Postponed - The Presidential Birthday Party - Sat., Dec 29th:

This event has been postponed due to the federal government shutdown.  As we partner with the National Park Service on this event and they are on furlough during the shutdown. The event will hopefully be rescheduled for a future date.

January Hours:

During January, The Museum does its deep cleaning and some gallery renovation.  We will be open between 11AM-4PM on weekdays this month, but some galleries may be closed off at different times.  You are welcome to visit - just be understanding of the cleaning process.  If you wish to call before coming, 423-636-1558. ​

Education and Schools

We welcome many young visitors every week, and school field trips are a great learning experience.  Home schoolers are also welcome to include us in their learning plans. Contact Betty Fletcher, Operations Director, for more information.

Mornings At The Museum features a unique learning experience for hundreds of Greeneville City Schools and Greene County Schools students.  Characters from history serve as storytellers and tour guides for a real-life glimpse at history.  

​​The Greene Experience Gallery takes children back to pioneer times.  this gallery is child-sized but big on adventure.  Outside the gallery is a mural painting of David Crockett's life story. The gallery features a log cabin, covered wagon, Indian huts, stuffed animals, bonnets, coonskin caps and Klondike Mike, our giant Grizzly Bear (who makes quite an impression!).  The view from inside the bear's den is a kid favorite.

The Presidential Easter Egg Hunt each year is a joint effort with the National Park Service at the President Andrew Johnson Homestead near The Museum.  

Our Children 's Christmas Ornament Workshop in cooperation with the Greeneville Youth Builders brings art from the youngsters to our museum Christmas tree.
