  • This is a nice museum with a courteous and very knowledgeable staff. They have a historic film they show there that is well worth the time and the gift shop is probably better than the Smoky Mountains Heritage Center. GREAT handmade lye soap that they sell there!
  • So much information available for those who want to know about the national park before it was a park and the rail/lumber history of the area. Volunteer on staff was full of information! Nice gift shop to.
  • Wish it had been open, but the exhibits outside were neat.
  • A small railroad museum with a detailed history of early logging in the smokies. Gives a real perspective of what life was like back in the day. Great place to visit.
  • Very nice little museum. Lots of information packed in a small space.
