Cedar Bay Entertainment opened the ship-shaped attraction in 2010. It is built half-scale to the original ship. The structure is built in a pool to create the illusion of the Titanic at sea, and the 2-hour, self-guided tour is designed to give guests the sensation of being an original passenger on the Titanic’s 1912 maiden voyage. The museum bills itself as the world’s largest Titanic museum attraction and lets visitors stick their hands in 28 degree water to feel what passengers experienced on the cruise ship’s doomed voyage. At the museum, visitors touch a real iceberg. Boarding the $1 Million exact replica of Titanic ,they receive a Boarding Pass of an actual Titanic passenger/crew member. They also can view $4.5 million + of Titanic artifacts. The heart of the ship is the Grand Staircase, constructed from the original Harland & Wolff plans with its oak carvings and cherub statue. Here, a magnificent glass dome reflects light off oak wall paneling and elaborate railings and iron scrollwork. Admission tickets start from $31. The attraction closed Monday night after the collapse but reopened for those with tickets on Tuesday. The RMS Titanic, a luxury steamship, sank in the early hours of April 15, 1912, off the coast of Newfoundland in the North Atlantic after sideswiping an iceberg during its maiden voyage. Of the 2,240 passengers and crew on board, more than 1,500 lost their lives in the disaster
