Iceberg dead ahead...

Saturday friends were due into town to join us in attending the Titanic Artifact Exhibit at the museum. We purchased advance sale tickets on Thursday....Saturday morning we got the call that they couldn't make it. C really wanted to go, so she took one ticket and my sister mentioned really wanting to go, so she took the other.

When you enter they give you a boarding pass with a name of a real person on the ship. At the end you can look and see if you "survived".C, myself, and P all sister did not. It was pretty amazing to see objects that were really aboard the ship. They say within 90 years the ship will disappear from the ocean floor...crazy!
After we finished the exhibit we took a quick look around the museum. They have done a lot of remodeling since the last time I was there...many years ago! Everything now needs to be so much more stimulating to keep people's interest.
Since we couldn't take pics in the Titanic Exhibit, P was worried I would be carted away if I took ANY in the museum. I took only these.......

This guy was BIG...see the guy in back too? These guys actually roamed the areas around our neighborhoods.
How about these little underwater guys? They really aren't under water....just STUFFED and hanging there, but they look pretty real. Honestly the stuffed things bothered me.

Anyhow, a different kind of day.
Oh, and when we got home....Titanic was on TV.....weird!

I bet that exhibit is really neat. I saw one many years ago in Halifax and I remember just staring at all those items and wondering about the person to whom they belonged.

They are building some big Titantic musuem here (in Pigeon Forge) and the museum looks like a scale model of the ship. It's weird topping the hill and seeing this boat forming on the horizon. lol!
