One of the best history centers we have visited. We learned so much about Tennessee's past----movies, artifacts, photos---even an old trolley and soda fountain. Great fun.

We spent an hour in this beautiful museum on Sunday morning. It is located in the former TVA headquarters. There is a fine array of displays on all aspects on East Tennessee, history, culture, society, music,. Everything is well illuminated, and the space is very generous in a very attractive building.

The museum has an award-winning permanent exhibition that is well worth visiting for an enriched view of East Tennessee.

Free on Sundays. Minor fee other times.
Well layed out, giving insight into Knoxville area history. They even have an old Knoxville trolley you can step into. A few exhibits change.

I've walked by this place for years but never gone in. I had some family in town recently and decided to check it out as it is free on Sundays and we were looking for something to do on a rainy Sunday afternoon. I'm glad we went. You can tell a lot of work and effort has gone into the exhibits. They are very well done and quite nice. We wandered around for about 45 minutes, but I would like to go back when I have more time.
