Three of us visited the Titanic and we were amazed. The accuracy of the information they presented and the way in which they were able to present it in an understandable way was very enjoyable. I also enjoyed the way they engaged you with a boarding pass that had one of the people's name's that was on board the Titanic. We also liked that we were told what happened with the people who survived. We thought that the way you have to make an appointment to avoid over-crowding makes the experience much more enjoyable also.
The actor/tour guides are fantastic at what they do! This is a $20 attraction with much more 'worth' to it than most area attractions! If you've pondered going there, don't ponder any longer and just do it, you won't regret it. There's not much I can add that 5000+ previous reviews haven't already covered. That speaks for itself, this museum is worth the $20. Lots of interactive items, lots of sad stories, lots of history and information. You can take your time even if you might think you have to stick with the group you enter with, you don't. They let about 30 in at a time.
Great place to see real artifacts and learn about the people and crew that travelled aboard the Titanic. Well laid out, pretty affordable for a family of 4.

Our family enjoyed the history of this attraction. Great for most ages, even children. This was one of our favorite things that we did on our trip.

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 unequalled 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.
