£16m replica Titanic built as huge US museum

275x250.jpg A giant 100ft tall replica of the doomed Titanic has been built in the US -- as a museum attraction.

The 50 percent scale ship - which cost £16million to build - is the world's largest museum attraction and will teach visitors all about the ill-fated voyage.

Visitors enter the Missouri attraction via a 30ft iceberg on the starboard bow and are presented with a 'boarding pass' bearing the name of a Titanic passenger.

Once inside the 30,000 square foot museum there are replica rooms and interactive exhibitions -- just try to ignore all he people singing like Celine Dion.

"Guests will relive the last hours of that fateful voyage. Make haunting emotional connections to passengers and crew through their words and stories," they added.
