Visitors to the museum will have the chance to see over 400 artifacts that were on the real Titanic, along with plenty of fascinating educational material and hands on activities that kids absolutely love.
3. The Old Mill Square
The Old Mill is one of the most iconic landmarks in Pigeon Forge! This historic gristmill has been grinding grain into flour since 1830, and at one point, it even provided electricity for the whole city. Today, The Old Mill Square is home to two superb restaurants, a general store, an ice cream parlor, a candy kitchen, a pottery shop, and even more great businesses. Your family will love shopping, dining, and feeding the ducks at The Old Mill.

Parrot Mountain & Gardens is another one of the best Pigeon Forge attractions for families. This one-of-a-kind destination is home to hundreds of beautiful parrots of every color and variety. Guests will have the chance to make some new feathered friends, pose for a photo with the parrots, and even play with baby birds in the nursery.
