Great way to spend my time and $5; we highly recommend. My son and I stopped in on our way from Panther Creek State Park to David Crockett Birthplace State Park. Initially, I wasn't excited about dropping $5 per to get in, but I am very glad we did. The guide working was very knowledgeable and spent about an hour walking us through the facility and answering all our questions. All proceeds go back to the upkeep up the tavern and grounds. I will definitely stop in again on my next pass through Morristown.
Very helpful and knowledgeable people to assist you questions and information. Due to that one fact, I would have to say it is one of my top museum visits. Highly recommend taking the time to see the displays and talk to docents.
