My daughters and I are big fans of the movie “Titanic,” so of course when our family ended up renting a cabin in the mountains just outside of Pigeon Forge this summer, we had to visit the Titanic Museum. I ordered tickets by phone, and was able to purchase a family pass, which was a great price deal for a family of 5. Upon arrival at our scheduled “boarding time,” we were handed a boarding pass and took turns sharing our new passenger identities. We varied from 1st and 2nd class passengers to a quartermaster who was behind the wheel when the iceberg was spotted on that fateful night. The museum had over 20 galleries, with many interactive exhibits to help tell the story. Some of the highlights included:
By the end of the tour, we were all curious to find out the fate of our passenger. Unfortunately, my husband, who was a 2nd class passenger from England, did not survive the journey. It was definitely an eye-opening experience and one which I would highly recommend.
