You Jump, I Jump

James Cameron's Titanic is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, and attractions across the United States are commemorating the film's debut. If your group members are film fans, hopeless romantics or curious about how Jack just couldn't hop right up on that door with Kate instead of dying from hypothermia—check out these activities.

The Titanic Movie Gallery

The Titanic Museum Attraction in Branson, Missouri, is hoping to bring fans closer to the magic of Titanic than ever before by showcasing costumes, set pieces, props, signed scripts and more from the movie. The exhibit runs through June 13, 2017.

More Costumes!

Pigeon Forge, Tennessee's Titanic Museum Attraction is celebrating, too. From June 15 to September 4 this summer, your group members can marvel at costumes from the movie. On April 7 and 8, groups can join the 2017 Titanic Gathering and meet the great granddaughter of Margaret "Molly" Brown, enjoy a first class dinner in the "secret" dining room, receive two days' admission and more.

The Only Ice You'll Need ...
Allow your groups to experience Titanic in a proper setting: a grand 100-year-old movie palace. On Friday, May 26, at 7 p.m., the Paramount and Stateside Theatres in Austin, Texas, will be screening the film. They promise the only ice your group members will need to worry about will be the ice in their cocktail glasses.

Tour the Molly Brown House
The Molly Brown House Museum is offering tours on Saturday, April 15, at 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. Group members could learn about Brown's experiences and explore how different classes of passengers traveled on The Titanic, the ship's effects on maritime law and hear stories of the immigrants coming to a new home. Advanced reservations are recommended—but the museum is open year-round.
