Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: Everyone knows the name Titanic! Everyone knows Titanic struck and iceberg! And everyone knows Titanic was lost! She sat at the bottom of the ocean for 75 years before they found her in 1985. A second expedition to the wreck site went out in 1986 and that expedition was co-led by the owner of this museum. The artifacts you see throughout the ship are REAL and valued at over $4 million dollars. You'll be able to touch a growing iceberg, experience the 28 degree water, try and steer the ship and pay tribute to the 2,208 passengers and crew that were on the Titanic. You will enter as a guest and leave as a Titanic Passenger!

We enjoyed the museum but found the audio guide to be lacking in info provided. It essentially just provided an overview of each room in the museum. We eventually just skipped the audio since you had to read everything anyway. Nice place to visit once but no need to ever return. Hint- go early and buy your tickets at the entrance from the kiosk so you have a printed ticket and you'll get in quicker. Otherwise you have to wait in line to have your on-line ticket purchase verified.

Overall the museum was enjoyable for the entire family. They have a good mix of artifacts, pictures, and displays. Enough to entertain youngsters. The only negative is trying to get in. During peak season, you should get your tickets a day in advance. We arrived at 10am only to find they were sold out until 1pm. To control crowds they only let 200 people in per hour. They open the doors allowing limited people every 7-10 minutes.

Wow ! Fantastic ! Wonderful! Definitely educational, emotional when you read these poor peoples stories. Learned so much. The artifacts were awesome. Reallly hate they don't let you take pictures inside museum but I understand why. Just sucks. Gift shop is reasonably priced as well.

Upon arrival you are met with the beautiful ship like building. The front of the building is connected to a fountain/pool where it looks like its moving through water and on the other side is the iceberg.

You are met with a cast member who hands you a listening device and hands you a "boarding pass" which on the back has the life of your person who was on board the titanic for the first and last time. Your job is to find artifacts of theirs and to also figure out if they survived or died. My husband and I were given people who perished in the wreckage. My daughter was given Millivena who was the last survivor (who passed away in 2009).

You are NOT allowed to take photos during the walk through until you get to the room that actually allows the photos. This is because everything you see is from the wreckage. Please please please be respectful. We witnessed a family taking photos and not listening to the instructions. When they got to the Grand Staircase they were immediately in trouble with the employees. The employee was NEVER rude. She just simply explained that taking photos would damage the artifacts. Which is the truth.

In the area where Captain Smith could command the ship you get to "stir" the ship. Then you go through a door and out onto the deck where you are met with a replica of the iceberg where you could touch it (it's cold and wet) and then go to the railing and touch what would be 28 degree water to give you a more better idea of what the people experienced. There's an interactive kids area and a gift shop.

This is a family favorite. We have been twice and my kids still ask to go back. Whenever you go they assign you a character which is somebody that was on the ship. It just enhances the experience. At the end you look to see if your character made it off the ship or not. The kids love this!
