The museum contained artifacts, written, audio and video history lessons. And when you climb to the top of the lighthouse-type tower, the view is splendid. The price was only a couple of dollars. Well worth the cost.

Lots of history, never knew homes were built like this. Went up in the tower, good views. Not far from the State Park.

We weren't at all familiar with any of Tennessee's history. We viewed a short film about a very important part of our nation's history. I had studied it in school but never knew much about the "Great Depression" during Roosevelt's "New Deal". We especially enjoyed...More

Visited this museum and found it very interesting, learning about some of the cultural that existed back years ago. There are many steps to climb up to the top of the tower. Worth the visit!~

This museum is interesting but not exceptional. The only cost is if you'd like to watch the brief video. We're glad we did. It explained the economic issues Tennesseans and all of the U.S. were facing at that time. I admire the tenacity of those...More

Small museum...and if you have a larger group of minimally interested teens, its a bit pricy for what you see. My teenagers just rushed right through it. That being said, I really enjoyed learning about the Homestead area . It is from Roosevelt's attempts to...More
