I was quite saddened when I arrived at the Titanic Museum in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee and was informed that picture and video taking was prohibited. My goal is always to document my trips, however with the $4 million worth of artifacts inside, I suppose I understand the owners concern with copyright infringement.
I did manage to snap a few shots of the outside of the museum, a museum that costs close to $25.00 a head to get into. The likeness is really uncanny to say the least, so I'm still satisfied with the mini tour I was able to take around the grounds.
I did, on a whim, ask the individuals working in the front to ask the owners if they could make an exception. Why? I told them my site "Ancient Digger" is featured on the Discovery Channel News Roll. No, this doesn't mean I'm with Discovery, it just means Discovery finds my site interesting enough to feature, along with some amazing company I might add.
I was graciously informed that the owners weren't on site, however if they were, they may have made some sort of arrangement with me. So, if you're out there, how about a guided tour for the Ancient Digger?
