Titanic Museum Hosts Free Ice Carving Competition

Titanic Sloping DeckOn January 16, 2010, the Titanic Museum in Branson will host the 4th annual Ice Sculpture Competition, which is free to the public. Visitors can come and watch experienced carvers create works of art from solid blocks of ice.

In last year’s event, 18 professional and amateur carvers worked on 250 pound blocks of ice to create a beautiful piece of art. During the event, visitors can talk to the carvers and see the works in progress. In addition, the National Ice Carving Association will be on hand to judge the pieces and announce the winning sculpture later in the day. The competition runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

In other Titanic news, visitors have only a limited time left to enjoy two of the special exhibits at the Titanic. December 11 and 12 are the final days to see Santa’s Reindeer at the museum in Branson. The museum has several live reindeer on hand, and guests can take pictures and pet the reindeer. The reindeer are available from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day.

In addition, the museum’s special exhibit about the Titanic movie directed by James Cameron will leave the ship on January 1, 2010, leaving visitors only a few days left to see this rare collection. The movie memorabilia collection contains pieces and artifacts from the movie, including set pieces and authentic costumes. The highlight of the collection is the diamond and sapphire necklace that boasts over 16 carats of diamonds and a 155 carat sapphire.

  1. I would love to see that ice carving competition! And now I really hope I can make it to the mueseum before the movie memorabilia leaves. I would love to see those costumes in person. Have to try and clear out my schedule before the end of the year.

  2. My roommate and I have been wanting to see the Titanic Museum since we first heard about it. An ice carving competition could only make the attraction better!

  3. My kids and I went to the Ice Sculpturing Competition. It was amazing to see this talent. The weather was warmer than expected so it really was challenging for the competitors to keep their ice formations from thawing too quickly. However, against all odds, the sculptures turned out amazing and my kids really enjoyed watching the process.
