"Amazing!!!"
April 2019 NEW
This is the second trip to the Titanic for my husband and I and the first for my son! He is a Titanic lover! I enjoyed this time as much as my first visit. Very educational and interesting. We were there on the 107th anniversary of the Titanic hitting the iceberg. Which was kinda of emotional, but very honoring to those who died and survived the Titanic. I definitely will return again.Highly recommend everyone to take the time if you have a chance to visit it!!!

As a part of our reservation with Reserve Direct, my husband and I visited the Titanic Museum. This was the highlight of our trip! We were able to walk right in with our tickets on my phone! The things we learned while on the tour was amazing and talking with the owner who actually went down to the Titanic was an added bonus!! I would recommend this museum to everyone.

Incredible attraction! I loved the fact that the tour is self-guided, but that there were staff members along the way to answer questions if you had them. The artifacts and displays were fascinating! I took my grandmother for her birthday and she loved every minute. The staff even brought out a wheelchair for her when she got tired so she wouldn't have to walk the whole way. The best part for me was the Lego block scale model of the ship!

"I felt I was on the Titanic"
March 2019
This was the best self guided tour I have ever taken! Totally worth seeing it. And I wouldn’t have lasted long in the icy waters that night. My hand wouldn’t move in less than 5 seconds. And I played the grand piano. I finger but I got to play it. The staff was awesome!

"Suitable attraction "
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed May 18, 2019 NEW
Coming from England we were surprised at this area having so many attractions and decided on this one as being the most suitable for us. We really enjoyed it and found it very informative, it does make reference to the film and states that obviously a lot of stuff in the film is not actually true. The staff are dressed in time appropriate costume and are extremely polite and knowledgeable. I have to agree with some comments that the price is a little high but for an educational and informative tour that includes genuine artefacts it was worth it.

Really worth doing. Very interesting museum. Veterans discount or come during Veterans Day week and get free entry. Staff dresses in Irwin’s costume. You’re handed a card with the name of an actual passenger that was aboard titanic and find out at the end if you survived or perished. Audio tour so you can go at your own pace and hear the history as you go along.

This museum was suggested to me by a friend at work. It was worth the visit. You are given a “boarding pass” with the identity of a real passenger when the tour begins. By the end, you find out if “you” survived and that makes it a really immersive experience. Unfortunately, you can’t take photos in the exhibit but they do give you a photo op at the end.

I was impressed that out of respect for the surviving family members you aren't allowed to take pictures. The lay out is well thought out, and exhibits are interesting. (Even thought the gift shop was reasonably priced)

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.
