Come see if you have the luck of the Irish this month at the Titanic Museum Attraction. What do we mean by that you say? Well, all month long the Titanic in Pigeon Forge will be celebrating Irish month by focusing on the people, culture, and history of the small European country that built the Titanic. The Titanic was built in Belfast, Ireland in 1911.
As is becoming custom each year, the Titanic Museum Attraction shines its light on Ireland in March, with Irish stories, music, and dancing. The Titanic takes St. Patrick’s Day and turns it into an entire month of green festivities.
Want to know what it was like for passengers boarding the ship, their lives, the times, then visit Pigeon Forge’s Titanic attraction. Guests can walk down the hallways, cabins, and even the Grand Staircase of the Titanic – just as it was when it set sail on its maiden, yet fateful voyage. Want to know what that iceberg really felt like? You can. You can even dip your hands into 28 degree water and view over 400 personal artifacts from Titanic passengers that were recovered from the ship. It’s a collection that’s valued at over $4.5 million. A few of the items are on display to the public for the first time ever.
The Titanic’s Memorial Room contains the over two thousand names of passengers and crew who were aboard the Titanic when it sank. As previously mentioned, you can view the Grand Staircase, the heart of the Titanic. The beautiful glass dome illuminates the room where many guests made their appearance on the Titanic.
The dates for Irish month are officially March 1-30. Guests can even explore their own Irish roots with genealogy experts. You never know, maybe even one of your relatives was on the Titanic.
