History From the Sea
The Titanic Museum is a destination for all ages with hands-on learning. When you enter the museum, you are issued the passport of a person who was on the ship, and throughout the tour of more than four hundred original artifacts, you learn about that passenger. In the end, you find out whether he or she lived or died.
Mary Kellogg, co-owner of the museum, says, “It’s not a passive museum; it’s a celebration of the passenger.”
Mary says the idea of bringing the Titanic to Branson had been in the works for more than fifteen years before an opportunity presented itself to turn the dream into a reality. Throughout the year, the Titanic Museum hosts multiple special events, like the princess tea party that drew more than one thousand little girls and their moms over a two-day period.
The centennial of the RMS Titanic sinking is 2012, and the museum has been making plans to celebrate the event over the past decade.
To honor Titanic’s 100th year, the museum has added a new Rose Petal Memorial Tribute, new displays including a “Survivor’s Wall of Stories”, a new audio tour and interactive activities.
Tickets for the museum cost $22 for adults and $11.15 for ages 5-12. The museum also offers a family pass for $63 that includes 2 adults and up to 4 children ages 0-18.
