Don’t Miss Seeing The World’s Largest Collection of RMS Titanic Lifejackets
Did you know there were only 12 known life jackets remaining from the Titanic? This surprises me but knowing that the majority of them are on display at the Titanic Museum in Branson makes planning another trip back high on my travel plans. I recently visited Branson and spent an evening at the Titanic Museum. I can’t describe how much this particular visit touched my heart. It has been on my mind ever since.
For the first and only time, the largest assemblage of the remaining RMS Titanic Lifejackets will be on exclusive display in the Titanic Museum Attraction in Branson, Missouri.
According to the President, COO and Co-Owner, Mary Kellogg-Joslyn, “This is a stunning, world exclusive exhibit we’re extremely proud to bring to Branson and to millions of our Titanic followers. There are only 12 KNOWN Titanic lifejackets left in the world. For the first time anywhere, 7 of these priceless artifacts will be here at the Titanic Museum Attraction. These jackets gave hope to the helpless, and what stories they could tell. During this rare event, our Titanic crew will speak for them.”
Important Facts to Ponder
There were enough lifejackets to protect the 2,208 passenger/crew on board Titanic – but not enough lifeboats to save them all.
Lifejackets were made of hard cork and canvas, proving dangerous for many forced to jump into the water.
A life boat drill was never held.
I don’t know about you, but these facts just blow my mind!
If you are going to be or live within a day’s drive of Branson. Don’t miss being the among the first to witness this major Titanic Museum Attraction event.
The museum attraction opens daily at 9:00 AM and reservations are strongly suggested. Tickets are available online or by phone at 800-391-7870.
