Titanic Branson to close its “Titanic” movie tribute gallery

After a two year run the exclusive the Titanic Branson will close its "Titanic" movie tribute gallery on January 1, 2010.

You’ll have to move quickly to experience Titanic Branson’s exclusive tribute to James Cameron’s movie masterpiece TITANIC. After a successful two-year run, the extraordinary one-of-a-kind exhibit will close January 1, 2010, announces Titanic Museum Attraction owner John Joslyn.

“More than a million visitors have toured our special TITANIC Movie Gallery. If you’re not already among that group—and even if you are—make plans to tour over the holidays before it’s too late,” says Joslyn. “This is the movie that swept the Academy Awards in 1997. It secured an unprecedented niche in Hollywood history after winning 11 Oscars.”

The TITANIC Movie Gallery offers a rare opportunity to go behind the scenes for a glimpse of the film’s hand-crafted props and set pieces and its beautiful costumes, including the famous red-beaded “jump” dress Rose was wearing when Jack kept her from jumping ship early in the film. There’s also the pink “sinking” coat Rose wore while rescuing Jack from the sinking ship, and the magnificent heart-shaped diamond and sapphire necklace that stole the show. Valued at more than $250,000, it boasts 325 diamonds totaling 16 carats that circle a stunning 155-carat sapphire. In addition, visitors are privy to behind-the-scenes videos, photos, provocative on-location stories and the actual shooting script Cameron used.

“During the holidays, we’ll be coming down to the wire as this great exhibit comes to a close. Be sure you catch this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” invites Joslyn, also the expedition leader of the first private exploration dive to Titanic’s wreck site.
