Our Visit to the Titanic Museum

By: Deener Matthews 

“Over the Christmas holidays, our family went over to Pigeon Forge to see the highly-touted Titanic.  It is a WOW!”.

Crowds are controlled, so that you can really see the items he has collected.  When you enter the museum, you are given a card with the name of a Titanic passenger.  It is not until you exit — a good hour or so later — that you find out whether your person survived.

We had the opportunity to meet John Joslyn, the man behind this magnificent creation just before we went in.

We learned that we can save traffic time by driving over from The Swag on I-40 to the Maryville, TN exit.  Titanic is on the near side of Pigeon Forge to I-40.  Actually, it is a museum that really immerses you in the dreadful event without horror, but definitely awe.

So, for our Swag guests who want a richly rewarding experience, Dan and I give it a heads-up.  I guess it would be best to go on non-holiday days, before school gets out. April, May, September and November would be excellent times to take a days drive over there.
