Episode 6: Titanic Museum Attraction & Gatlinburg Skylift Park
Play • 42 min

When the Titanic sank in the Atlantic back in 1912, more than 1,200 people died in an icy cold sea. The "unsinkable" ship sailed only 5 days on its maiden voyage to New York before slamming into an iceberg.

The Titanic Museum Attraction houses the largest collection of Titanic artifacts in the world. John Joslyn, the museum's owner, was the explorer who led the expedition to recover the artifacts from the ship's resting place.

The original artifacts, worth more than $4,000,000.00, are beautifully displayed. The interactive museum gives guests an opportunity to see how the ship was built, ascend the grand staircase, dip your fingers into 20+ degree water, and imagine traveling as a passenger.

The most famous artifact on display is the Hartley Violin. Hartley and his small ensemble played hymns while the ship sank in an effort to give peace to passengers.

The 56,000 piece Lego replica of the Titanic is also on display.

Marc and Ann talk about their visit to the museum, lunch at Hard Rock Café, and how you can get discount tickets.

A bonus ending includes a conversation with Ann's sisters about their recent trip to the Gatlinburg Skylift Park.
