I have no idea why this museum is in eastern Tennessee, but I can’t imagine a better Titanic Museum exists. It’s huge and parts of it are interactive. You can put your hands in freezing water and walk up the angled boat floor. The staff are dressed in period clothes and the different parts of the museum are made to look like the sections of the ship. There’s an audio tour that comes with a version for kids as well as adults. Although I took an 11 year old and she found a lot of it boring. As an adult who is usually bored by historical museums (and hates the Titanic movie), I was blown away. A little expensive, but better than 90% of the other tourist traps in the area. The only thing I didn’t really like is the gift shop because the way they were monetizing this tragedy comes off a little gross.
This place is a blast. Took my 11-year-old little cousin and we spent a couple hours here. They’ve got your pretty typical kids’ fun science experiments like giant bubble wands and electricity gloves, but then they’ve got some stuff that even I at 23 was enjoying as much as her like the 4D ride down the Great Wall of China or the roller coaster simulation that actually flips you upside down. They also had a ropes course and a round of laser tag included in our admission price. We got there right at 10 when they opened and around noon it started to get so packed you could hardly breathe so I knocked a star for that because I really hate crowds. It was also a little pricey, but it’s a great mix of kid and adult entertainment if you can swing the ticket prices.
Adorable cabins in a gated area with everything you could need including private hot tub, screened porch, jacuzzi tub, game tables, televisions in every room, multiple parking spots, and full kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, cookware. Property also has gym, arcade, spa, trails and more. Lots of things to do in the area, although I’d probably come back in the summer next time. But there was even a little Christmas tree in our cabin!
So cute! Worth taking a walk through.
