I’ve been hearing all about the Titanic Museum in Pigeon Forge and have driven past it many times. I’ve just never had the chance to visit. That will all change soon. Both of my kids (age 3 and 8) have recently become enthralled with the story of the Titanic. They actually have no idea we have an amazing museum to visit less than 30 minutes away. In a couple of weeks I’m going to surprise them with a visit to the museum. I can’t wait to see the looks on their faces! I’ll be coming back to post pictures and let you all know what we thought about the museum.

Newest Exhibit in Pigeon Forge:
Margaret “Unsinkable Molly” Brown
OPENS, Friday, January 17th, 2014

By the time Margaret Tobin Brown boarded Titanic at Cherbourg, France, she had already made a significant impact in the world. She and her daughter Helen, who was a student at the Sorbonne, had been traveling throughout Europe and were staying with the John Jacob Astor party in Cairo, Egypt, when Margaret received word that her first grandchild, Lawrence Palmer Brown, Jr., was ill. She decided to leave for New York immediately and boarded Titanic on April 10, 1912.

Want to know the rest of the story? Beginning Friday, January 17, 2014, Board the Titanic Museum Attraction in Pigeon Forge, TN and discover an entire gallery devoted to the “Unsinkable Molly Brown.”

** Note that the Museum is closed Jan 13-16 for scheduled maintenance and installation of their new Gallery

  15. My stepdaughters were in Pigeon Forge this past Summer and it is now on one of my list of places to visit. We visited a Titanic museum that looks just like that one in Branson, MO.

  16. Visiting museums is not always for learning. Its fun, picnic and leisure too. I prefer to visit museums when I visit a new place, you get to know the place, history and more at one place. thanks for sharing about Titanic.
