“History”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

Received free ticket from Shiloh National Park for the Tennessee River Museum. Lot more that expected. History of the river, civil war and stream boats. Self guided tour so there was no rush. Great place to visits whether your a history buff or not. .

“Sergeant York”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

This museum is a quiet place with wonderful exhibits about the Mississippi Mound Builders, the Trail of Tears, the Civil War on the River and the Tennessee River. There is also a very good exhibit detailing the life of Sergeant Alvin York. A small assortment of gifts are also available.

“Excellent Information”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

Thoroughly enjoyed the carefully planned museum depicting the River history and culture. Especially appreciated the narrative of Sgt. York's early life that had a bearing on the hero he became.

“A little of a lot of things”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

A good small museum. Informative, but not interactive displays. There were several video screens located throughout, but they did not provide further explanation of the displays or info for children who are too impatient to read. They played music and showed pictures of things similar to those in the nearby displays. The layout is fine, but there is little in depth information on a multitude of topics. The temporary display on Cpl York and the WWI was mixed in with displays on archeology and Native Americans. Around the side of the building are fantastic pieces of petrified wood we just happened upon as we went around the block...worth a look. If you have extra time or need an indoor activity you can't beat the price. Don't make a special trip.
