The excitement about the Titanic museum in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee has been building for quite some time. The museum in Pigeon Forge was once covered in a large tarp that caused even more excitement and a little bit of intrigue over what the Titanic museum would be like. Now, only days away from the grand opening, many in Pigeon Forge can hardly contain their excitement.
To top off the general enthusiasm over the opening of the new Titanic ship that sits right off of the main road that links Sevierville, to Pigeon Forge, to Gatlinburg, Regis Philbin himself is coming to help christen the new ship.
The grand opening event on April 8th, 2010 will feature a guest appearance by Regis Philbin. There will also be special activities outside at the BOW of the Titanic ship for everyone to enjoy.
The Titanic ship in Pigeon Forge is a three story building that was built to be half-scale of what the original Titanic was.
