We tried to go to this museum but there was a big "CLOSED" sign on the door on 9/12/12. Weird that there is a review for 9/11/12 on here from someone else since it looked like the area had not been mowed or taken care of for awhile. Disappointed that we planned to go there and couldn't. I don't know if it a permanent closure or just happened to be closed on Wednesday for an emergency or such.

the guide was extreemly Knowledgeable and brought the life and story of Davey Crockett to life
It portrayed Crockett in a diirent light and outlined the poor and hard early life he had.

Small house museum with very knowledgeable, passionate executive director. We stopped when she was staffing the house--what a treat! She knew lots about the site, its preservation, its visitors, Crockett's role in Tennessee, how the site can be interpreted for children, Crockett's role in American culture, etc. It was clear she takes time to get to know her visitors and customizes experiences for them, and she responds to knowledgeable visitors well (one of us is schooled in history). There's a focus on Davy Crockett, and there's good coverage of his parents and children. Fun display of Crockett memorabilia (including American attempts to memoralize Crockett) downstairs. Gift shop features interesting books, including one about Fess Parker. Worth the short drive off I-81 if you are travelling through--we'd always wanted to go, especially after we visited the Alamo! 1-2 hours a visit for us; perhaps 1 hour or less for others.
