    Small museum that provides insight into an historical American Indian figure. Learned a lot about Sequoyah in an easy to consume format of exhibits, videos, and placards. Picky's Recommendation: if you're exploring the history of East TN this should be on your list.

    Well-designed museum with interesting interactive displays. Traces the amazing life of the great Cherokee thinker & inventor. Allow 60-90 minutes to explore the exhibits. Beautiful setting.

    Affordable, quick and educational experience. Beautiful artwork and artifacts. If you're unable to visit, I've summed it up for you in these photos.

    I stopped in on a weekday and had this informative museum to myself. The exhibits are perfect; not too detailed and not too superficial. It is very much worth at least 90 minutes of your time.

    Beautiful and interesting place, both inside and outside. We will definitely return when the weather is warmer, for outdoor events.
