Unfortunately we went on a Monday which is closed day, however, we were able to walk around the premises and see all the vintage structures. Authentic log cabins; many old tractors for tractor buffs; one room school house; outhouse; caboose; church and so much more. We spent an hour there even tho it was closed. A great photo op for people who love old structures. There are ramps for wheelchair access.

Free! Yes it is. You may make a donation if you wish. It was a nice enjoyable walk through the village of old cabins. It was cloudy and some light rain which only kept the crowds away. We had young children and two teens. There is a lot of history here and not much for 2 and 4 year olds. They enjoyed walking around though they don't really understand any of it. We have been here before. This was the first time here that we did not come during "Uncle Dave Macon Days". If you get a chance come then, but expect a crowd. Overall a great place and wonderful to see the ongoing work that has been done.

We were looking for a cheap and easy way to kill a few hours, and we found it. There are a handful of buildings to look into but not much in the way of interaction. The kids didn't care about looking back in time but it was a good place to relax. The museum is an assortment of odds and ends with little or no explanation of what they are.

Many authentic buildings and log homes have been assembled over the years a few blocks from downtown Murfreesboro (which was originally named Cannonsburgh). A small church hosts weddings and there is a blacksmiths shop and grist mill among others.

Cannonsburgh Pioneer Village is a collection of typical buildings from the history of Middle Tennessee arranged in a logical and informative manner. Building styles are well represented and furnished as if you had stepped directly back in time, yet you are only a block from modern day Murfreesboro. Also displayed is antique farm machinery, a railroad caboose and an old gas station. A functioning blacksmith shop operates open during festivals. Interesting glimpse into the history of Middle Tennessee, yet close to the facilities of a modern city. Allow about 3 hours to see it.
