Titanic - World's Largest Museum Attraction
Titanic Pigeon Forge is known as the largest permanent museum in the world dedicated to the RMS Titanic.
Upon entry, guests are given a boarding ticket that has a story of an actual passenger of the Titanic. The guests then follow the passenger’s story as the exhibit proceeds. Each of the artifacts that are shown relate directly to a passenger or crew member of the actual ship. The museum’s tours are self-guided and at the end of each tour, the guests are able to discover the fate that befell the passenger in the ticket.
The museum is actually shaped like the Titanic herself, except that museum is built approximately half the scale of the actual ship. To create the illusion of being at sea, the museum is also anchored in water, and it towers approximately 100 feet above Parkway. Throughout the museum, guests are able to walk on an actual size replica of the Grand Staircase that was one of the main features of the Titanic. The guests can also view pictures that more or less come to life, as well as touch a surface of a simulated iceberg and steer the ship. In the communications room, guests may be able to send SOS signals, and even receive communication from the coast guard. Gallery rooms are also filled with rare historical artifacts, and to top it off, guests are able to have a simulated underwater exploration of the Titanic.
New in 2014, enjoy a tribute gallery dedicated to one of Titanic's most colorful passengers. Margaret Tobin Brown is one of the most well-known passengers of the Titanic ship. Born in Hannibal, Missouri, Brown made a name for herself in Denver, Colorado, and eventually around the world. Her strength and spirit were what helped her to survive the Titanic disaster. Actress Debbie Reynolds paid tribute to the survivor in the film "The Unsinkable Molly Brown," and now you can too. Explore the exhibit at the Titanic museum in Pigeon Forge to find the costumes Reynolds wore in the film, as well as furniture, crystal glassware, artwork, photographs, memorabilia from the ship, and many other artifacts collected from around the world.
