Branson Titanic Museum: A Museum You’ll Never Let Go
The RMS Titanic, or simply Titanic, was a British liner that aboard thousands of passengers. It was on its way to New York City from Southampton, UK when it collided with an iceberg and sank in the North Atlantic Ocean on April 15, 1912. It has been one of the most tragic maritime disasters in the world and so many replicas have been made in order to study and commemorate the event.
In 1963, Ed Kamuda formed the Titanic Historical Society (THS), which is the first and largest global organization dedicated to preserving the history of the British Liner. Titanic Branson works with THS. And since Branson is known as an entertainment city because of its attractions, Titanic Branson has established a museum dedicated to the Titanic. The Branson Titanic Museum has become one of the most famous attractions in Branson. It has been the tourist spot for people looking for history, romance, or just simply a museum for the family.
