"...did not disappoint...loved it." - Facebook Fan
“I thought it would be hokey. It wasn’t.” — Murphy Evans
“The best Titanic exhibit I’ve seen yet.” – TripAdvisor Review

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: 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.

My grandmother, my sister, and I toured the titanic museum while waiting for time for one of the dinner shows we were going to. I was moved at such how much history was in that building! It was a self guided tour which made it even better for my grandmother. At one point my grandmother actually cried. It is definitely worth the money if you have a interest in the titanic or history! My grandmother has already made mention that when we return to Pigeon Forge; she wants to return to the titanic!

"The "Unsinkable" TITANIC""
Reviewed November, 2015
Pigeon Forge is a great vacation getaway!
This town has a lot to offer in all weather conditions.
From the TITANIC self-led tour, which shows you a in depth view of what amenities the cruise cast were afforded, to who survived, and who didn't.

You are assigned as a passenger, by name, which allows you to learn your fate, at some time during your "cruise" visit. Well worth the$$ spent, however, no cameras allowed inside, as a tribute to those who lost their lives, that fateful night.
Tip: be sure to touch the cold water!

"Piece of History"
Reviewed August, 2015
From the moment you walk up to ship, you enter the world of Titanic. All of the Hosts and Hostesses are dressed in attire of that time. They are very knowledgeable and gladly answer all questions. You have your own personal recorder to listen to as you stroll through the cases and cases of personal possessions belonging to the passengers and crew. There are recorders especially for children too. You will see handwritten letters, clothing, dinnerware, furniture and much more. All of these artifacts are real; they have been brought up from the Titanic and preserved for all to see. You'll meet the "Captain", who has personally been on the Titanic. "I was 4 feet from the Captain's bathtub." He is a joy to chat with. You will see and touch an actual piece of the hull of the Titanic. They have created an iceberg that you can touch. You can put your hand into the 29 degree water that the passengers jumped into that horrific night. I can't say enough about the exhibit. Plan on plenty of time when you go to the Titanic and get your tickets ahead of time online. You'll move ahead of the long line waiting to buy tickets. Enjoy going back into history........
Tip: Have plenty of time planned to tour the Titanic. Don't try to rush history. At the beginning, each visitor is given a passport of someone the was on the ship that fatefull night. It will have a short description of that person. As the end, you will find out if "you lived or died." Very interesting!

I've always loved the history of the Titanic; so when I heard of this museum I had to go. To say this place was wonderful would be a understatement. I loved how there were workers dressed as guest on the Titanic and explained the history. My husband is an impatient person and won't take the time to read; when the workers stepped in and explained the history my husband enjoyed the trip a lot more. I tell everyone about the Titanic Museum and that it is a must see.

Reviewed July, 2015
This was our first vacation in years and our son had been wanting to visit the Titanic Museum for some time. Everyone was very nice and helpful. We did not feel rushed. Others in our group seemed to be in a hurry but we took our time. As a family we read the panels on the walls and talked about the different items on display. There was a lot of information that we did not know about. After we left the museum we still talked about what we saw. Also the water rushing down the stairs. You could get a sense of what it must have been like to see the water coming. We will be back.

We have been to the Titanic at least four times. Each time, I see something that I did not notice before - like watching a favorite movie. It is great for teens and adults. I'm not sure about younger children - they might get bored, but maybe not. There is a LOT to see, read, and hear. I really appreciate the fact that the listening devices are now included with your ticket. You used to have to pay extra for them. The "hosts" stay in character and add a lot of interesting information. They will also answer questions and never seem to be in a hurry or brush you off.The entire exhibit is AMAZING!

This was well designed, some interesting artifacts....but the peson who said it was a history lesson was right! The only problem is...I hated history! My husband and I went with my brother in law and sister in law...I don't know if they really liked it or not....after paying that much for it, we hated to say that was sooo boring! I would not go back for free! You have to be willing to read every display, and you have to love History. The most exciting part was when you found out if the passenger you have been assigned to be lived or died.

