Mountain Farm Museum

Built in the 19th Century, the buildings that make up the Mountain Farm Museum are fascinating to explore. Visitors to the museum can wander around a Southern Appalachian log cabin, witness a working blacksmith shop, and stroll through a beautiful old barn. As the museum is located inside Great Smoky Mountains National Park, park rangers are almost always around to answer questions visitors may have, and a visitors center sits right next door.

Museum of the Cherokee Indian

Founded in 1948, the Museum of the Cherokee Indian preserves pieces of the tribe's history and exhibits the fine art that is unique to the tribe. Apart from the exhibitions, the museum is also involved in outreach programs that seek to renew an interest in tribal traditions including dance and basket weaving. Visitors can partake in these activities, explore exhibits, and purchase beautiful handmade crafts in the museum store.

Great Smoky Mountains Heritage Center

The Great Smoky Mountains Heritage Center is an institution devoted to the rich and vibrant cultures that have called the Great Smoky Mountain region home. Gaze upon artifacts created by Native American tribes of the area, learn about the Smokies' early European pioneers, and check out the traveling exhibits housed in the museum. Visitors can also explore several historical buildings located throughout the property, each of which is decorated as it would have been at the time it was built.
