"The Unsinkable Ship"
August 2019 NEW
Being a huge fan of the movie and always intreiged by the story as a child it came to life right before my eyes. From that beautiful staircase the gold trimings I lost my breath at the beauty. It was super fun being assigned a person whom was actually a passenger and following their life that horrible night. I Love the story Love the displays. Amazed at the condition of some items that were that old and under water for so long....... The replica that was built by the young boy was breath taking.....Totally suggest this attraction 100%

"Amazing attraction!"
August 2019 NEW
This makes our third visit to Titanic. It just keeps getting better. Our average each trip has been 2/2.5 hours. There's so much to look at. It doesn't get stale - each visit is fresh and new. There was also a new speaker as the Captain - Lowell Lytle. He's amazing! His talk and adventures would be worth the visit alone! Looking forward to going back to another visit!

"Informative and interesting"
July 2019
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
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
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!

you get in line and walk through the museum with little listening devices that tell you about each section that you are in. It shows you how they designed the ship, where they built it and talks about the voyage. i don't want to spoil too much of it. You just have to come see it!!!!

We learned a lot about the Titanic. And to be able to see items that were actually on the ship was fantastic. And the best part - we found the name of a relative that was part of the ships crew. He was a gym employee!

We are both fascinated by anything Titanic. The story of its passengers and crew amazes us, so we saved for over a year to come see your Titanic Museum in Pigeon Forge, Tn. We drove up one day, visited the museum the next day, and came back home to Florida the day after that. That quick trip was well worth those two rushed days! We both enjoyed our visit from the first moment we entered. The staff was so kind, and helpful, and SO knowledgeable, and it was absolutely fascinating listening to them bring the story of the passengers and crew to life in the most personal of ways. The tour was relaxed and leisurely, and the exhibits riveting. The grand staircase was amazing, the music room beautiful but sad. The sweet young lady in the survivors room ( I cant remember her name, unfortunately) had many amazing stories about the passengers and crew, and in the gift shop, where I sent a happy hour browsing, a lovely lady named Lesley helped me to choose just the right gifts for my family and friends back home. We plan to come back next year, and look forward to seeing it all over again!!

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.
