Monday, October 21, 2013 - by Amanda Stravinsky

This year’s new Dive & Dine excursion will include an escorted tour of the Titanic Museum Attraction and a first-class dinner. Tickets are $45.

Also new in 2014, a tribute gallery dedicated to one of the Titanic’s most colorful passengers, Margaret “Unsinkable Molly” Brown will open. Her great-granddaughter, Helen Benziger, will visit the Titanic Museum Attraction in Pigeon Forge Valentine’s weekend.
