This museum is very small and there is not much on display. One of the rooms has nothing to do with President Johnson. 15 minutes was about all it took. Do not go out of your way for this.

Interesting man, more so than I'd realized previously. The 1851 Homestead is well preserved. Early home of marginal interest, but a good Johnson personal & political chronology on placards inside. His tailor shop is the most interesting-it's inside the Visitor Center.

When you visit Greeneville, be sure you include this spot. The exhibits are enjoyable. The maps provided by the town do not lead you here so it is hard to find
