PIGEON FORGE, TN – June 18, 2019 – Out of the 3,000 life jackets from the RMS Titanic, only 12 are known to exist. Six of the life jackets are set to be on display July 1-December 2019 at the Titanic Museum Attraction – Pigeon Forge.
• There were enough life jackets to protect the 2,208 passengers and crew on board the RMS Titanic, but not enough lifeboats to save them all.
• The life jackets were made of hard cork and canvas, proving dangerous for many forced to jump into the water.
• A lifeboat drill was never held. It was scheduled on Sunday and the Captain canceled it the day before.
The Titanic Museum Attraction in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, is open at 9 a.m. daily. Reservations are strongly suggested and can be made online at www.titanicpigeonforge.com or by phone at 800-381-7670.
