24 Christmas Trees, Holiday lights, and a Fantasy Princess
November 11th, 2013
There are 24 trees on display throughout the ship, along with thousands of glittering holiday lights! Here is what else you can expect on your tour of the Titanic Museum Attraction during November and December 2013.
1. Walk the Grand Staircase - Built from original blue prints – for the first time you are able to walk the Grand Staircase. It cost this museum over one million dollars to build this most famous staircase – Titanic’s hand-crafted, wooden inlayed, Grand Staircase, which led First Class passengers into the heart of shipboard society where the rich and richer mingled before dinner.
Titanic Review from a Child's Perspective

I am going to let MaKenna write this post too. She absolutely adores Titanic and all it is. She has watched the movie with me a few times (I forwarded through the naughty moments with Kate Winslet and Leo), and we have several picture books of the Titanic (I am a fan too), and I have had Polar the Titanic Bear book since before I even had kids. So she has had a lot of exposure to it. The boys on the other hand? Yeah...its cool...but whatever, is their response. :-) So....without further ado...I give you...MAKENNA!

How Many Dogs Were Aboard The Titanic?
July 24th, 2013
Last week my family traveled to Branson, Missouri for a few much needed days away. While we were there, we visit the Titanic Museum Attraction, where we met Molly and Carter.
Molly and Carter are Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, and they are the museum’s official mascots. They pay tribute to the 10 dogs that were aboard the Titanic when it sank on its maiden voyage in 1912. Only 3 dogs survived – a Pekingese and 2 Pomeranians.

Free Titantic education guide: Learn at home and away at the Titantic Musuem
March 27th, 2013
We had an amazing time at the Titanic Museum in Branson. We spent several hours there enjoying the interactive exhibits, beautiful recreations and learning more about the stories behind the people on board. It is an amazing place for both children and kids, and honestly one of our favorite attractions while in Branson, MO with the grandparents during spring break.
But what we didn’t know until we got home was that the Titanic Museum also offers a free education guide online! Using the Titanic Guide you can study the topics of language arts and social studies, science, geography, math, and religion. There is even a special section for homeschooling as well as resources for teachers and parents. Each one of them offers facts and figures as well as prompts to help you make learning these topics using the Titantic as a base. For specific learning activities

Titanic Museum, Branson MO: One titanic adventure for the whole family
March 12th, 2013
Each year for Spring Break we join my parents for a family vacation. One year it was Orlando, another year it was Myrtle Beach. This year they loaded up their car in Ohio and we loaded up ours in Texax to split the difference between our two locations and headed out to Branson, MO. We had a top 10 list of attractions we wanted to experience and the Titanic Museum was on that list. We headed there our first day there and I’m so glad we didn’t wait until later on in the week when we may have been too tired to truly enjoy all that this attraction has to offer.
Titanic Museum in Branson Missouri: An Epic Experience
March 11th, 2013
The Titanic Museum in Branson is one of two such museums (the other is in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee) that honor the Titanic and its passengers and crew. The museum is shaped like a replica of the Titanic, with the outside designed to look like the actual ship, complete with a make- believe iceberg touching the ship and a pond area with a fountain in front, to provide the appearance of water parting to each side as the nose of ship traversed the frigid Atlantic waters.
Branson Offers Plenty of Winter Fun
January 17th, 2013
I was very excited about visiting Titanic, a Missouri bucket-list item for me. Loaded with artifacts, documents and serving as a great repository for history, Titanic Museum Attraction more than lived up to my expectations. The personal stories are simultaneously heartwarming and gut-wrenching.
Although the artifacts here are many, one simple item struck me most. A passenger’s Waltham pocket watch that stopped at 2:35 – about 15 minutes after the Titanic broke apart and sank (2:20 a.m.). Looking at the timepiece made me think of how icy waters froze it after 15 minutes and sobered me with the realization its owner likely survived those frigid conditions only a few minutes longer.

Discover the Stories of the 133 Titanic Children
January 9th, 2013
The RMS Titanic sailed with 2,208 people on board – 133 of them were children. These were Titanic’s littlest heroes. What they saw, heard and felt from the moment they boarded the ship has been documented and visualized for the first time anywhere by the Titanic Museum Attractions in Branson, Missouri and Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. This year-long, exclusive exhibit is a celebration of The Children of Titanic whose bravery, innocence and faith can be an inspiration to us all.
Well, we got the special privilege of going back and visiting the Titanic in Branson again this last weekend. Because of the stomach bug going around in our family, it was only me and Adriana that got to go this time. We were, however able to make a girls day of it with meeting up with cousins from out of town. It was perfect because right now, during the month of December, its a "Princess" themed event at the Titanic, so it was perfect for a girls day.

