"Titanic"
January, 2019 NEW
My wife and I enjoyed the experience immensely. I was particularly interested in the review of the manufacturing process. The stateroom mockups were outstanding as well as the bridge. We were lucky enough to go to Halifax on our honeymoon and one of the places we visited was the cemetery where some of the deceased were buried. Very somber. The grand staircase was fabulous. The whole experience was wonderful. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. I really appreciated them being in period clothing. We will be back and we have recommended this to everyone. I even did some more research on my "passenger" Arthur Ryerson.

Historically accurate and smartly interactive. Enjoyed connecting on a personal level as passenger aboard the cruise liner. Loved the layout as it was in chronological order from an idea on paper to it's final resting place. I recommend this for the whole family.

"Terrific Trip into History"
January, 2019
I have always craved more history on the Titanic and was happy to get it during our tour. Ladies and gentlemen, dressed in period attire, greet visitors at the entrance, give you your identity, and offer options to stop and chat and learn more than is on your audio device. Travel through the museum with audio and written history at your leisure.

Learn how the Titanic and her sister ships were built and by whom, the state of the art construction process and innovations, the massiveness of the anchors, the mechanics of the giant coal driven boilers, and the elegance and detail in the areas of the ship for the rich and famous. Learn the layout of the ship and take a walk up the grand staircase before the tour culminates with that fateful night when the dream ended.

Imagine traveling in grand luxury or in a third class family room. Imagine being one of the ship's staff members who made it all work. Imagine the horror that night when the iceberg ravaged the unsinkable ship. Then, touch the iceberg and see how long you can keep your hand in the water. Imagine as the massive and magnificent Titanic began sliding into the frigid waters of the Atlantic. Finally, see if you survived!

You can almost hear the laughter, excitement, and then the dismay and resignation as those left on the ship entered the last minutes of their lives.

Go. Learn. Enjoy and leave with a bit of awe.

Tip: Children have their own story to listen to as they journey through the ship. Be prepared for a lot of walking and know photos or recordings are NOT allowed inside the ship.

Our family enjoyed everything about this place. From the outside to all the inside displays it was fascinating! It was exciting and depressing at the same time to touch the "iceberg" and stick my arm in the "ocean water"

"We Are Survivors"

Reviewed February 15, 2019 NEW
I must say if you like museums this is a must see. It is just amazing to read the stories of those on that fateful day. When you arrive you greeted like boarding a ship and I love the costumes the employees wore the tour is self guided. You get a random boarding pass of an actual passenger at the end you learn your fate. You will leave feeling as if you truly took a journey back in time. My husband and I both just happen to get passengers who were survivors. I was in first class and he was in third class. I really felt so thankful afterwards that I actually survived. By the way you can't take any photos until the very end.

"Very interesting and educational but long wait time"

Reviewed February 15, 2019 NEW
Once we finally started the tour it was really great. My 8 and 11 year olds were with me and there were parts of the exhibits that really interested them especially the 11 year old. This would not be good for children younger than 7. The standing around waiting nearly had my 8 year old past the point his patience could handle. We went early on a weekday and arrived before the crowds but a bus arrived with a tour group while I was checking in and they put the tour group in front of us which made us have to stand around and wait for the tour group to finish for over an hour. I still enjoyed it enough that it was worth the wait but I’m not sure if I would go with children again.

"Do It. And Then Do It Again."

Reviewed February 14, 2019 NEW
I took my wife primarily for the Valentine's dinner which also came with a tour. This was one of several things we had planned on our visit to the area, but it was by far the best. We had several things we were going to do that day, but ended up spending 3 1/2 hours just walking through the exhibits. I don't regret that one bit. It was surreal reading the stories, looking at the pictures, and seeing the exhibits. I had been to the Titanic exhibit in Orlando several years ago (that was great too), but this one was really awesome. The pictures and stories were informative, but the relics made it real. If you haven't, go. If you have, go again. They switch out exhibits from time to time with their Branson, Missouri museum and so we hope to go back soon. They have the largest collection of recovered life jackets and are bringing those in this summer, including the one worn by survivor Madeleine Astor, wife of John Jacob Astor. The Valentine's dinner was an absolute hit. EXPENSIVE, but a hit. The food was great and we "had to be rolled out of there" when it was all over. We had the opportunity to be seated for the dinner on the grand staircase and I could not have managed to do anything better for my wife this Valentine's.

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.
