When visitors enter the Titanic Museum, which is built to look like the actual ship, they're given a boarding pass with a real Titanic passenger's name on it. At the end of the self-guided tour – which winds through a recreated grand staircase and past more than 400 artifacts preserved from the sunken vessel – visitors see if the passenger on their ticket survived the infamous sinking.
Recent visitors said the experience, though a bit pricey, was mostly worth the hefty admission fee. Parents, in particular, said their kids enjoyed the various interactive experiences. Museumgoers can touch a real iceberg, plunge their hands into 28-degree water (the temperature of the ocean on that fateful night) and try to stand on the sloping decks, which mimic the incline of the ship as it was sinking.
The Titanic Museum sits about 5 miles southeast of Silver Dollar City. General admission costs $28, but there are discounted tickets for kids and families. You can also save a few bucks on adult tickets by purchasing them in advance online. The museum usually opens at 9 or 10 a.m., but closing hours vary, so travelers should check the detailed calendar on the website before making plans.