T is for Titanic or Titaniac (Titanic+Maniac-Man)=Titaniac Which is a term of endearment for a Titanic lover like myself as well as thousands of others!! This past Saturday we got to go to the Titanic Attraction in Branson, Missouri and we spent a couple hours there! There were 8 of us in our party and we were greeted with the happiest and most helpful staff. Each staff member we came across had something new and exciting to tell us about the Titanic, the Titanic’s journey and it’s tragic ending. We no more than got into the door and I had goosebumps because it was such a surreal setting.

Meet the Titanic Fantasy Princess!
December 3rd, 2012
The Titanic Fantasy Princess is the newest addition to Titanic's Winter Wonderland. She arrived just in time to provide a magical experience for children of all ages. Beautifully adorned in a sparkling gown (not to mentions sparkly shoes!) she greets the children, hears their wishes and invites little princesses to take the princess oath and pose for a photo.

Titanic Museum - Branson Missouri
October 29th, 2012
This year marks 100 years since the ill-fated voyage of the Titanic. In April 1914 the White Star Line offered passengers a chance to travel in luxury aboard the largest, unsinkable ship in the world. Deemed as the safest way to travel, Titanic was host to some of the richest people of the time. Also on board were hundreds of poor immigrants anxious to start a new life in America. When in the dark night of April 14, 1914 Titanic strikes an iceberg, the unthinkable happens... The safest ship, the unsinkable Titanic begins her slow decent to the bottom of the freezing ocean. A tragic tale familiar to everyone...

Titanic Attraction Branson, MO Review
August 20th, 2012
While on vacation on our must do’s for my daughter, sister’s and I was the Titanic Attraction in Branson, MO. So the three sister’s took off with a 14 year old-Elizabeth, Ivy a 7 year old girl, Sage-4 year old girl, a 2 year old girl, Olivia. We arrived at the Titanic Attraction in Branson, MO and the first thing out of Sage’s mouth was, “Oh my goodness, that’s big.”. Ivy the 7 year old didn’t say anything, but her face said it all. She was impressed with the size as well, and quickly pointed out it was shaped like a ship.

100 years ago my Great Aunt Viola was born. That same year the Titanic sank. That year was memorable to me as a child because she was so special to me. My husband has been fascinated with the history of the Titanic since before we met, and because of his interest my interest has grown even more. Several years ago we had the opportunity to go to the Titanic Museum Attraction in Branson, Missouri. My in-laws joined me, my husband, and our kids as we embarked on our own Titanic adventure.

With 2012 being the 100 year anniversary of the fateful maiden voyage of Titanic the experience is one not to be missed. My family and I arrived at our boarding time and were given audio playback devices and a boarding pass with the information of an actual Titanic passenger. We were told we would be able to learn the fate of our passenger during our time on board. I was a 1st Class Passenger, while my husband was in the 3rd Class as was our daughter.
T is for Titanic Museum
July 17th, 2012
Being several hundred miles from the nearest body of seawater and with the recent triple-digit temperatures, the last thing you'd expect to see on a road trip is an iceburg with a towering ocean liner close behind. Surprised unless you're traveling through Branson, MO and then you're not only NOT surprised, but you've probably reached your destination. We had seen the majestic ship rising about Highway 76 on our last trip but didn't have time to fit it in our schedule. This time it would be a highlight on our trip--at least for my husband and me.
A Titanic Review!
June 12th, 2012
This week our family was visiting Branson, Mo. We do this every year with my husband’s entire family; and for the last several years we have wanted to visit one particular attraction. As a homeschool family we love history, and when we can see, touch, or feel that history it’s even better. History comes alive when you can bring it into your everyday life. This exhibit does just that. I am still crazy excited about it! I want to go again. Right now!
Step Back in Time with The Titanic
June 10th, 2012
When you first arrive, okay when you are down the block you see the ship. It is beautiful. But, when you pull up in the parking lot you notice the entrance. The front of the ship is in water with a flame at the edge. There is a plaque dedicated to all who lost their lives that fateful day.

Not only do they have great artifacts and information, but their staff/crew was so friendly and helpful. I HAVE to point out the crew members here. They were awesome! When we stepped in line to climb aboard the museum, there were two crew members greeting us with a smile and handing us a boarding pass and an audio remote control, giving us simplistic directions and showing us the way in.

Who wouldn't want to go and see what its all about. Its an AMAZING museum. Filled with so many stories and testimonies of the passengers on board. I LOVED how they valued each passenger. They don't look at them as a number, they look at them as a human life, that was on board one of the most magnificent boats in history.
Titanic – Branson, MO
April 21st, 2012
It was our privilege to get to visit the Titanic! It was an awesome experience!!!! We were welcomed at the gate just as if we were on the actual cruise. As we went in to the ticket area we were given these neat remotes that you type numbers that they have posted into the remote and you will hear interesting stories of real people that were on the titanic and other information that isn’t posted in the museum. Our 9 yr old, handicapped son found this one of the best museums he has ever been in.

