The Titanic museum in Pigeon Forge opened in April of 2010 and has been a hit! Visitors from all over the United States have come to town and visited the Titanic Museum where they can learn all about the beautiful ship and it’s demise. The Titanic (near many of our Pigeon Forge cabins) reported hosting over 100,000 visitors during each of the
summer months, and has received accolades that include being named an East Tennessee Top Five Attraction by WBIR television station in Knoxville. Meeting expectations of fans everywhere, the Pigeon Forge Titanic Museum has announced that they will outdo the summer buzz by introducing something new for the winter. The Titanic Museum will have snow!
The Pigeon Forge Titanic Plans Christmas Decor
Owners of the Titanic in Pigeon Forge are going all out for the Christmas season. It is reported that $100,000 is being spent on Christmas decorations that will include trees, ornaments, and lights that will don both the interior and exterior of the Titanic Museum in Pigeon Forge. Another $150,000 will be spent on the snow machines that will begin blowing snow earlier than the typical Tennessee first snow. The Titanic Museum in Pigeon Forge’s Christmas in a Winter Wonderland begins on November 13, 2010 and will run through January 1, 2011.
The museum features artifacts from the actual Titanic ship including the only known existing lifejacket that was actually attached to a passenger of the Titanic ship (insured for 1million dollars.) The museum also features numerous pictures of the planning, building, and finished result of the Titanic ship as well as pictures from it’s maiden voyage. The museum also features interactive exhibits like a real iceberg, a small body of water that is as cold as the water was when the Titanic sank, and tilted ship decks that people can try to stand on. The exhibit also includes video and pictures from the discovery of the Titanic shipwreck.
