The Funk Heritage Center features a film on the Cherokee Indians, a room displaying their artifacts, and a couple of rooms full of native art. Perhaps the most interesting room contains an extensive tool collection.

This one of those amazing small museums that pack a lot into a visit. History of indigenous people and the trail of tears, along with a great tool collection, make it a very worthwhile place to visit. Great staff give lots of Southern hospitality.

This museum is excellent. The exterior of the building is built to resemble a native settlement. Nice exhibits in the Hall of the Ancients with time-line progressive life-like dioramas. Well worth a visit. The tool collection has to be the nicest displayed and most complete...More
