This was a nice downtown stop. It adds to the stroll of a shopping and eating day. It is only average, but still worth a stop as you walk the downtown

Free Museum
Nov 2020
The Heritage Museum is a free museum that includes a few different small collections. There is a room about local trains, a patchwork of war displays, and the history of the area. Of particular interest to me was the display about the giant touring pig from Hendersonville, relics from summer camps past, and the train exhibit. I can't say that the bulk of this collection sustains anything higher than lukewarm interest, but it's hard to criticize a free museum. Give it a go if you have nothing to do, but don't go out of your way to see this one. The subject matter just isn't that engaging.

Interesting Museum

I got there on Saturday morning around 11:00 and since I was the only person I was lucky enough to get a private tour from Barbara. She is a gem and a wealth of knowledge. The museum is much larger than I expected and I love that it's there through the efforts of the locals, both past and present.

It was a dreary rainy day and this place really was an unexpected find. What a great historical find with a very knowledgeable staff. The exhibits were very professional and the entire property was very well maintained.

History is Fun

My husband and I spent a couple of hours here one afternoon. We were delighted to find such a variety of exhibits. We are part-time residents of Hendersonville and knew very little of its history. Now, we have learned a great deal.

I stopped in with friends during the Apple Festival. It was nice to be able to walk around and learn a little. Amazed about how big the pig was.

Mr. Tanner at the visitors center suggested we stop and see the museum. It is well worth visiting and is free.
