What people are saying about Smoky Mountains

We really enjoyed the museum. It was fun and very informational with an interactive component as well. Your ticket will include the name and info of one of the passengers and you can look for more info about them throughout the exhibit, ultimately learning their final outcome at the end of the tour. I found it fascinating to look at the actual items and artifacts that they had on board - very interesting to see what things were like in a different time. This was definitely one of my favorite places on our trip.

My family enjoyed the entire experience from start to finish. Being given an actual passengers name at the beginning created a scavenger like feeling of finding your passengers name in the different areas. My Grandson was a first officer so he was listed several places. Seeing the actual artifacts ( not replicas ) was a highlight.

Interactive educational experience good for adults and children 10 and up. Overall well worth the price. Good merchandise and prices in the gift shop as well

Great Tour - love that you are given a photo card of a passenger to follow their history and find out whether you live or parish.

What a great museum. It was definitely well worth the visit. A must see.
