"Informative and interesting"
July 2019 NEW
My 13 yr old grandson and I visited the Titanic Museum in July 2019. He had very much wanted to go here. I was curious and while I thought it might be rather hoakey, I was hopeful. From the beginning of our tour, where we were each given a name and some info on them, and the staff dressed in period clothing, to the point of putting your hands in the icy water and feeling the coldness of the iceberg, I was moved. When you realize how cold that water was you wonder how anyone survived at all. I highly recommend visiting. We went to the 9am tour time, and while we were the first ones there, it quickly got busier. I would do that time again if I visit in the future.

"Chills!"
July 2019 NEW
I was very skeptical when I ordered the tickets online but wanted an educational experience for my children. We enjoyed it so much. I couldn't believe how intrigued all 3 of my children were and we had chill bumps the entire time! I highly recommend checking it out!

"Fantastic Ride Back in Time"
July 2019 NEW
My 9 year old autistic daughter is infatuated with history so we decided to take her (and her 5 yr old sister, and 17 month old brother) to this museum. Not only did she enjoy herself but my husband and I as well. Our 5 year old lost interest about 20 minutes in so it was a challenge to keep her entertained throughout the tour, however she did say that she too liked the museum. Our 17 month old road in his stroller the whole time and did fine. I would recommend doing an early morning tour or very late as it gets crowded quickly. We did the 10am tour and there were still a lot of people. The staff throughout are very knowledgeable and we very much enjoyed the live piano and violin playing. The iceberg room brought emotion from my daughter that I don't get to see often. She stated, "Mom, can you imagine fighting to survive and knowing that you won't make it? It's so sad." We will definitely be returning!

""A Truly Moving Experience!""
July 2019 NEW
This museum is very interesting with actual memorabilia and authentic items from the Titanic. The Grand Staircase is breath-taking.....beautifully detailed and ornate. The first-class quarters are so realistic, it's as if though you can imagine yourself as an actual passenger there in 1912. It is truly an emotional & sobering experience as you have the option to feel the icy, 28 degree water and touch an iceberg and imagine yourself there as the Titanic tragically sank.

"Titanic"
June 2019 NEW
This is a very interesting place. My kids 20s and 12 year old loved it. The only exception that be wise on the time you choose to go due to there was a lot of people and sometimes had to skip parts cause you just couldn’t get a chance to get up to the pictures

"5th Titanic Museum and The Best-Highly Recommend!"
June 2019 NEW
Our family is Titanic obsessed and Husband is decendant of a survivor. This museum is the best of the five we have been to-the staff (from the ticket office, to the gift shop and all inbetween!) were extremelty helpful in doing our research, the lay out and artifacts were phenomenal-many personal letters and items not seen at the others.

This has a lot to read, see, but very little for hands on, but it was worth a visit. I was disappointed about the no pictures.kinda cheesy but it was fun.i don't think kids would like it. It sounded fun, but was more of a history lesson.

"NOT a scaled-down replica of the Titanic"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed July 16, 2019 NEW
Arriving with expectations of being able to tour an actual scaled down replica of the Titanic, it was disappointing that the majority of the tour was through nondescript rooms containing information and artifacts about the building of the boat and its fateful cruise, and the lives it claimed and spared. We did like that you are assigned a passenger's name that you look for through the tour - out of curiosity - and then check the manifest at the end of the tour to see if you survived or succumbed to the sea (Spoiler alert: we both survived ). We also appreciated the few, and I do mean three, times that you do get to experience what it felt like to be on the Titanic: 1. The grand staircase with dome; 2. A first class sitting room and hallway which lead to a music room; 3. A walk on the outside deck which features true-to-life temperatures, including dipping your hand in 28-degree water. NOTE: BUY TICKETS IN ADVANCE ONLINE to guarantee entry when you want. The Titanic has tiered ticket sales, which if bought at the museum can leave you standing in the "First come first serve" area, so you may have to wait a long time or even come back another day. We bought our tickets online - WARNING: ticket prices vary, so do a search before clicking "Buy." As such, we were placed at the front of the line, which put about 70 people behind us, and we were able to enter the museum for the 3 pm tour, which we wanted, since we were traveling and needed to plan arrival and departure times.

"Disappointed"

Reviewed July 16, 2019 NEW
I was expecting more relics and actual pieces from the ship. There are a lot of reproductions, drawings and plans of the ship. Best part was the room with the simulated ice berg where you can feel the ice and water temperature. I wouldn't recommend it. Typical tourist trap.

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.
