I’m from Michigan, where we use our hand as a map. Where Tim Allen, Alice Cooper, Madonna, Motown, The White Stripes, Stevie Wonder, Kid Rock, Eminem, Robin Williams, and Bob Segar are from. A vacation was to Cedar Point, Up North, to Florida, or a drive across the Bridge. We are the only large inland peninsula on earth. We love Faygo, Superman Ice Cream, Better Made Chips, Vernor’s, Mackinaw Isla…nd Fudge and Koegels Hot Dogs. We know that the UP is a place not a direction. We play Euchre, Poker, swim in lakes, fish, camp and snowmobile. We bake with “soda” and drink “pop”. We measure distance in hours (its about 2 hours away). We can drive 65 mph in a foot of snow or a blizzard and not even flinch, and still have school.
The TitanicMuseum is a two-story museum shaped like the RMS Titanic. It is located in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee and opened on April 8, 2010. It is built half-scale to the original ship. Similar to the one in Branson, Missouri, the museum holds 400 pre-discovery artifacts in twenty galleries. It is the largest permanent Titanic museum in the world.
The structure is built in a pool to create the illusion of the Titanic at sea, and the 2-hour, self-guided tour is designed to give guests the sensation of being an original passenger on the Titanic's 1912 maiden voyage.
As guests enter, they are given a passenger boarding ticket. On this ticket is the name of an actual Titanic passenger and the class they were traveling. Guests will learn the individual stories of several passengers. In the Titanic Memorial Room, they will find out whether their ticketed passenger survived.
The structure cost $25 million to build.
Prepare to be blown away as you explore the life-sized reconstruction of Noah’s Ark. Built according to the dimensions given in the Bible, Ark Encounter is a jaw-dropping structure you’ll want to bring your whole family to see.
“The ocean is everything I want to be.
Beautifully, mysterious, wild and free.”
