Many artifacts on display to show a difficult but happy way of life. Don't miss it to learn about the area.

I stop in every time they are open. New things in the gift shop all the time, especially maps. Spending a little cash here is a rewarding way to support the park. Super friendly staff, each and every time.

This is the perfect place for learning about the ways of the people in the area at this particular time. There is a lot more in the building behind the house and there are usually people there that can tell stories about the items on display. It is very interesting and the people are very inviting.

While visiting with friends it was recommended that we go to Cades Cove. I entered it into the GPS and we were off. All I found at first was the Cade Cove Museum. So, we figured we’d stop there and see that and continue on. It’s a fairly small building along the Parkway. We went in, it’s free, and looked around to get a feel for the area. We were then given directions on how to get to Cades Cove.

The small museum is located in the Thompson-Brown cabin. The cabin is still located on its original foundation in its original location, right next to Maryville College. It's small, but has a lot of info and artifacts relating to Cades Cove and the families who lived there. The volunteer I met was very knowledgeable and helpful. It's definitely worth your time if you're interested in the history of the area.
