  • I'm a huge history buff. I thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Sydney. Her knowledge is extensive. We learned so much. She was informative, not hokey touristy. A great visit!  more »
  • While we didn't get to see the show because they were closed for the season. We were not able to take the tour either because it already started. Not sure how they make their money if we arrived at 11...  more »

  • This place is small, but truly cool. When we arrived there was nobody around even though we had read a tour was scheduled at that time. We poked around a bit in front of the gift shop and the person working there came out and told us it was closed for a film crew that was doing shots there that day. However, they hadn't shown up yet, so we got a personalized short tour. It was great. Very cool to see how people lived in such small homes. I wish there were actors and stuff, because that would have been awesome.
  • It’s neat. I got to roam around and look at the outside of the houses. But the museum wasn’t open, although the internet page said it was.
  • If you like history Go Here! I enjoyed that I learned alot about the history of Appalachia.
  • The people who worked there were so knowledgeable and eager to share the history of the early Americans with the visitors. It was a very rewarding experience!
  • Director called the Boone P.D. and made a fictitious report, and had me banned, He told two outright lies I purchased 150 dollars worth of gifts from the gift shop on a previous visit, I'm long time supporter of Horn in the West, Hickory Ridge Living Museum, Daniel Boone Native Gardens, and the Farmers Market. Sorry because of this Director I give this place the lowest ratings possible. Stop and do see,the Daniel Boone Native Gardens, beautiful coll of wildflowers and native plants which I have contributed to, It's next door, I haven't been banned there, Botanist, David Schiffman
