Titanic Museum Attraction
The “Titanic Museum Attraction” is high on Branson’s list of favorites! Celebrating ten years here, it’s not simply a museum; it’s an interactive attraction that shares the stories of those who were onboard for the famous ocean voyage that has fascinated the world for more than a century. Those who were lost, as well as those who survived, are memorialized in the displays, special events, and holiday celebrations held throughout the year. It’s a wonderful two hour, walk-through interactive experience for the whole family; entertaining and educational, it features everything from authentic artifacts to news coverage from the time of the disaster, to personal items from families and loved ones of those who were aboard “Titanic.” TripAdvisor has honored Branson’s “Titanic Museum Attraction” with the Award of Excellence for 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015, and visiting journalists applaud its genuine and heartfelt tribute to every passenger.
There’s a reason for every season to visit the “Titanic Museum Attraction,” but it’s especially enjoyable during the Christmas and Winter Celebration in November and December when the ship glows with twinkling lights and holiday cheer! There are also a variety of special displays and celebrations for 2016, including the chance to experience a truly spiritual treasure…the only bible to survive from the Titanic will be on display. And, Titanic-Branson celebrates the musicians who entertained passengers during their all-too-brief voyage; an area of the ship is adorned with wonderful images of each musician, and features a grand piano where talented visitors are encouraged to play a number for fellow guests! Also for 2016, the one artifact so deeply treasured, it’s difficult to believe that you can actually see it on display…the violin played by Wallace Hartley, Titanic’s bandmaster! This stunning piece, rescued from floating remains of the ship, was an engagement present to Hartley from his fiance’; a plaque with her message of love remains attached to the instrument’s tailpiece. The “Titanic Museum Attraction” has the world exclusive rights to publicly display this incredible piece of history; it’s an honor for Branson to have the violin here from March 7 through May 29, 2016.
No matter what time of year you decide to join the crew in their beautiful period attire aboard this lovingly recreated replica, you’re sure to leave with a new appreciation for arguably the most famous ship ever to sail the ocean! So come aboard Branson’s “Titanic Museum Attraction” and step back in time to this fascinating moment in history!
