It set sail from Southampton, England, and sank in the North Atlantic, so what's the fabled ocean liner Titanic doing in Knoxville, Tenn.? Actually it's a half-scale, three-deck re-creation of the  vessel, filled with 20 galleries displaying nearly 400 authentic artifacts from the ship saved by survivors and rescuers of the 1912 disaster. The Titanic Museum, which opened in April, also features full-size reproductions of third-class quarters, a first-class suite, dining rooms and a $1 million exact reproduction of the Grand Staircase.
