Titanic Branson Review
January 5th, 2015
I’ve been to Branson several times (mostly going to Silver Dollar City Theme Park when I was a kid), but had never been to the Titanic Museum, so we decided to check it out. It’s on the main strip (pretty much everything is on 76 Country Boulevard), and definitely grabs your attention as you drive down the street.
My 6 and 4-yr-old daughters were excited to go on “the big boat”. As soon as we got inside, they were able to feel an iceberg (a wall of ice), which they thought was really cool (no pun intended), and they asked to go back and feel it several times. My husband and I loved looking at all the artifacts from the Titanic. The most memorable to me was the life jacket worn by Madeleine Astor, the young wife of millionaire John Jacob Astor. My 4-yr-old’s favorite part was a tub of water that was 28 degrees, the same as the water at the time the Titanic sank. The museum even had a timer so you could see how long you could stand to hold your finger in the water.

Another must-see in Branson is the Titanic Museum. Housed in a half-scale replica of the Titanic, its smokestacks tower 100 feet above Highway 76. Upon their arrival, a white-gloved ship’s officer greets groups. The self-guided tour highlights more than 400 artifacts, among them a rare deck chair, a lifejacket and a first-class menu. Father Browne’s intriguing gallery of black-and-white photos displays the only known images taken on board.
Family Friendly Fun: The Titanic Museum!
November 6th, 2014
In September, we were fortunate enough to squeeze in a family vacation, despite the fact that my husband recently started a new job and has very little time available to take off of work. We live about 3 hours from Branson, Missouri, so it’s an easy choice of somewhere family friendly to go, that’s not a long trip for us.
We’ve been going to Branson for years and we always drive past the Titanic Museum, but never took the time to visit it. The kids kept begging though! To be honest, I was worried the younger kids wouldn’t like it and we have a lot of younger kids! This time, we decided we wanted to give it a try. To our delight, all the kids had a great time! They all came away LOVING it!
