The Crockett Tavern Museum is a history museum in Morristown, Tennessee, that commemorates the American folk hero David "Davy" Crockett. The museum was started in 1955, when a popular craze over the legacy of Davy Crockett was at its peak, and opened in 1958. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in December 2013.

The museum's main building is a log cabin structure built in the 1950s as a representation of the tavern that Davy Crockett's father, John Crockett, established in 1794 at the approximate location of the modern museum.
The museum is operated by the Hamblen County chapter of the Association for the Preservation of Tennessee Antiquities.

  • The naturalist-historian was very knowledgable about the time period and locality. I was very impressed! I would go back. There was a school class ahead of us and the log book shows people from every state come through the Davy Crockett Tavern Museum. There is a gift store too.
  • This was a fun museum and very cool. I remember going and seeing old soap and spices, I also remember the taxidermy fox😂😂.very informative and detailed. Very cool and if your looking for a fun site and your on east side of town I really recommend this
