Summer vacation is coming to a close and soon Los Tres Amigos and the little old lady will return to school. However, we managed to sneak in just one more quick weekend getaway trip to Branson and a visit to the Titanic Branson Museum Attraction.
The Titanic Museum is one of our fave attractions to visit whenever we're in Branson. Yes, Branson, Missouri. Branson offers the perfect getaway for families and the Three Boys and an Old Lady family visits every single chance we get. There are tons of things to do. You can ride go-karts, catch a show, play a few rounds of miniature golf and visit the local wineries. There's so much to do and see.
As I mentioned earlier, the Titanic Museum is ONE of our fave attractions in Branson. Since it's a museum, it's open year round and perfect for hot Summer days and cold Winters. It's funny watching cars drive past the museum. Cars slow down often to a complete stop, car windows roll down, fingers point out of car windows and pictures are snapped. You can't miss the Titanic. From the outside it's monumental and once inside you will be completely mesmerized by the grandeur of it all.
Once inside you receive a boarding pass with the name of an actual Titanic passenger or crew member. Each experience is different depending on the boarding pass you receive. I've no doubt you'll stand in awe of the grandiose that is forever associated with the Titanic. From the Grand Staircase (pictured below) to the First Class Stateroom, visitors get a taste of the luxuries of the ill-fated Titanic. The Grand Staircase is a whopping $1 million replica of the Titanic's staircase. We heard whispers of wedding proposals with the Grand Staircase as the backdrop. Sadly, we've never witnessed any during any of our visits, but OMG can you imagine how beautiful that would be.
Our kids enjoy the interactive displays and exhibits and the shutterbug in me was so tempted to grab my camera, but *sigh* no pictures allowed. It's a museum and to preserve the artifacts the no picture rule must be enforced. However, there are photo ops available from outside the museum and the family will have memories of their favorite items from inside to last forever.
During our last visit, the Titanic Museum had opened the Discover the 133 Children Stories of the Titanic gallery. When the Titanic set sail, there were 2,208 people on board and 133 of them were children.
This exhibit, like many others featured at the museum, is perfect for enhancing learning. Parents and educators can visit http://www.titanicattraction.com/titanic-education-guide.php to download the Titanic Curriculum Resource Guide and lessons in a variety of subjects including Science, Language Arts, History and more.
The Titanic Museum is just one of the many attractions in Branson but with the changing exhibits, there's always something new to discover.
