  • My son had a field trip here and it was so fun and educational. Our guide/speaker was amazing. Kept the kids attention the whole time.
  • Very nice museum. Great number of historic artifacts all the way from before European settlement till present day. Very informative and friendly staff.
  • First time here & I enjoyed it tremendously. Being a history fan, this was a great place that sums up a portion of East Tennessee's history. Highly encourage a stop here if you're visiting or even traveling through Knoxville.
  • I couldn't believe sheer volume of regional history information available at this place. The building houses more than one history related group so it's like one stop shopping! All the information is FREE and people that work here are glad to help you in your searches. It's in a beautifully restored area of downtown Knoxville with restaurants and parking available.
