In Branson, Missouri, groups can experience what life was really like sailing on the RMS Titanic through a variety of hands-on, interactive exhibits. When entering the Titanic Museum Attraction, guests receive a boarding pass of an actual Titanic passenger or crew member.
“Groups will enter as guests and leave as a Titanic passenger,” said Mary Kellogg-Joslyn, president and co-owner. “When they take their voyage throughout the ship, they will find out the fate of their passenger or crew member. Also, in our music galley, we have a piano player and violin player who performs for our guests. We encourage our guests to play the piano … we are always honored to hear them perform.”
As the world’s largest Titanic Museum attraction, the Titanic Museum in Branson celebrates the ship, passengers and crew by telling stories of the world’s most famous luxury liner. Groups can examine over 400 artifacts from the ship and its passengers, sit in an actual size lifeboat, touch a real iceberg, walk the grand staircase and third-class hallways, feel 28-degree water, and even stand on the sloping decks.
The museum’s collection is valued at over $4.5 million, and in the Memorial Room, groups can see 2,208 names line the wall and discover the fate of their passenger or crew member from their boarding pass.
Group visits are customizable and can be booked up to a year in advance, and the museum also has as second location in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
“We have designed our various programs to fit the needs of each group,” Kellogg-Joslyn said. “For example, if we have a German tour group, our crew will give them specific information about the Germans aboard Titanic. Plus, at our Pigeon Forge location, we offer a special dining experience in our Private ‘Secret’ Dining Room — only available to groups of 35 or more.”
