The Titanic Museum Attraction is a museum located in Branson, Missouri on 76 Country Boulevard. It is one of two Titanic-themed museums owned by John Joslyn (who headed a 1987 expedition to Titanic's final resting place); the other is located in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
The two-story museum, opened in 2006, is shaped like the Titanic itself, but built half-scale to the original. It is anchored in water to create the illusion of the Titanic at sea. The museum holds 400 pre-discovery artifacts in 20 galleries.
The 90-minute, self-guided tour is designed to give guests the sensation of being an original passenger on Titanic’s 1912 maiden voyage. As guests step through the artificial iceberg into the museum, they are given a passenger boarding ticket, featuring the name of an actual Titanic passenger and the class on which the passenger traveled. During the tour guests learn the individual stories of several passengers. At the end of the tour, in the Titanic Memorial Room, the guest will find out whether his/her ticketed passenger survived or perished.
