Enjoy the Family-Friendly Drama of the Titanic Museum
The largest museum in the world that is dedicated to the Titanic, this amazing spot is one of the top-rated attractions in Pigeon Forge. Constructed in half-scale, you will still be amazed at the size of this incredible vessel. Its founder, John Joslyn, led the exploration of the Titanic after its discovery in 1985 and has dedicated his life to the liner.
In the middle of the ship is the Grand Staircase, built as an exact replica using the original plans. A beautiful glass dome illuminates wood carvings in oak and intricate ironwork. You may find yourself transported to the decadence of the 1910s as you imagine the guests parading down the stairs to dinner!
The museum contains more than 400 artefacts from the liner and its passengers, enough to fascinate a Titanic expert or just wow the kids. It even starts with a boarding pass of an actual passenger or crew member from the original passage. Where the visit really hits home, though, are the sloping decks from its fateful end and the 28-degree water of the iceberg next to the Titanic experience. The site even boasts the world’s largest Lego replica of the vessel!
