Hello,

Does anyone know the best museum in the United States to go to to know more about Titanic and her sisters? Also, what do you think of the Titanic museum in Pigeon Forge, TN?

Hello Michael,

Thanks for your advice. Do you know if you are able to take regular pictures at the Titanic museum in Pigeon Forge, TN?

Also, what do you like best about the museum?

Not permitted. The reason is that many of the artifacts on display are fairly old and bright lights will tend to destroy them over time.

I didn't have any special favourites.

What if I have a camera that does not take flash pictures?

One of the main reasons why museums don't like cameras is because visitors taking their own pictures are less likely to buy those sold at the souvenir counter.

>>I know. They just want the money! <<

Why is this an argument?

Got news for you: The money they take in this way is what it takes to keep this place open. These museums/attractions cannot compel revenue by way of taxation. They get no public funding of any kind so if they get no income, they get shut down.
