Reasons for trip

We went to the Titanic Exhibition in Pigeon Forge – I did not particularly wish to go but my husband was keen so I went along. I was glad I did as it was far better than I had anticipated. There is a large model of part of the Titanic by the car park and admission is about £12 each. Your ticket is a facsimile of a boarding pass of an actual passenger and you have to wait until the boards at the end of the tour to see if you survived! (We both did.) The tour is a self guided one with your own audio guide; you are not allowed to take photographs inside.

The staff were dressed as members of the crew and are in each area to tell you about life on the ship. As well as actual artefacts and photos there are mock ups of the various grades of cabin and a full size replica of the grand staircase. The mock up of the bridge includes a large tank with water at the temperature when the ship went down. There are films of the launch and also of the undersea exploration to find the sunken ship. The items in the gift shop were Titanic themed but not overpriced. The website is www.titanicpigeonforge.com.
