Possible Locations for Additional Titanic Museums

Fri Aug 30, 2019 3:02 am

What other places do you think would be good locations for a Titanic Museum besides the ones currently in Belfast, Pigeon Forge, and Branson. I am thinking Bridgewater, Massachusetts, since the Ballard Institute was located there. Also, there are whole sections of the Maritime Museums in Southampton and Halifax dedicated to the Titanic.

First off, I've got to wonder why there are dedicated Titanic museums in places as far inland and totally unrelated to the Titanic disaster as Pigeon Forge, Tennessee and Branson, Missouri, other than a shameless desire to fleece tourists for every nickel possible. Both locations would be better served with well-planned museums of moonshining.

Secondly, if I go to a museum I want to see genuine artifacts, not just a few blown-up period photographs, some illustrations, and a bit of text to go with them... that is an exhibit, not a full-blown museum, and there are very, very few genuine Titanic artifacts to go around.

Should there be?

Recovered corpses were brought to Halifax.

As ArchGuy said there's a major part of Halifax's Maritime Museum of the Atlantic devoted to the Titanic.

I thought I had read somewhere there is a monument on one of the eastern most capes dedicated to those who died on Titanic.

There was also a Titanic Museum in Rosarito, Mexico at the Baja Studios where Cameron's Titanic was filmed from about 1998 until the drug wars intensified in the late 2000's.

Is it just me, am I alone in thinking this, ArchGuy1 has a very similar posting style to our master of Pink, who hasn’t posted for a while.

There's also a Titanic attraction of some kind in Orlando, with artifacts. Why Orlando? No idea, but makes about as much sense of some of the other locations mentioned.

I hope so. Is it just me or does this site have the highest percentage of "out there" people of any forum that you belong to?

There is. I think it might be where the recovered bodies were identified, and may mark the location where the unclaimed bodies were buried. On one of the "brain-fill" channels (History, Discovery, Learning, etc., back before they all went to a "reality show" format) there was a program about what happened to the recovered dead from Titanic that showed the monument.

He does have a similar style thematically, but ArchGuy's wording and sentence structure sometimes make me think English might not be his first language, whereas Pink is clearly a native English speaker, I'd guess of the US variety.

Obviously I'm not Kiwirob but for myself... Nah, not even close.

The Titanic experience at Baja Studios in Rosarito was called Foxploration.
