branson, Missouri it is a testament to not just the artifacts but the history of the grand ship.

The RMS Titanic has become a part of folklore and history not for its grandeur but for the tragic fate that befell it during its maiden voyage that began on April 10, 1912. On its fourth day out to sea Titanic hit an iceberg which led to the ship sinking and of the 2,224 on board, 1,500 tragically lost their life. Part of the reason there weren't enough lifeboats to save them all, and another reason despite being at sea four days lifejacket drills hadn't been done but was scheduled for the next day.

Which brings us to this amazing exhibit, of all the lifejackets that were on the Titanic only twelve are still in existence and here there is a chance to see seven of them on display. The lifejackets were made out of canvas and cork, which may seem surprising because by today's standards certainly not the safest and most practical material to use for something that is supposed to float in the water. But this was the early twentieth century and so much was still not known.

The exhibit at the Titanic Museum Attraction in Branson will take place from March till June. It is something that anyone who is fascinated with the legend of the Titanic, historians or someone who just want to bear witness to a piece of history will enjoy visiting.