TITANIC EXPEDITION - 100 Year Memorial
April 3rd, 2012
I have traced my interest in "all things Titanic" to the old television series called "Sea Hunt", starring Lloyd bridges, that was popular in the 1960's. That television show influenced my goal of learning to scuba dive. My fascination with earning "badges", prompted me to take a specialty scuba diving course called "Wreck Diver". While taking the PADI Wreck Diver course, there was quite a lot of discussion about the Titanic ship wreck, and probably each of us amateur divers imagined ourselves as explorers of this historical artifact buried deep in the ocean.

Journeying on the Titanic
My family didn’t know what to expect when we drove up to the Titanic Attraction in Branson, Missouri. The museum itself looks like the hull of the Titanic from the road. It was pretty strange to see the large smoke stacks from the distance. We were greeted by a stewardess who handed us boarding tickets. On each of the tickets was a name of a passenger. We’d know by the end of the journey through the museum if we survived or not. A shiver ran down my spine as I looked at my family. Was it possible one of us wouldn’t make it?

The Titanic Museum - A Must See!
February 8th, 2012
I have always been fascinated by the story of the Titanic. Long before the blockbuster movie caused a media craze and broke records, I sat captivated by documentaries explaining just what made that "unsinkable ship" sink. In the fifth grade, my favorite book was about a boy and a girl who traveled back in time and found themselves aboard the RMS Titanic on the very day that it would hit the infamous iceberg and sink to the bottom of the ocean. I longed to know more about what happened during the voyage, who the people were, where they were from, and how the lucky managed to escape what should have been certain death.
Branson: All Aboard The Titanic! (The Museum, That Is!)
December 21st 2011
Jeff and I love museums! So much so that during our week in Branson we toured more museums than we saw shows! One of the museums was right down the road from our resort and was probably the most impressive one of all – The Titanic Museum. Before we went into the museum, I knew the following about the Titanic.
I don’t know what you think of when you think of Branson, but if you’re anything like me, you’d expect a museum for country music more than a world-class museum for the Titanic. But that’s exactly what’s there…and it was my favorite stop on our t7rip to Branson.
My week in Branson: THE GOOD! (Part 1)
August 11th, 2011
Now that I’ve gotten the “bad and ugly” out of my system, I’m ready to tell you about the good! Our first stop (before our van broke down) was the Titanic Museum. It is located on the strip downtown, so it is really convenient to walk to from most hotels. When you arrive, you are greeted by very friendly museum staff – all dressed as they would’ve been on the Titanic back in 1912. You are handed a boarding pass with the name and a short biography of the passenger you are going to be for this journey. They also give you a little remote control device that you wear around your neck. When you approach the displays, you press a corresponding number and you get to hear the captain talk about it.
Congratulations to Jennifer Pinson Evans - Winner of our Spring Break Online Scavenger Hunt Contest!

I live in a wonderful place filled with wonderful things to do and see, one of these happens to be the Titanic Museum Attraction, if you have been so lucky to visit Branson, I doubt you missed it. It is an amazing sight from the outside alone, towering 100 feet above the famous 76 strip.
Titanic Branson Contest & My Entry
March 8th, 2011
Titanic has always been such an interesting part of history for me. When we went to Branson I knew I just had to go to the Titanic Attraction in Branson, MO. I was definitely not disappointed. To see articles, letters and other things from the trip itself or people somehow connected to the trip was just amazing. When I heard they were having a contest I knew I had to enter it and hope somehow to win and be able to find a way to get there.

Have you visited the Titanic in Branson?
It's really kid-friendly! (And history buff dads will like it too.) We all know there's a LOT to do in Branson. But some attractions that seem really promising from the outside turn out to be duds on the inside, then you have bored kids and annoyed moms and dads trying to get their money's worth without feeling like they wasted their time. The Titanic Museum was definitely NOT one of those attractions.
Even though I just went through the museum less than a week ago I am already making plans to visit again with my kids this fall and I know my kids, (my 6 year old son especially) will love to see the Titanic Museum!
One museum I've always wanted to go to is the Titanic Museum in Branson. This Missouri attraction has been around for several years now, but just seems so out of the way, so I never even considered visiting. Titanic Pigeon Forge just opened, however, and Tennessee is only an 8-hour road trip away. A much more reasonable distance, if you ask me! Maybe we can keep going and visit Graceland as well. I've always wanted to go there, too!
Our first stop of the day for Saturday was the Titanic Museum! I loved the movie Titanic and I’ve seen a few shows on Discovery about what happened that awful night. I was very impressed when we visited. We came in time to see the new dogs of the Titanic. This is to remember ALL the dogs that were on the ship. They were so cute, and I didn’t get pictures but again I am able to grab from the site so photo’s will be in the full review of the Titanic Museum.
