Anne Mercer

A phenomenal look into the personal experiences aboard the Titanic. The interactive exhibits help guests understand what transpired that fateful night. Don’t rush through the museum — every part of the self-guided tour is worth your time. Finding out the fate of your assigned passenger is an experience beyond words.

Description

from Titanic Museum Attraction
We've built a ship-shaped permanent, interactive Titanic Museum Attraction in Pigeon Forge, Tn. Everyone knows the name Titanic! Everyone knows that Titanic hit an iceberg! Everyone knows Titanic was lost! But there is so much more to her story.

Limited Engagement: Titanic Movie Costumes on Display
June 17 – Labor Day

In 2017, Titanic Museum will honor the 20th anniversary of Academy Award-winning creator/director James Cameron's monumental movie - Titanic! As viewers—the joy, fear and loss they experienced—we experienced. We are honored to display costumes from this motion picture from June 17 – Labor Day.

Plus, the owner of this museum, John Joslyn, co-led the second expedition to the Titanic wreck site. And, produced the first television show with the first Titanic images from the bottom of the ocean. See his images on display.

Life Jacket on Display
There are 10 known Titanic life jackets. The life jacket now on display in Pigeon Forge will be on exhibit through 2017. Titanic fact: There were plenty of life jackets for every Titanic passenger and crew member. Unfortunately, the Captain did not hold a life boat drill, which would have included how to wear the life jackets.

Discover the stories of the passengers and crew who sailed Titanic, as our crew and interactive galleries bring them to life. We are more than just a museum; we are a Permanent, Interactive Attraction for all ages.
• Walk the Grand Staircase
• Steer the ship
• Learn to send an SOS signal
• Touch an iceberg
• KID FRIENDLY
• 2 Hour walk-through experience

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.

Great history lesson. Very moving experience. We learned much about thatnight we never knew. Feeling the water temperature and the ice makes you aware of how horrified the passengers had to have been.

"Amazing Museum"

The Titanic Museum is certainly amazing. They have countless artifacts, as well as many pictures I had never seen before. It’s also a educational experience. They don’t allow photography, but if you are careful and determined , you can snap some secretly. It’s fairly interactive, which enhances the experience. You can’t go to Pigeon Forge without going to the Titanic Museum.

We brought a group of teen girls from our Boys & Girls Club to the Museum. They had all seen the movie Titanic, but this brought the actual history to life for them. We had a group tour and our guide was kept the girls attention and made the stories real. I couldn't say enough about how great she was! I highly recommend this to older children through teens and adults.

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.
