If you’re a fan of the movie and all of the history that IS the Titanic, then you MUST go when you get a chance. I’ve always been a fan of Titanic The Movie and have been to many seminars and exhibits for it. You’ll feel many emotions, all rolled up into this one experience.
Inside this museum, is a replica of the inside of this beautiful ship, the clothing of the guests, and an opportunity to experience just how cold the water was where these pour souls perished.
Each guest entering the ship will receive a boarding pass of an actual Titanic passenger or crew. Upon arriving at the Titanic Museum, we were greeted by the crew-members who were dressed to the nines. Feel their spirit presence in the galleries where over 400 personal and private artifacts are on display. Many are on display for the first time in the world. This collection is valued at over four and a half million dollars. This is a self-guided tour. Discover your passenger or crew’s fate in the Titanic Memorial Room where 2,208 names line this historic wall. As visitors touch a real iceberg, walk the Grand Staircase and third class hallways, reach their hands into 28-degree water, and try to stand on the sloping decks, they learn what it was like on the RMS Titanic by experiencing it first-hand.
You have no idea until you’re standing right there, at the foot of the Grand Staircase. It takes your breath away! And you will never guess what the floors are made out of?!?! The answer is linoleum.
At the beginning of the tour, you’re each given a passenger card with the history of the person. At the end of the tour, you’ll come to the Memorial Room where you can find your fate on the wall. We all passed away except my three year old daughter who was a first class woman from Canada. The percentage of people that made it and didn’t is very interesting. Those of the crew : 212 people meaning only 24%. Third class 181 people meaning 26% survived. Second class 118 people Meaning 42% survived. First class 201 people 62% survived. There were over 2,200 people on board.
The kids really enjoyed putting coal into the fire. Our favorite interaction was the iceberg and being able to lean over the boat and touch the 28 degree water!
When you get to the end of the exhibit. You find a HUGE LEGO replica of the titanic that was built by a ten year old autistic boy! HOW AMAZING!
This was a very neat museum!

Disclosure: I received free tickets to the Titanic Museum in exchange for our review. However, all opinions are 100% my own and honest, as always. #titanic #familyvacation #vacation #momoffive #corrallingthecampbells #gatlinburg #pigeonforge
