If you’re traveling to Pigeon Forge this fall, don’t miss one of its most exciting attractions—the Titanic Museum Attraction! Known as the world’s largest museum attraction, the Titanic Museum in Pigeon Forge is your ticket back to the year 1912, when passengers and crew members first boarded the RMS Titanic.
At the museum, you’ll have the chance to take a self-guided tour of replicated hallways and cabins of the Titanic, touch a real iceberg and feel the chill of 28-degree water, view more than 400 artifacts valued at over $4.5 million that came from the ship and Titanic passengers, and so much more! In addition to all these fascinating opportunities, the Titanic Museum Attraction has several events coming up this fall that you can enjoy during your visit to Pigeon Forge.
Titanic Bible on Display (Through December 2015)—Currently on display at the Titanic Museum Attraction is the only Bible saved from a Titanic passenger. The Bible belonged to a Knoxville, Tenn., passenger named Rev. Robert Bateman, and when the workers at the museum prepared to display it, the Bible fell open to John 6:16-21 (the passage where Jesus walks on the water!). You can see this amazing century-old Bible at the Titanic Museum in Pigeon Forge for a limited time. It’s great for families and church groups!
Titanic Honors Homeschool Students (September–October 2015)—Calling all honor students! Join the crew at the Titanic Museum Attraction from September through October for a hands-on learning experience like no other. Homeschool students will have a chance to learn life lessons as well as traditional academic lessons in history, science, geography, language arts, and social studies.
Titanic Teacher Academy “In Service” Program (Sept. 15, 2015)—Teachers looking for a unique way to get their In-Service credit hours can attend the Titanic Teacher Academy on September 15. You’ll get to spend the evening on board the RMS Titanic with other amazing teachers and explore how the museum connects to current curriculum. Each attendee will receive a certificate of attendance and a copy of the agenda to submit to their respective Board of Education.
Pastor Appreciation Days (Oct. 1–Oct. 31, 2015)—Religious leaders on board the Titanic played the unique role of providing comfort and hope to the other passengers during their bleakest moments. The Titanic Museum Attraction would like to honor the pastors who continue to provide comfort and hope to the public with their Pastor Appreciation Days all throughout the month of October. Pastors can enjoy complimentary entry into the museum by showing their current Clergy ID. They can also make reservations by calling (800) 381-7670.
3rd Annual “Night at the Titanic” Girls Sleepover (Oct. 2, 2015)—It’s a girls’ night to remember at the 3rd Annual “Night at the Titanic” Sleepover this October! The fun will begin on October 2 at 9 a.m., and girls can be picked up by their parents the following morning at 7 a.m. This is a chance for young girls to get together and experience the Titanic Museum Attraction in an exciting new way. They’ll explore the museum, hear Titanic passenger stories, and even find out if any ghosts might be lurking the museum’s halls! Tickets are $30 per person. Girls should bring their own sleeping bag and snacks. The museum will provide a commemorative patch, a PG rated movie, and all the fun that comes with exploring the Titanic after the lights are off!
