One of the very best museums I have ever visited! Well worth the time and money. I would highly recommend touring this museum while in the Pigeon Forge area! Two other ladies were with me, and we all felt the same. Great gift shop too!

Tip: Tickets are cheaper when purchased on Tripster versus purchasing upon arrival. We started our tour around 10:00 a.m., and it was much less crowded than it was when we were leaving.

"Buy Tickets Ahead!"
September 2019 NEW
Making a schedule and buying tickets ahead of a vacation is so much easier than wasting time standing in line at the ticket office. And then, depending on the event/activity you may not be able to get tickets when you arrive at the destination. It is always best to "plan ahead" to get the best seats and the time suitable for you. Working with Tripster was a breeze. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Titanic Museum in Pigeon Forge. Actually this was our second time. We took our grandchildren with us this time. They were in awe! It is truly a site to see.

"The Unsinkable Ship"
August 2019
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
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!

Tip: We've been in the afternoon and evening - both good times. Makes sure you are ready to spend at least 2 hours walking thru - it's truly amazing.

"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.

"A very informative museum with great artifacts."
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed September 16, 2019 NEW
The wife, daughter and I visited here today. The museum was mostly empty so we were able to move along at our leisure. The museum provided an audio tour device; however, I mostly skipped the tour with the exception of particular points of interest, in favor of spending more focus on reading the written placard information and examining the artifacts displayed. Artifacts include dishes, clothing, writings, photographs, and other curiosities; anyone with a true interest in Titanic should appreciate the opportunity to be face-to-face with these items which were buried in the bottom of the ocean for over a half-century or more. There were a few interactive experiences such as trivia questions, an exact replica of the grand staircase, a ship hallway, etc... My favorite was a mockup of the ship's deck where you could touch an iceberg, and dip your hand over the side of the ship into 28F degree water and see just how painfully sharp the water would have been for the unfortunate souls who had to submerge themselves in it. I also appreciated the sloped decks you were invited to try to walk on, one being at a 45-degree angle. As I tried to find a way to wedge myself on there (which is difficult), I tried to imagine a mother trying to hold onto her baby in the same scenario. Overall, it was well done. The average layperson may not appreciate the exhibits so much, but I do think if you have any educational, emotional or historical connection to the Titanic, you will appreciate this experience. My only wish in this is that there would have been a few "picture-friendly" areas, such as the slopes, the bridge/wheelhouse, the deck w/ iceberg, etc... I understand the copyright issues and I can imagine there would be difficulty in trying to enforce the camera policies, but these few spots, it would have been nice to be able to have a way to get a family photo.

this was my 3rd visit and as always we really enjoyed our time there. They have improved the photo op experience. One change I did not like was the removal of the display that shows the wreckage today. It is technically still there but not visible as they now have a lego display of the ship. The lego ship is a nice addition but displayed in the wrong place.

when to enter you are given a device to listen to stories as you go, it's nice because you can go and listen at your own speed. I learned a lot I never knew , seeing what the ship looked like inside and learning about they lived on the ship. You can even feel how cold the water was. Loved the gift shop

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.
