When the crew members prepared to display this Bible, it fell open to this scripture: (KJV) John 6:16-21. See it on display for a limited time at the Titanic in Pigeon Forge, Tn.

Introduced in 2014, a WORLD EXCLUSIVE Exhibit! A Tribute gallery dedicated to one of Titanic's most colorful passengers Margaret "Unsinkable Molly" Brown. 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: 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.

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?
