Great Smoky Mountains Heritage Center

Museum in East Tennessee

On the outskirts of Great Smoky Mountains National Park, this small museum spotlights Native American peoples of East Tennessee as well as the region's mountain culture. The exhibits aren't super in-depth or wide-ranging, but if this is your first visit to the area they provide a nice introduction to East Tennessee. In the Historic Village out back you can explore 13 furnished buildings showcasing various eras.
