The Live Entertainment Capital of the World is not just popular for its live shows. In Branson, you can set sail to the largest ocean in the world. How, get aboard the Titanic Museum and discover the faith of the passengers, fun facts about the ship and do a little shopping while sailing. So how do you get started? By obtaining a ticket of course! But if you think that the crew will hand you an ordinary ticket the likes you'll find at theaters, you'd be surprised to know that you will be traveling onboard under a different name. In fact you will be an actual Titanic passenger for a while. Who knows? It depends upon how lucky you are. You could be a first, second or third class passenger or even a crew.
As you step inside you will be able to see and touch the iceberg that caused the Titanic's drastic fate. Inside you will find a great collection of artifacts that originally came from the ship itself. 400 authentic artifacts are display inside the replica of the ship. One of the most sought after experience inside is the walk through the Grand staircase where you'll see a first class stateroom, a collection of Father Browne's photographs and touch an iceberg. This will surely be an experience worth every vacation dollar you spend during your Branson trip.
