Branson's Titanic Museum is dedicated to the history of the infamous 'unsinkable' ship, the Titanic. With authentic replicas and over 400 artifacts from the ship and its passengers, this is about as close as you will get to the actual history of the tragedy. At the start of the tour, every individual becomes a “passenger” and is given the name of someone who was actually aboard the fated ship. Through the self-guided tour, patrons may discover the feel of 28-degree water, touch an iceberg, walk hallways built to scale and try to remain upright on tilting decks. You may marvel at the one million dollar exact replica of the Grand Staircase designed from the original plans and walk the stairs as the passengers did back in 1912. At the end of the tour, you have the chance to find your passenger’s name on the memorial to see if they survived the wreck.
Special plans exist for religious groups to ensure an educational and eye-opening experience with religious significance. The museum can be reserved for weddings if you desire to be married by the “captain” standing atop the Grand Staircase with the ship’s crew and your families in attendance. Gorgeous plans and wedding tips are available as well as past photos for inspiration. This is also a beautiful venue for your child to celebrate his or her birthday with options for princesses (girls) or captains (boys) with the entire crew turning out to celebrate alongside you. Corporate events such as Christmas parties or board meetings are another welcome reservation and your group is sure to be treated like honored “passengers.”
The Titanic Museum is not just a simple museum with artifacts locked behind glass cases but an interactive experience of discovery and an institution where a sunken history is resurrected. Whether you and your group are curious to walk the same halls that now lie at the bottom of the ocean or celebrate a vow renewal or anniversary, the Titanic Museum is a grand treasure to visit.
