Titanic Museum Attraction Displaying World’s Largest Collection of Last Remaining RMS Titanic Lifejackets

A new dimension in “Living Titanic Exhibits” is on display at the Titanic Museum Attraction in Branson, Mo.

For the first and only time, the largest assemblage of remaining RMS Titanic Lifejackets will be on exclusive display March through June 15, 2019 at the Titanic Museum Attraction.

"This is a stunning, world exclusive exhibit we’re extremely proud to bring to Branson and to millions of our Titanic followers,” said President, COO and Co-Owner Kellogg-Joslyn. “There are only 12 KNOWN Titanic lifejackets left in the world. For the first time anywhere, seven of these priceless artifacts will be here at the Titanic Museum Attraction. These jackets gave hope to the helpless, and what stories they could tell. During this rare event, our Titanic crew will speak for them.”

There were enough lifejackets to protect the 2,208 passenger/crew on board the Titanic…but not enough lifeboats to save them all.

Lifejackets were made of hard cork and canvas, proving dangerous for many forced to jump into the water. A life boat drill was never held.
