Titanic Museum Attraction#6 in Best Things To Do in Pigeon Forge
Price & Hours
The world's largest Titanic museum is located in Pigeon Forge and pays tribute to the ship, its passengers and the crew. Visitors can experience what it was like to walk through the halls, parlors and staterooms of the famous luxury liner, and view the 400-plus artifacts on display that were recovered from the ship and its passengers. Upon entry, each person receives a boarding pass of someone who was a passenger or crew member on the Titanic. Other things to see and experience include the grand staircase replica and the sloped decks of the ship; you can also touch an iceberg and feel the frigid water to envision what it might have been like in the ocean on that fateful day.
Described as educational, fascinating and well done, the Titanic Museum Attraction receives high marks from recent visitors. Many commented on how beautiful the museum is and how moving it is to experience. Families with kids also were impressed with the interactive exhibits geared toward younger ones.
Located just north of central Pigeon Forge, the Titanic Museum Attraction sits near WonderWorks and Mountain Valley Vineyards. There's a free parking lot on-site. The museum is typically open daily from 9 a.m. to about 7, 8 or 9 p.m. (depending on the day; some days it may close earlier or later). Admission costs $27 for adults (13 and older) and $14 for kids ages 5 to 12. A family pass is also available for $95 and covers entry for two adults and up to four children 18 and younger.

As expected, Dollywood receives rave reviews from recent parkgoers, with many praising the number and quality of the rollercoasters (a surprise for some). Several patrons said the theme park was a bit bigger than they anticipated and recommend purchasing the two-day pass to ensure you have time to try most or all of the rides you want, in addition to exploring the craft shops and seeing shows.
