Did not know what to expect, but was met by a really friendly Museum Curator the museum itself was great but the highlight was seeing Davy Crockets Rifle. A pleasant afternoon.

A really nice museum that teaches you a lot about the history of East Tennessee. The exhibits are well maintained and very informative. It's a lot of information to take in at once so we will certainly go back for another visit to learn more.

The entrance fee of $5 is very reasonable. Tim at the front desk was very welcoming and gave us a lof of information. When we left the security guard had additional tips for us on how we could spend the rest of the day in Knoxville.

A morning well spent!

This museum is very well done in representing this beautiful part of Tennessee and its history. We thoroughly enjoyed the quilt exhibit that is currently on display. The museum flows nicely and offers many insights to the people and history of the area.