"Neat way to learn some history"
Reviewed April, 2015
This museum was pretty neat in that when you enter you get a boarding pass of someone who was actually on the ship. You go throughout the museum seeing artifacts and listening to testimonies of survivors and at the end you find out if your person survived. it made the typical museum more interactive. We went on a rainy day though and there were a ton of people there trying to get out of the rain too but the museum did a good job at spacing out the number of people entering at a time.
Tip: I think this is more suited for older kids and adults. There are a few interactive stations but I doubt younger children would like walking through the museum looking at and reading about all of the artifacts.

"MESMERIZING AS WELL AS EDUCATIONAL"
Reviewed March, 2015
This attraction in Gatlinburg, TN is absolutely, positively, wholeheartedly the most mesmerizing, amazing, and overwhelming place packed with knowledge, artifacts, pictures, and even (my personal fav) boasts an EXACT replica of the grand staircase remodeled to a perfect "T" from the AUTHENTIC blueprints (also showcased) of the RMS Titanic herself! The entire tour and museum ENRAPTURES the audience into a personalized journey that expresses life, society, industry, and history of the infamous shipwreck tragedy on April 15, 1912 that every person in the world has at least heard about or learned. The Titanic Museum is bursting with an information overload of the world during the early 1900s when the Titanic was first conceived and guides tourists through an extensive, enlightening, and astonishing journey that ends with the infamous tragedy that befell the ship. An interactive audio storytelling experience helps guide and entertain throughout the attraction, and every single room is intriguing, beautiful, well organized, and built & shaped as the actual ship once adorned on the majestic and "unsinkable" Titanic! This museum is my ultimate, all-time favorite, even though I have ALWAYS hated history, and the absolute most AMAZING museum that I have ever had the pleasure to visit in the USA in my 32 years with an abundance of memories of beautiful, exciting places under my belt from all over the place! My only regret and now future wish, is that when my husband and I return again ALONE (definitely not with 3 small children, only 1 of which was actually interested in reading and looking at the material and pictures until, of course, the children's room and play section towards the end of the attraction) that we schedule more time and have plenty of opportunity to read and absorb every piece of information, artifact, and picture in the whole museum! To be honest, the museum is not recommended if attending with small children, especially since it's too hard to keep their interest and attention on any of the rooms in the exhibit for more than a few minutes, so unfortunately parents have to sacrifice quite a bit of each exhibit in each room, in order to move the "bored" crowd along before one easily could end up losing track and sight of all hyper, bored, small children. Our 6 and 4 year old children were totally not entertained and could really care less about what they considered "an old boat, black and white photos, lots of words, and cool stuff in glass boxes that are off limits to touching or playing with the whole time!" - which was 80% of the Titanic attraction. The last 5 rooms of the exhibit were more eye-catching and sensory appealing, as well as generally more family friendly than the first two-thirds of the museum. The gift shop at the end was very nice and had lots of souvenirs, memorabilia, and Titanic merchandise to choose from, as well as a photo booth if you want ANY family pics from the attraction. Cell phones, cameras, and all other electronic/media devices are not allowed, which is a bummer, but worth it since the museum takes photos of each party which are available for sale in the gift shop. Wish I could take pics inside the museum, but I try to think of that as a reason to return over and over again every time we visit the Smoky Mountains!
Tip: No Cell Phones, Cameras, or Video Recorders Allowed! Not the most fun or entertaining place in town for children under the age of 8. Must also call ahead of time and reserve arrival time and date of tour, if tickets are pre-purchased to ensure admittance.

"Saved and Blessed"
Reviewed February, 2015
We loved this attraction. Learned so much. They also had a Captain there that resembled the real one. He was so informative, so passionate, and such a blessing to us. Please go if you have the chance.
Tip: Do not hurry through. Read all the information. Remember these are real lives that were affected.

"Great Experience"
Reviewed February, 2015
This was an amazing experience. You feel like you are actually on the titanic. I loved the real life experiences and the testimonies from people who were actually on the ship. Some of the artifacts from the ship were amazing. So hard to believe they were on the bottom of the ocean for nearly 80 years! Would definitely go back!
Tip: Wear a coat! It's chili in side but truthfully it made it feel more real and may have been part of the experience.

