Titanic Museum Attraction: see the Wallace Hartley violin

May 28, 2013

There’s a special opportunity to see a rare Titanic artifact at the Titanic Museum Attraction in Pigeon Forge now through July 27: the Wallace Hartley violin. Here’s the information I received:

Pigeon Forge, Tenn. – For the first and only time in the United States, the iconic violin, depicted in Titanic-themed movies and actually used by Wallace Hartley on board Titanic, will be on display at the Titanic Museum Attractions in Pigeon Forge, TN.
According to Joslyn, this storied artifact will be unveiled to the American public on Wednesday, May 22 during a media conference at 10 a.m. at Titanic Museum Attraction in Pigeon Forge.  It will remain there until Saturday, July 27 before it travels to the Titanic Museum Attraction’s sister-location in Branson.  It will be on display in Branson,
Thursday, Aug. 1 through Thursday, Aug. 15 prior to it traveling back to England where it will be auctioned off by Henry Aldridge and Son on Saturday, Oct. 19. Widely regarded as the world’s leading experts in the sale of RMS Titanic memorabilia,

Henry Aldridge and Son have unparalleled experience in auctioning the rarest memorabilia ever to be offered and describe the Hartley Violin as “the Holy Grail.” “My visit to Pigeon Forge with the Hartley Violin is the culmination of nearly seven years of research,” said Alan Aldridge, Principal of Henry Aldridge and Son.  “I hope my visit to the Titanic Museum Attractions will enable their guests to understand the importance of the Wallace Hartley story.”

They also have an exhibit showcasing the stories of the 133 children who were on the Titanic. My children (above) really enjoyed getting to read the stories of some of the kids, and the new boarding passes with the scratch-off quizzes were fun!
