In 1912, the Royal Mail Steamer (RMS) Titanic was touted as the world’s most celebrated luxury steamship. While sailing on calm seas under a clear sky, however, the ‘unsinkable’ ship met its doom on April 14th when it struck an iceberg that rose over fifty feet above the water and dove over 1,150 feet below the surface. In the early morning hours of April 15th, 1,503 souls perished and 706 passengers survived to tell of the terrifying event.
Preserving the Legacy
Two incredible Titanic Museum Attractions, located in Branson, Missouri and Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, preserve the legacy of the RMS Titanic and pay tribute to the lives of the crew and passengers.
The museum is a replica of the Titanic and visitors are captivated from the moment they enter! Each guest represents the name of an actual passenger and experiences the ship as that individual would have done. Explore the steam room, music gallery, grand staircase, discovery gallery, first class accommodations, third class living quarters, captain’s bridge, and more! The destiny of the ships passengers and crew is revealed in the memorial room.
Hands-on activities throughout the museum include touching an ice berg, shoveling coal, attempting to stand on a sinking ship, riding in a life boat, and submerging your hand into 28 degrees water!
Knowledgeable crew members are located throughout the ship to answer questions, tell stories, share experiences, and explain truth versus fiction concerning the real Titanic and the movie.
Observe over 400 precious artifacts exhibited at the museum including a deck chair, shaving equipment, dishes, and the only Bible that was saved, opened to John 6:16-24. These irreplaceable relics are valued at millions of dollars.
The Titanic Suite
Continue the adventure by staying in the Titanic Suite at the Stone Castle Hotel & Conference Center, located two minutes from the museum in Branson! An amazing wall mural portrays the passengers boarding the RMS Titanic and the room is filled with mementos such as a deck chair,
port hole mirrors, vintage luggage, and magazines of the day. The large jetted tub is a soothing and modern ending to a historic day. A yummy hot breakfast buffet, reminiscent of cruise ship life, is included.
The Tale Lives On
Although the tragedy of the Titanic was over 100 years ago, the tale lives on! James Cameron brought the harrowing story to life on the big screen twenty years ago and we continue to learn about this historical event. Watch history unfold at the Titanic Museum Attraction and Titanic Suite at the Stone Castle Hotel & Conference Center in Branson, Missouri!
John 6: 16-21
16 And when even was now come, his disciples went down unto the sea,
17 And entered into a ship, and went over the sea toward Capernaum. And it was now dark, and Jesus was not come to them.
18 And the sea arose by reason of a great wind that blew.
19 So when they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty furlongs, they see Jesus walking on the sea, and drawing nigh unto the ship: and they were afraid.
20 But he saith unto them, It is I; be not afraid.
21 Then they willingly received him into the ship: and immediately the ship was at the land whither they went.
