Never expected to see anything like this. Just stumbled upon the signage on I-26 near Johnson City, TN while driving to our family gathering in Maryland. This is actually an active dig site for some really interesting fossil specimens. There is a modest admission fee. A short but interesting film explains the site. The exhibits are extremely well done and educational and the staff was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The dig site is still producing specimens and there is a large laboratory area that can be viewed by visitors where specimens are researched, identified, cataloged and prepared for exhibit. Allow at least one hour but more likely around 2 to do it all and do it right.
