Guests of the World’s Largest TITANIC Museum Attraction can now experience the tragic and heroic story of Titanic like never before on the all-new TITANIC Audio Tour featuring stories told by actual Titanic survivors.
Individual cell-phone-sized audio players guide guests along a narrated 90-minute tour of the TITANIC Museum Attraction with its 20 galleries on two decks and more than 400 priceless artifacts that once belonged to Titanic’s passengers or crew.
Listen as several of Titanic’s survivors tell about their chilling experiences the night the ship sank in 1912. Second class passenger Eva Miriam Hart, who was 7 years old and traveling with her parents from Southampton, England to Winnipeg, Canada, recalls her father telling her to, "... ‘be a good girl and hold Mommy's hand’...that's the last I saw of him," she says. Museum attraction co-owner John Joslyn recorded Eva’s story before her death in 1996 for the television special, “Return to the Titanic…Live” which he produced in 1987.
Also included on the audio tour is second class passenger Edith Brown Haisman who was 15 years-old and traveling from Southampton to Seattle, Washington with her parents. She died in 1997 but at the age of 99, took a cruise to the site of the Titanic’s wreckage and threw a rose into the Atlantic Ocean where her father had perished some 84 years earlier.
In addition to the actual passenger stories, narrator Bernard Hill, the actor who played Captain Smith in James Cameron’s Oscar movie Titanic, provides descriptions of many of Titanic’s artifacts.
“This audio tour gives guests of all ages an opportunity to hear and feel the emotion behind what they see and read in the museum attraction,” said co-owner Mary Kellogg Joslyn. “It takes the Titanic experience to a whole new level.”

The World’s Largest TITANIC Museum Attraction is Branson’s new landmark tourist destination. The 17,000 square foot, ship-shaped structure - built half scale to Titanic’s original size - towers more than 100 feet above its anchored position on Highway 76. A 90-minute, self-guided tour covers 20 galleries on two decks where more than 400 priceless artifacts that once belonged to Titanic’s passengers or crew are on display. None of the artifacts were retrieved from the ocean’s floor.
