The Titanic Museum Pigeon Forge-Our Trip

We recently had the chance to visit The Titanic Musuem in Pigeon Forge.

It was a great experience. You are greeted by crew members dressed in period costumes.  They are courteous, knowledgeable and very considerate of all the children.

The museum was impressive.  It houses over 400 artifacts from the ship and its passengers.  We got to tour a first class suite which was large and luxurious and look at a  third class room, which is small and cramped.   We even got to walk up the Grand Staircase! I appreciated how hard the museum strives to tell the stories of the people aboard.

The boys favorites parts were touching a real iceberg and putting their hands in the 28 degree water. The also loved the Tot-Tanic room which is made especially for young kids. They got to steer the ship to avoid the iceberg, send SOS signals, climb the inclined ship decks, sit in a life boat and a lot more.

This was our second visit to the museum and it was definitely my favorite. THE HUSBAND and I  really enjoyed our first visit, but I  left wishing we could have gone through twice. Once with the boys (because they had so much fun) and once with just THE HUSBAND. That way we could read everything and spend time looking at the vast amount of artifacts.

What made this trip more enjoyable?

The self-guided audio tour. They now offer  devices with key pads to wear around your neck. There are signs with numbers throughout the museum indicating “stops” on the Audio Tour. You press the corresponding number into the keypad of your player and hold it up to your ear.

There is an adult version and a youth version of the audio tour.  The adult version gives more facts and plays interviews with actual Titanic survivors.  The youth version tells more of a story and has listeners look around rooms for certain objects. The boys loved the audio tour. They both were quick to learn how to use the devices, got excited when they saw their numbers and liked to hear “the story”. It kept them interested and engaged. It was so fun to watch them and it gave me more time to look and read!

Overall the experience was fantastic. There was this sense of awe in every room you walked in to. The photo gallery of photos taken by Father Browne (a survivor of the ship who got off at an earlier stop),  the gallery full of dinnerware and evening wear and the Titanic Memorial room, they all brought the story to life in a way that was amazing.

If you are interested in going you can save a little bit by ordering your tickets online. If you are a family of four ordering the family pass will save you a little more than $7.50 off of the price of your tickets. Also,if you text ICEBERG to 62447, you can receive a discount in the gift shop.

**Note we were given free admission to the museum but the views and opinions are entirely mine.
