I’ll be reminding you closer to time, but I thought you might want to add this to your 2011 calendar. I have a friend who went with her girls and talked about what an educational experience it was for them.
Although it has been open less than a year, the Titanic Museum attraction already is recognized as one of the Great Smoky Mountain area’s top attractions, and according to owner John Joslyn, the museum is just getting started.
“As we approach the end of 2010, Titanic Pigeon Forge is locking-in exciting, seasonal events to add fresh, new excitement to the already super-charged museum attraction,” Joslyn said. “Each of our special events are carefully selected for their entertainment and educational values as well as their ability to tie into and enhance Titanic’s rich legacy.”
Following its “Christmas in a Winter Wonderland” celebration (which includes real snow every weekend, amazing Edwardian decorations and other holiday festivities) that runs Saturday, November 13, 2010 through Saturday, January 1, 2011, the Titanic Museum Attraction will begin a full year’s worth of special events to keep “passengers” amazed as they experience the one-of-a-kind Titanic Museum Attraction.
