came to visit this past august. I had to call them to tell them I was running late due to hotel error crying on the phone...the girl was so sweet that she got me in touch with the 1st Officer and he extended my tickets to the next day since they had to stick with their protocols to be fair. completely understood and they were so nice about it I was just grateful they were going to extend. the hotel corrected their error to so the next day, we came back all excited!
the experience to see the violin and take pictures of it was a wonderful experience...I know pictures aren't allowed so before anyone goes "why her??" my family had purchased a package for this occassion. the violin was beautiful and I wish I remembered our tour guides name...she was amazing! when it came time to do the regular tour after visiting the violin, we were greeted by all the officers and maids going down the grand staircase...talk about awesome!!! felt like I John Jacob Astor walking down those stairs...if only I was a guy. I'm a girl, so realize...it was awesome!! :)
we came with a little one (going to be two soon) and can be a struggle sometimes when she was stuck in a car for 15 hours two days before. the tour guide was especially considerate of that and very sweet towards her which made me love her even more. when you treat my kid with kindness and understanding toward us, you've won me over times ten! :)
now the museum itself, well well well...where to begin! it couldn't have been better. she (tour guide i'm now in love with) was very knowledgeable and got us involved with the tour and the history of the ship. gotta love how you walk in and above you is a replica of a propellor! I want to ruin it for you, but I'd rather not. just know that if you have a love for interactive history, this is for you. I've loved the Titanic since I was in elementary school and this was a dream come true for me. only downside if that they are too far for me to work there myself.
I recommend liking them on Facebook & entering their contests. Or just to keep up with events. my husband, toddler, and I will be making the trek to Pigeon Forge Titanic Museum this January because the founder/co-owner of both museums and the gentleman that made 33 dives down to the ship...John Joslyn will be there for a dinner and personal tour. just an example of the kinds of things this museum puts on...I can't wait to visit the other one and it wouldn't have been the case if this museum hadn't put on such a great exhibit first! :)
