Titanic Museum Attraction, Pigeon Forge

4.5
#1 of 10 in Museums in Pigeon Forge
Step back in time with a visit to Titanic Museum Attraction, a two-story structure designed to look like the famous ocean liner. Built in half-scale to the original ship, this is the largest permanent venue of its kind in the world. Designers built this structure in a pool, which gives visitors the illusion of being on the ship, adrift at sea. To discover what it must have been like to travel as one of the original passengers of the ill-fated ship in 1912, take a self-guided tour of the venue. As you explore the replica, you can see over 400 artifacts spread over 20 galleries, chronicling the stories of several passengers and crew members. A visit to Titanic Museum Attraction represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Pigeon Forge route builder site to plot your vacation.

  • What a fantastic museum! The quality of the displays and the in depth information was amazing. I particularly enjoyed all the stories about specific people - what brought them to the ship, where they came from and what they did. Everyone receives a card with a name and story of someone as you enter. At the end of the museum, you can see if they’re on the survivors list. Throughout the exhibit you leave more and more stories. Also, they point out how life was different back then - the average height was shorter, most people didn’t know how to swim and if you weren’t in first class you used a shared bathroom. Things to know before you go.... I recommend buying your ticket over the phone because it’s only $22. They’re the same price online, but they add a $2 processing fee per ticket. In person at the museum is $29. When you call, be prepared to choose a time slot. Plan on spending at least two hours there. It will fly by! There’s so much to see and hear. Every room has a costumed employee who is there to share their wealth of information. Each one I talked with was very well spoken and extremely knowledgeable. They tell you that you can arrive any time during the hour of your time slot. We chose 4p and were told to arrive between 4-5p. Instead, we arrived about ten minutes til 4p. And I’m glad we did! After you show your ticket, you join a line outside. On the hour they allowed one large group in and have a welcome speech. After which, they officially scan your ticket. Your ticket price includes the audio tour. It’s very easy to use and provides just the right amount of information. Instead of talking forever, it shares informant tidbits and then draws your attention to certain displays or guides so that you can interact at your own pace and learn more. This is great for children! Children receive information about a child passenger and they have their own audio and displays. We went on Saturday at 4p and it was decently crowded, but not so bad that we couldn’t enjoy the exhibits. Definitely worth the $22 ticket price! We’d even love to go back and see everything a second time. Check it out!
  • This was a great experience! If you like the history of the Titanic or love the movie, your in for a awesome time, myself and family had this on our first thing to do on our vacation. When you arrive they take small groups first let them get started and then bring the next so everyone can enjoy looking without being crowded or rushed, your given one of the a piece of paper with one of the original people on the Titanic at the end of the tour you learn if you survived or not, it was fun 😆 They have such realistic set ups of the "Unsinkable Titanic " one exhibit was the actual temperature that night you go in and it has a large exhibit of water that you can put your hand in to feel how cold the water was while being in the cold air , the background is the Theme song for the movie as well as the history of what's in the room your seeing at the time. There is so many things to look at and interactive booths even for younger children to see and do, a nice surprise is to meet the Captain in his helm, with a nice greeting and some history, after the tour in the gift shop you'll see a huge cardboard picture of him with a book he wrote and find out he's the owner of this attraction, I definitely want to go back because there's so much to see and do, I could see things I missed and exhibits I really found so interesting!. So I highly recommend this to be on your top things to do, you will enjoy it as much as we did!! ⛲🛳
  • Amazing! The museum is amazing and the people working are dress as if they were on the ship. I ordered the birthday package for my daughter and she loved it. They gave her a pin at the first exhibit and then when we got to the grand staircase she was given a captains hat and sung happy birthday to by the staff. We saw the movie costumes and there was a lady dressed as Rose roaming the first class and she also sat down to play music, heard from the movie.
  • Very educational, great place to learn about all things Titanic related. People dressed up like the crew of the Titanicto do the tour. Being able to not only see all of the different aspects of the Titanic but also doing the interactive things was a huge bonus. From shoveling coal into the Fire, touching a huge Iceberg, feeling how cold the water was that night and even being able to see a 26-foot Lego version of the Titanic built by an 11 year old was absolutely amazing! This is a must for anybody even remotely interested in the Titanic.
  • Great place to visit. I really liked the self guided tour with the audio tool, but sometimes there were guides talking and by the time I got to that point the story was over, so sometimes there was too much going on to pay attention to everything. But definitely great history and good experience. Advise not to rush even if your group is moving quick, and ask them to repeat of you miss a story.
