We visited the museum although it was closed when we went there. No problem, I was able to take lots of photos of the grounds, beautiful with fall leaves falling. The covered wagon behind in the "garage" and just being where Davy Crockett had lived was an experience we enjoyed.

Pretty tiny museum with hourly tours. Staff knows their history, and what you can learn about Davy Crockett, the settlers at that time, and how they lived is incredible. They do offer different events throughout the year. Worth the time to stop.

Check the open schedule and step back a little in history. Great staff and they do offer various events throughout the year. Beautiful and well kept. Easy to locate. Excellent backdrop for a few photos.

This is a tiny museum dedicated to Davy Crockett with information about other settlers of this area of Tennessee. Both times that we went we had young teen boys with us and visitors from Wisconsin. The woman who was the docent for the day both times was a former history teacher in Morristown and extremely knowledgeable. She spent as much... More

This is a rather small museum, but the woman who took us through it was very knowledgable about all things Crockett. Not so much, perhaps, for children, as it doesn't have much at all on the"king of the wild frontier" level - it is more the story of his family. But interesting for all of that.

This is an interesting little historical marker and place of interest to celebrate the journey of David Crockett. It gives a history of the tavern and a walk through at your own pace with much interesting things to observe and look at
