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.

Amenities: Handicap accessible, elevator, free parking, bus parking, gift shop. We also offer rentals for special occasions like birthdays, weddings and vow renewal services.

Wonderful, interesting and historical. I found this experience unique from the entrance gate. Being assigned the name of an actual passenger and then finding out more biographical information about this passenger was informative. Then, learning that passenger's fate was interesting.

Tip: Buy tickets for this activity before trip if possible, and try to see Titanic movie before this tour.

After a warm week left us scrambling to come up with alternative ski trip plans, our Girl Scout Troop decided to visit the Titanic museum (and then watch the movie, but thats a story for another day, right Rose?) Thursday afternoon, the museum was not too crowded and we were able to walk right up to the self serve kiosk and purchase our tickets. When we proceeded in, we were each given an audio tour and a boarding pass for a passenger or crew member. We wandered through the whole museum looking for clues to find out if we perished or survived the ill fated voyage... The museum is a fairly nice experience that covers a heavy topic in a way that is both informative and honors those who did not survive. The replica staircase was absolutely amazing (its not actual size) and the photo gallery was very interesting to see as well. It was cool to see the replicas of the rooms and the artifacts that have been recovered from the ship throughout the museum. I even learned how many dogs were on board. The girls in the troop were interested through out the whole museum and even commented that it was much better than they had thought it would be. Highly recommended if you like the movie or just like the time period. Only thing is that they do not allow photos in all but one of the galleries, so leave the big cameras in the car.

My wife and I love history and really enjoyed our visit. It was very informative and you get a great understanding of the passengers on board..their social status and how they handled the sinking. There are lot of individual stories, which was our favorite part. The artifacts were interesting to see too, especially the life vest. Probably not suitable for kids under 10 since there is a lot of reading. The audio tour was great too. Just be sure to look for the signs that tell you which recording to listen to. Some of the signs are hard to find and you will walk by them unless paying close attention. Overall, well worth the $20 admission (be sure to buy online to save money).

Amazing museum with actual artifacts from the wreckage of the R.M.S Titanic! As you're driving through Pigeon Forge this mammoth front section of the titanic and the iceberg that it struck come into view and you can help but stare. Upon entering the museum you are greeted by staff dressed in replica clothing from what the crew members of the ship wore. You are given an audio device to listen to during your tour and a boarding pass with an actual guest from the real manifest and you are to discover by the end of the tour if your name was among the survivors or the deceased. It was an amazing experience for young and old alike. Stunning artifacts and history you never knew. A must see!

I really enjoyed my visit to the Titanic museum. We spent about 4 hrs making our way through the self guided tour. I am a huge history buff anyway so seeing all the items from the ship along with seeing the photos and hearing from the survivors about thier eyewitness accounts was so very moving. There were stories of love and heartbreak, of heroism and duty. One more than one occasion I was a bit weepy. When you come in you're given a boarding pass with the name of an actual passenger, at the end of the tour there's a listing of all the survivors by Crew, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Class...you check your card to see if you lived. I lived!! Certainly worth seeing, bring the whole family. This is a good history lesson for the kids too!

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.

What are the requirements for the Family Pass?

The Family Pass includes 2 adults and up to 4 children (18 years and under living at home). Minimum 4 tickets per family pass.
