What a Wonderful surprise to find this large as life museum. It is well laid out, professional presentation of the Tennessee River Valley around Hardin County and speaks for the entire massive river's history. It is strong in many areas such as pre-history archaeology, Indian removal as well as European influence of pioneer settlement, commerce such as steam boating, mussel collection up to current affairs. It was worth every minute of our visit which stretched to nearly two hours.

Dont let the size of the building fool you, this museum is full of history and very nicely laid out. The displays tell the stories of what you are seeing and not just some generic labels. A couple of items are eyebrow raising because one is a first in the US. The fee is very affordable. Nice museum and great staff.

This place is great! Lots of exhibits on display. The things found in and along the Tennessee River are amazing. The lady at the desk was super helpful and wicked nice. Tip: visit Shiloh NMP first, we got a coupon for free entry into the museum. Big dirt parking lot behind the museum for RVs.

I LOVE small museums where you can spend an hour or two, broaden your knowledge of the area and not be rushed and not get tired. This fits the bill. Staff is courteous and helpful. We had a special treat as they had several decorated Christmas trees.
