A pleasant surprise to come across this excellent coverage of the area from archaic times to the present. Give it at least an hour or two as what they have is so interesting.

Extremely educational. Fills in a lot of gaps in history through 1700/1800's. Very well presented and explained. Stumbled onto this place while visiting Market Square. So glad we did.

Really enjoyed learning more about Eastern Tennessee with the thoughtful exhibits here. As interactive as you’d like to be with immersion in historic recordings from diaries of the 1700s through the 1900s. Really well organized and exhibits described without current PC bias. Highly recommended.

Great place to spend a couple of hours. I found the special exhibit on Sergeant Alvin York very interesting.

A Knoxville Gem! A nice place to take out of town guests to learn local history and we visit each time there is a new display, combining it with lunch downtown and another activity like Market Square Farmer's Market on Saturday etc.
