    Are you aware of the two museums in the USA? I was provided with a link this morning to one of them then found there were two!!!

    Titanic Museum Branson - Google Search

    Tennessee Titanic Museum - Google Search

    Very strange set up if you ask me, I read that your entry ticket bears the name of a passenger and you find out at the end of the tour if you survived or not.
    Macabre!!!!!!

      Not at all. The little Titanic Museum in Cobh have been doing that for years.

      I've visited twice and both times ''I'' survived.

        I still think it is in bad taste.

          I suppose it might seem in bad taste to some, but it didn't feel like that at all and in fact, I found it rather poignant.

          The ticket had a passenger's name on it and it was entirely up to the individual visitor to find out if the named person survived, which you found out by actively looking at the interactive Titanic passenger list. At no time was it highlighted as ''you'' drowned or ''you'' survived.

          All rather nicely done and very moving. Well I found it so.
