    This is a neat little museum that we stopped at on our road trip. The curator was very knowledgeable and flexible with guided tour vs. wander around and look at stuff operation. We opted to meander about and look at stuff. We were allowed to touch/handle almost everything there, which was really cool! Learned a lot about Davy Crocket and thoroughly enjoyed our visit!

    Interesting and informative, and a perfect day trip for home school. Lots of extras here to fuel the imagination of history buffs young and old.

    This would have been skipped if not for the sign along the interstate. I thought, "Wait, THAT Crockett?" and yes, this is related to the pioneer Davy Crockett who was killed at the Alamo. A lovely friendly woman at the desk who informed me that they only accept cash or checks, which is quite 1800s if you ask me. I had already used up my cash (need to get more) and have Google Pay or cards. Oh, well. Thankfully, you can still walk the grounds for free and there's enough to see there too. This is the site of the original Crockett Tavern which was established and operated by John and Rebecca Crockett, the parents of David Crockett (1786-1836). It was the boyhood home of the pioneer and political leader of Tennessee. It is located along what was then the main trail from the east to the new frontier which is now US-11 and I-81. Lots to see with artifacts, a Conestoga wagon and memorabilia from the period. I found it interesting and $5 per person is a reasonable entry fee. Parking is a little limited but otherwise I'm glad I spotted the sign.

    Wish google maps reflected winter hours. Closed. Not open until may. Also they were out of free brochures- boo!

    A wonderful place to visit... the museum had closed as we were there after hours, so I took a few photos. It seems that Crockett Tavern was the boyhood home of Davy Crockett. I am so glad we stopped to see this historic place.
