We drove past this place but, decided to turn around and have a look around. The employees working here are so nice. They have a film which shows how Bush Beans are processed in their factory which is just across the street. We actually ate in the restaurant there after we shopped in the gift shop and the food was... More

We home school our kids and took a field trip to bush's baked beans museum. The museum is very interactive and free! It took us about an hour to hour and half to go through it. That's counting the video they show at the first. The cafe is surprisingly good also.

Bumped into this Museum and Visitor Center on the way to Sevierville, TN and had to stop! What a great set up. There's a very detailed and informative (and even interactive) museum that tells you all about how Bush's came to be. There was also a video that showed how the plant processes the beans but we didn't stay to... More

We were staying at a very nice B&B near Bush's, and we passed this a couple of times before we decided to stop and see what the tour was like. There is no factory tour for health department reasons, but there is a 20 minute video that is very interesting and plenty of photo ops with Duke😜. There is also... More

We rode by this place by accident while going to Pigeon Forge and said when we left we would stop by. We are so glad we did. We went early enough for lunch, Yes, they have a diner for lunch and it was very good. Then on to the museum. There was so much I never knew about an ordinary... More

What a great visit. The four of us (all adults) really enjoyed ourselves at the visitor center and country store. The video they show you about the family and their business is first rate - very professionally done, but still down to earth. The visitor center, including the exhibits, video and even a souvenir photo are all free, but Bush's... More

Located in the village of Chestnut Hill (Dandridge post office), this is one of the great American stories. From beginning to present it is firmly rooted in family and high moral values, and building success through hard work and ingenuity through good times and bad. It is a fascinating story, well told in the museum and film Seeing the care... More

Visited here with my two kids (8 & 9), my parents, and my brothers family (three young kids) on MLK day to get us out and do something fun/educational while school was out. Man, did I hit the nail on the head! First, the tour/visitors museum is FREE and interactive so it's fun AND a great way to learn about... More

Well done little visitor center. Plenty of interactive exhibits for the kids. They offer a short film that everyone should view. Explains the history of the family and the company. There is no charge to visit the museum. Their gift shop is quaint. There is a restaurant also but we didn't eat there. If you are nearby, stop.

Thank Dino O
