Attraction details
Owner description: Everyone knows the name Titanic! Everyone knows Titanic struck an iceberg! And everyone knows Titanic was lost! She sat at the bottom of the ocean for 75 years before they found her in 1985. A second expedition to the wreck site went out in 1986 and that expedition was co-led by the owner of this museum. The artifacts you see throughout the ship are REAL and valued at over $4 million dollars. You'll be able to touch a growing iceberg, experience the 28 degree water, try and steer the ship and pay tribute to the 2,208 passengers and crew that were on the Titanic. You will enter as a guest and leave as a Titanic Passenger!

“Fantastic!”

Even my teen boys liked this attraction! It is just a taste of whatever the Titanic had, but they way the story is told is fabulous. We loved it! We'll go again, for sure!

“Fascinating look at the ship's passengers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2012

I expected the Titanic museum's exhibits to focus mainly on the ship itself, from its construction to its sinking, with maybe a few artifacts like menus or other items used on the ship. All of that is included in depth in the museum. What I didn't expect is the concentration on the ship's passengers, which adds a fascinating human element to the museum.

Upon entering the museum you receive a boarding pass with information on one of the ship's passengers, as well as an audio tour device that allows you to listen to additional information about many of the exhibits. My boarding pass was for Eva Hart, a 7-year old passenger who survived. I heard her actual voice, as an adult, relating Titanic stories a couple of times on the audio tour. You’ll find artifacts and histories of many of the passengers, describing what the voyage was like for first class, second class and third class passengers, as well as crew members. You can find the outcome of your boarding card passenger toward the end of the tour, where a memorial wall lists the names of all of the ship’s passengers and whether they survived or perished. There is also a survivor wall that tells what they went on to do in life afterward. It seems like so long ago that the tragedy occurred, but many of the survivors lived into the 1970’s. The last survivor, who was an infant at the time of the ship’s sinking, lived into the 1990’s.

Since last summer, museum visitors have had a chance to share in the 100th anniversary of the Titanic’s sinking coming up this spring. Each passenger is invited to drop a rose petal into a container that will be emptied onto the ocean in the exact spot that the ship sank on the anniversary date this April.

The older children in the museum seemed very interested, but young children would be easily bored, since the only interactive activities throughout most of the museum, besides the audio device, are trivia questions. Toward the end of the tour, there is an interactive room where you can feel how cold the water was or walk up the slant of the ship deck at various stages of its sinking.

I was there on a Saturday afternoon in February during Branson’s slow season, and it was busy, so I imagine summer really brings in the crowds. If you go in the summer, I would suggest a weekday, as soon as they open in the morning.

“Very educational”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2012

It looks like a replica of the Titanic from the outside. Then inside it looks like the inside of the Titanic with the big spiral staircase. It's very educational to go see this and learn more about the passengers and what they went through when the ship sank.
