One of the best-loved attractions in Pigeon Forge is the Titanic Museum. Located on the main Parkway, the Titanic Museum is a two-story replica of the RMS Titanic, allowing you the chance to journey back to the year 1912, when the colossal ship made its way across the Atlantic. At the museum, you’ll get to touch a real iceberg and explore the hallways and cabins of the RMS Titanic. You’ll also get an exclusive view of more than 400 personal artifacts that have been salvaged from Titanic passengers—a collection worth more than $4.5 million!
