East Tennessee abuzz over April launch of Titanic Museum

In The Mountain Press, journalist Gail Crutchfield writes, "As the 98th anniversary of the April 15, 1912 sinking of the Titanic nears, residents and visitors to the Smoky Mountains will soon have the unique opportunity to walk the halls and decks of the famous ship and experience a small portion of what the more than 2,000 passengers and crew felt on that fateful night.
The Titanic World’s Largest Museum Attraction is set to open in April, providing 30,000 square feet of the artifacts and photographs you would expect to see in a museum, plus many interactive opportunities, activities specifically for children and glimpses into the way of life for those sailing on the luxury liner."
With extensive quotes from the museum's owners, John Joslyn and Mary-Kellogg Joslyn, the feature article offers a unique glimpse of what the newest Pigeon Forge attraction has to offer. Unlike anything else in the area, the Titanic Museum is certain to be a big draw. Approximately 750,000 visitors are anticipated during the museum's first year (more than 2 million people have toured the other Titanic Museum in Branson, Missouri since the Joslyns opened it three years ago).
“The heart of the ship, though, the one that everybody wants to see, is what we call our million dollar grand staircase,” Kellogg said (in the article). “And it’s actual size. So for the first time in the world, you’ll actually walk that grand staircase and go up to a the first-class suite.”
