The Main Museum has wonderful pieces from the Appalachian People especially the musical instruments! The outer buildings provide tourists a look into the AP's everyday lives! Great afternoon for us!

What impressed me the most where the historic photographs of the people of Appalachia, and their faces. Some of the stories paired with the images were incredibly touching. Take time to explore the buildings at the back of the site. Very good museum.

The museum is a short, pretty drive from Knoxville. We lingered in the Hall of Fame and in the barn with all the tools and relics. Just a feast for the eyes and the mind. The lunch (soup) was tasty and down home. The various...More
