Myth Busters: Do you know the real TITANIC Museum Attraction?
Myth: The Titanic Museum Attraction in Pigeon Forge is probably just another boring museum. Fact: Absolutely not. Endorsed by the world-famous Titanic Historical Society, Titanic Museum Attraction is an internationally recognized living museum that holds the largest display of Titanic artifacts anywhere.
Myth: To get in, you must stand in long lines for hours. Fact: It’s true we’re busy, especially on weekends and holidays; however, advance tickets make it easy to reserve a guaranteed hourly entrance time.
Myth: Some Titanic “artifacts” on display just have to be replicas. Fact: The more than 400 genuine Titanic artifacts our galleries display are valued above $4 million and hold documented evidence of provenance. “Visitors get a boarding pass in the name of an actual passenger, whose fate they learn at the end of the visit...” — The New York Times, March 14, 2012
Myth: Kids won't enjoy the Titanic Museum Attraction. Fact: Children five years and older are fascinated and really get it. They describe their museum experiences with words like “awesome,” “fun,” and “really cool.” The museum attraction is a living classroom filled with hands-on opportunities that motivate, educate and inspire. Every child receives a special boarding pass profiling a youngster who actually sailed on Titanic—a passenger who children can relate to. We even created a special audio tour just for kids that brings the Titanic story to life, and our onboard Scavenger Hunt adds to the excitement. Voted one of five museum exhibits sure to “delight kids and parents” by The Dallas Morning News.
Amenities: Handicap accessible, elevator, free parking, bus parking, gift shop. We also offer rentals for special occasions like birthdays, weddings and vow renewal services.
