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.

We went to Bush's Beans Visitor's Center out of curiosity. We had 2 teenagers with us. They did not want to go...thought that it would be boring. They ended up laughing the entire time at the selfies they took, weighing themselves with beans, taking pictures with "Duke", and just walking around and reading everything. We would recommend this venue to... More

"Roll That Beautiful Bean Footage" as Jay says and who can forget cute Duke always trying to sell the family secret recipe! Some might find this place corny but I loved it! From the history of Bush's beans, the family, the whole process, the café, souvenir shop to the cutouts out front for silly photo ops. I just loved it... More

We stumbled upon this great attraction entirely by accident on our way to another destination. We really like Bush beans and their commercials with Duke, the Golden, so we stopped to visit. The grounds were beautifully landscaped, clean and inviting, and across the street is the home plant that still functions today. Inside the museum, which closes at 4 pm... More

We really had alot of fun touring this facility and watching the video. We really enjoy these kinds of things. No admission charge is even better. The staff really made us feel like they wanted us to be there, and wanted us to learn about what they do. We had a really good experience.

Quaint and informative. Very friendly staff. You get a picture with Duke with your visit!! A short drive from Knoxville. Well worth a visit.

We toured this place on a rainy day. It was an interesting self-guided tour with an informative movie first. Received a free photo of us standing with a beautiful fall foliage back drop which also had "Duke" the dog on it. Cute! Local ads in Pigeon Forge had a coupon for a free gift. We redeemed it and received a... More

This was actually my second time to visit. Yes, who would think? IF you are in the area, this is a very nice visit. It is easy to get to. It is clean. It has nice restrooms. It is suitable for children. It is very informative. It may very well answer questions you did not know you had. It is... More