"Terrific Titanic"
Reviewed February, 2015
This was one of the greatest exhibits I have been to. My son who was 11 at the time of this trip could not get enough. I have to say the same about myself. He has been into the titanic for many years, having all kinds of paraphernalia and books at home. We have even gone to a traveling exhibit. But I cannot say enough about this experience. I loved the way you could enjoy it on your own listening to the audio information at your own pace. I did both the adult and children's versions and loved them both. It was really cool too to learn about the character you were given and find out if they survived or not and the follow up to their lives if they were one of the few that did survive. This is a great experience for people of all ages.
Tip: It is a lot to see and listen to so play on taking your time and enjoying every minute.

"Great Experience for all ages"
Reviewed February, 2015
We took our girl scout troop from Michigan to see the tour at The Titanic Museum. Our girls were 11 and 12 years old. We were not sure if they would enjoy this as much as we, the adults, knew we would. From the very beginning when you are assigned your passenger name and character information, to every room, to listening to the captain tell stories that brought tears to our eyes and to actually feel the cold water the experience was wonderfully. It inspired my daughter so much that she chose the Titanic as a topic for an essay in school the next year. I would recommend this tour for all ages.
Tip: Expect to spend at least 2 hours or more to fully enjoy every aspect. Make sure you take time to talk to the characters placed throughout the museum.

"EXCELLENT"
Reviewed February, 2015
Our whole family loved this (me, husband, & 3 girls ages 18,9,&7). Very educational and informative of the events that happened that terrible night for the Titanic and all it's passenger's. The kids loved receiving the replica boarding passing of an actual passenger and finding out the fate of that person at the end of the tour, learning how many dogs were on the Titanic and sticking their hand in water that was the actual temperature of the water the night that the Titanic sank. Very interesting, we would definitely go here again.
Tip: If you like history this is a must see

"Awesome"
Reviewed February, 2015
I have to admit, I was a little nervous booking with Reserve Pigeon Forge. I had never done this before and didn't know how it would be. The service was very easy to use. We were celebrating my daughter's 15th birthday and the Titanic is one of her favorite stories. The booking was well done. The tickets got us to the front of the line at Titanic and the museum was really awesome. We had a great time and I was very pleased. More importantly, my daughter was well pleased.
Tip: It was more fun in our opinion to not follow the recorded tour but to just enjoy it on our own. Everyone may not feel that way, but we did.

"Awesome experience!"
Reviewed February, 2015
I have always loved anything about the Titanic and have been wanting to go since it was built in Pigeon Forge. In planning a trip last June, I mentioned that I was buying tickets. My husband was very reluctant to tour the museum and fussed about going. But he did go and totally got into it and enjoyed it thoroughly. He loved the history of it and I loved the costumes and artifacts. We both had fun anticipating our survival or demise. He survived! I did not....I gave my seat up to a
friend with children. I recommend it highly.
Tip: Plan for plenty of time. You do not want to rush.

"Very educational of actual event"
Reviewed January, 2015
The Titanic is an eye-catcher from the start from the outside... Very interesting detail... Awesome creativity,,, Your guide is actually through an electronic device that you hold to your ear like a cell phone... Lots of things to read (for those of you who love to read... Lots of things to see and lots of interesting hands-on activities... ONLY THING is when you have a group taking the tour around you (that you don't know) and they want to read out loud to the folks they're with... Totally disrespectful and made our tour unpleasant...
Tip: No cameras allowed inside nor cell phones for privacy purposes!!!! Pics can be taken outside but that's it!!!!

I had a great experience visiting the Titanic Museum! The period costumes and little mini-history lessons were so interesting. I've always been interested in the story of the Titanic and was very impressed by the number of actual artifacts they had. The exhibits were interesting and interactive and they even had a tour for children.
Tip: Easier to get in when you buy tickets in advance.

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.

"Amazing Tour!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed May 04, 2016 NEW

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.

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 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.

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.
