This attraction in Branson is definitely a place to visit if you are an adult or have middle to older age children. We arrived around 9:45 which was a little after it opened. There was a small group at front entrance. Employees were excellent, giving us instructions, boarding passes and leading us into the inside entrance. When inside you present your ticket or purchase your ticket. Each person receives a 'boarding pass' as a real passenger or crew who were actually on the fated Titanic voyage. The pass has a name and some bio on the person and why they were onboard. The entire museum is a self guided tour/go at your own pace which was wonderful! You pick up a handset on a neck cord to wear as you go through each display/room. The museum only allows a certain number of people at a time, which is nice and spaces out the crowds. There are number marked spots by different objects or displays and you dial in the corresponding number and listen as you would a telephone to a recorded voice. The system worked great and the information was very detailed and interesting! We spent about 2.5 hours viewing MANY varied displays, photos, artifacts, actual size grand staircase, steering the ship captain's wheel, seeing rooms of the passengers, clothing, belongings, angles of the deck, models of the ship, menus, equipment/engines used, how and why it sank...and so much more! The last room was dedicated to the search for the remains of the Titanic. There were little video presentations throughout along with many hands on displays. Towards the end of the tour there was an alphabetical list of survivors and perished passengers and crew on the wall. You check your personal boarding pass to see if 'your' person survived or perished. The 'boarding pass'/card is yours to keep as a souvenir of your visit. The entire museum was very professionally and respectfully assembled to give credit and a personalized glimpse into the crew, musicians who went down with the ship along with the many men, women and children. Many stories of families were depicted along with an entire room dedicated to the orchestra members who played until their death as the Titanic sank. This museum tour started out as a quiet, somber tour for us, as a few families with very young children passed us by and we were alone for while. Towards the end, the groups ahead and I suppose behind us began to create a more crowded, and unfortunately, more noisy atmosphere, as we tried to remain focused and absorbed in the overwhelming tragedy that had occurred aboard the Titanic. A VERY educational and excellent learning opportunity for adults and young adults interested in the true Titanic story. There was one point toward the end of the museum when we were pulled aside by a very friendly photographer and positioned to take a photo in which they gave us a card to view the photo with option to purchase it in the gift shop. I believe you could've said 'no' to this person if you chose. The gift shop was at the exit of the tour right after you deposited your corded handset. There were some nice souvenirs if you are looking for them. We dealt with a courteous cashier. Restrooms are also located in this area. When we exited the museum, the parking lot was packed full, so I would suggest going to this attraction first thing in the morning for a less crowded atmosphere. Also, there is NO PHOTOGRAPHY allowed anywhere in the building after you enter through the doors.
Words cannot describe how amazing the Titanic Museum is. There is so many artifacts from the actual Titanic in here that I coukd stay and look at them for days! I have always been fascinated by the history behind Titanic so coming here was a must for me. You will not want to miss out on this amazing piece of history!
I visited the Titanic Museum along with my family, with a child 8 years old, and my brothers family, with children 9 and 12. We enjoyed it very much, as we all enjoy history quite a lot. Be certain, however, that this is a museum not an attraction per se. You are assigned a name and a little history about yourself and then at the end you find out if you survived the disaster or not... That was pretty cool. Overall, I recommend it highly, but don't know why anyone would go twice.
We waited outside for approximately 30 minutes in 100 degee heat to get inside. It was very crowded inside as well. Lots of interesting facts. The cold water that kids can put their hands in to feel the temperature the passengers felt was full of bleach...too much bleach. The staircase was beautiful. This was a one time excursion however. Now I've seen it I won't go back.
