East Tennessee History Center, Knoxville Reviews

Google+
  • Great displays and value! Got to see lots of cool, unique artifacts. I think they could stand more critical look at parts of the state's history like convict labor in mines, but I generally thought the displays were representative. Especially a fan of Davy Crockett artifacts and impressed with the short and frank treatment of his life. Keep fighting the good fight, Tennessee!

  • Greyhound was delayed for a few hours so I visited this museum. 98% of items are authentic and the originals. I enjoyed the originally built 1800s cabin, early 1900s Cadillac vehicle, exhibits you can physically touch, and especially the gift shop. There is a lot of detail placed into every exhibit and backed by first hand account and witnesses. This place should definitely be on the visit list when in Knoxville.

  • Loved East Tennessee History Museum in Downtown Knoxville, TN. Great information about the land, music and people. So excited to see special exhibit of Sergeant York, World War 1 Hero. Perfect for kids and awesome gift shop. Downtown Nashville has many shops and cafes too!

  • Loved this place, spent two hours and didn't see it all. They have a great year round exhibit along with a special temporary themed exhibit. Very pleasant and interesting with friendly staff.

  • Good size for a museum downtown. There’s a lot of information and interesting exhibits. I ended up spending a couple of hours. Definitely worth the $5 admission for adults.
