We went there to kill an hour and spent 3. I was interested because my husband worked on the design and construction of the plant, and after hearing about it second hand for years, I wanted to see it personal like. We started with the video, which was very interesting and humerous, and which added a basis for the museum.... More

While in Dandridge, we decided to isit the Bush Bean Cafe and Museum since there wasn't much to do...thinking it would be lame. We actually enjoyed the film, the museum and the cafe. The tour guides were very nice and professional. We bought a couple of tee shirts and went to the cafe for some sandwiches and there were delish.... More

We were staying in a cabin in Pigeon Forge and visiting attractions in the area. We decided to travel approximately 13 miles to Chestnut Hill to visit the Bush Bean Visitor Center and Museum. There were 6 adults in our group with varying interests and we all found something interesting during our tour. We are making a scrapbook of the... More

Stopped in on our way to Gatlinburg, TN. It was a very nice little museum! Lots of interactive displays. Staff was very helpful and informative. Our group ranged in age from 81 down to 15, and we all enjoyed ourselves! The gift shop is very nice, as well.

Have lived in Tennessee all my life and had no idea that this little place located a short drive from Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg is where it all began with the Bush family several generations ago. This is a great place to visit if you enjoy history, and how it all started. Children will also have fun. The employees make you feel... More

Went with three kids ages 8,10, and 12. There's a museum with two short movies and hands on displays. There's also an interactive activity with questions for the kids. My engineer husband enjoyed it as well. The kids favorite part was using the old fashioned cash register. It's a drive from Gatlinburg but a beautiful trip. Even checked out a... More

Okay, we had passed by here several times on our way to the Gatlinburg/ Pigeon Forge area, and finally decided to stop by on a rainy day. It was more fun than I ever thought it would be. A film introduces the history of Bush Beans and the shows how it has changed through the years. Next is a film... More

I misread the website for the Forbidden Caverns(didn't open until April) and on the way back I made a wrong turn and ran into the visitor center. We were all surprised that the Bush's Beans plant and museum was in the area. The museum was very nice and gave LOTS of history on the family and their history. What really... More

We ran across this quite by accident and were pleasantly surprised. The overview of the plant process was interesting and informative. It was refreshing to see a company with strong family values and a strong commitment to the environment. We enjoyed the gift shop and the cafe. The staff was very friendly and we enjoyed our souvenir picture with Duke.
