The Titanic Museum announced this week that they will be reopening their doors to the public on Monday, June 1. This reopening applies to both the Pigeon Forge location as well as the Branson, Mo. location. 

The Titanic Museum made the announcement on social media along with the new requirements: Guest admission will be limited, reservations will be required, and guests aged 5 and older will be required to wear a face mask. Face masks can be purchased from the museum for $4 for adults and $3 for children. 

Guests who have purchased tickets online previously or guests who wish to make new reservations may call the reservations department at 1-800-381-7670. 

The opening will come as a sigh of relief for guests who were hoping to get a glimpse of the $1.7 million dollar Titanic violin, which belonged to bandleader Wallace Hartley. The violin is the highest price ever paid for any Titanic artifact and has only been seen in public in two locations: the Titanic Museum in Pigeon Forge and in Branson, Mo. The violin will be on display in Pigeon Forge beginning July 1.

The Titanic Museum has been closed since March 18 due to coronavirus concerns. Since the closure, they have had a strong social media presence, hosting a Storytelling series with First Class Maid Jodi online, which consist of inspirational passenger stories about hope, courage and resilience. At the time of the closure, the Titanic Museum owners offered advice on their social media page for the trying times ahead:

“Love your Child with sweet surprise notes.

Think of an old Friend.

Wave at your Neighbor.

Share your thoughts with your family.

Take a moment for yourself.

Be there for someone else.

Watch the Sunset.

Look forward to the Sunrise.” 

They added, “We are all part of a vigorous, hospitable and family oriented community with a responsibility to look out for one another, that’s what we do at the Titanic Museum in Branson, MO & Pigeon Forge, TN, and together will weather this storm. We are grateful for your understanding and for being the best part of our lives at the Titanic Museum Attractions.”
