  • We stopped by this museum on a day there was a festival going on and really enjoyed it. There was music in the old barn, apple cider was being made, quilts on review, a smithy in the blacksmith shop, ...  read more »
  • I always love to see and "feel" the history of a place. Imagine the people who lived and raised their families. The farm village does a great job in representing that. 
  • The mountain farm exhibit was very interesting. Also this time of year the elk are in a rut and may be seen in the field beside the museums display 
  • Ever wonder what it was like to live in the Great Smoky Mountains hundreds of years ago? If so, the Mountain Farm Museum should be your #1 destination the next time you visit the Cherokee, NC area. From a small mountain cabin to a large barn, many structures have been transported from throughout the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and preserved here. See how our ancestors survived in the wilderness with the bare essentials. Be sure to allot several hours for the experience!
  • Great place. Old homestead with some animals. Beside river with a good walkway to enjoy nature. Very peaceful. Early morning and late afternoon good chance of seeing wild turkey and elk in the large field.
  • The Mountain Farm is great. Don't miss the piglets in the back corner! On weekends the living history presentations are a nice treat. Plenty of things to take photographs of.
  • Very interesting look at farm life in the mountains and the use of resources to live!
  • Really cool's free and the kids loved it
