People of Irish descent celebrate their heritage on St. Patrick’s Day, and anyone, from anywhere, can enjoy special events throughout Irish month this March at the Titanic Museum in Pigeon Forge. Storytelling and Gaelic humor, music with singing and dancing, and more will be featured throughout the month. The RMS Titanic arose from the Harland And Wolff Shipyard and the hands of its proud Irish workmen in Belfast, Ireland. Many members of both the ship’s crew and passenger list were of Irish descent.
Several authors of Titanic literature have scheduled Facebook interviews and book signings in March, culminating at month’s end with the 2nd annual Authors’ Week and Book Signing Fair from Saturday, March 29 to Saturday April 5th. The museum has also recently unveiled its featured new exhibit of Margaret “Unsinkable Molly” Brown, one of its many colorful, memorable passengers.
Board this museum “ship”, and immerse yourself in a recreation of sailing on the vast Titanic. Study her unparalleled opulence and the immense resources required to make an excursion. Experience the intricate details of the personal stories of those aboard the vessel during its maiden voyage and impending disaster. Touch an iceberg wall and plunge your hand into 28 degree water, which many endured upon the ship’s sinking.
During your visit, you will develop an interactive, hands-on knowledge of the Titanic that can be acquired no other way. There are activities to engage and educate your entire family aboard this museum. The RMS Titanic was and still is a captivating piece of modern maritime history.
