When the Titanic exhibit was traveling through Salt Lake City, Utah, I had the chance to go. It was such a tender experience for me. I love history, especially when it comes alive through artifacts. But this exhibit takes it to a new level with workers dressed in period clothing and an interactive component that kept my interest the whole way through. I didn’t get a chance to share that experience with Brent and we’ve talked several times of the lost opportunity.
Now, right in our own neck of the woods, there’s a Titanic Museum! The attraction is a half-sized replica of the Titanic containing a large collection of artifacts and exhibits rich in history from the early 1900s. This alone is worth our drive to visit the museum, but even better is that the Titanic Museum Attraction in Pigeon Forge gets all decked out for the Christmas holidays, in 1912 style.
You can win tickets for your family to share in the holiday celebrations at the Titanic Museum! They have three ways you can celebrate this holiday season in remembering those who were part of the Titanic.

Real Snow off the Bow
It will snow again this holiday season in Pigeon Forge; Titanic Museum Attraction guarantees it. Starting on Thanksgiving evening, Thursday, November 28th, it will snow – yes, REAL snow – at the Titanic. The snow is part of the museum’s “Christmas in a Winter Wonderland,” which is dedicated to honoring and celebrating the lives of the 2,208 passengers and crew of the Titanic.
Each night, Thanksgiving and every Saturday in December, the Titanic will produce real, falling snow off the bow of the ship. AND…the entire ship inside and out will be aglow with Christmas lights and decorations.
“Everything about our Christmas in a Winter Wonderland Celebration is aimed at giving our visitors and their families a unique, memorable holiday experience. A memory that will last forever – and isn’t that what Christmas is all about?”
