Ghost Adventures: The Titanic Museum
Zak and the crew investigate the massive Titanic Museum in Branson, Missouri. Employees believe the spirits of the 1,496 people who lost their lives on April 14, 1912, have found their way to the museum dedicated to their memory.
The Titanic Museum
The crew investigates the Titanic Museum in Branson, Missouri, home to more than 400 artifacts from the luxury ocean liner that sank to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean on April 15, 1912.
RMS Titanic Replica
Its been over 100 years since the tragic event, which cost 1,503 people their lives. Employees at the Titanic Museum say the souls of those lost that night are making themselves known even.
The museum itself is a sight to behold — an exact replica of the exterior of the ship, half the size. The 400 relics from the “Unsinkable” Titanic were located in the debris field or passed down from survivors of the disaster.
This basin filled with water is set to the exact temperature that the people in the surrounding waters of the Titanic would have had to swim in after the ship sank. The ocean temperature was about 30-degrees Fahrenheit, meaning anyone who was floating in the water with a life vest would last approximately less than 15 minutes before they succumbed to hypothermia.
One of the most stunning pieces in the museum is the replica of the grand staircase. (Show of hands: Titanic movie fans?) This is where tour guide Jamie Terrell says she saw the apparition of John Jacob Astor IV, a businessman and one of the wealthiest passengers onboard. He did not survive the sinking.
A wonderful replica of the glass roof that was positioned directly above the grand staircase.
A 3-D model allows guests to see what the inner workings of the ship looked like from top to bottom.
This is what the third-class living conditions would have looked like. One employee reported an incident where one of the pillows in the beds had an indent in it which made it look like someone had been laying on it, but there was no one around.
Meanwhile, the lodgings in first-class were much more spacious.
A wedding ring belonging to a passenger named Carl Asplund was retrieved when his body was discovered after the accident. One can only imagine the energy attached to an item like this.
The musicians who perished that night are immortalized in this room. The night of the disaster, they kept playing while trying to keep passengers as calm as possible in the face of almost certain death.
Try your hand at experiencing what it was like being on the deck of the Titanic as it began to sink with this interactive exhibit.
Wall of Stories
There is a room dedicated to the survivors, with the names of each passenger listed on the “Wall of Stories”. The energy in this room is palpable as the guys will soon find out.
Zak interviews Alexis Shetley, an employee who has had her fair share of unexplainable experiences, including the discovery of mysterious child-sized handprints on the glass windows of the Captain’s Bridge.
This area is known as the promenade deck, and it is here where the crew captures their best evidence during the investigation. Ready to set sail? Ghost Adventures is all-new, Saturday at 9|8c.
