Tennessee Titanic Museum Celebrates Movie Anniversary

It’s hard to believe it’s been two decades since James Cameron’s film “Titanic” broke attendance and box office records in 1997.

If you’re visiting White Oak Lodge and Resort this summer, be sure to visit the Titanic Museum Attraction in Pigeon Forge. The Museum will honor the Titanic film through special exhibits June 17-September 4.

Guests will be able to view a special exhibit of movie costumes on display during the homage to the re-release of the film in 2017.
