The farmer's market at The Museum's Gertrude M. Fox Park happens each Tuesday and Friday, 2-5PM.
Some New Recognition:
At a banquet in Knocville on May 14th, the Greeneville Greene County History Museum was awarded an Award of Distinction for achieving Gold certification status with the American Association of State and Local History, the only one in Tennessee and one of seven in the US. We also received History in The Media awards for our Babb Homestead time lapse video (seen on this page) and for the "My Favorite Thing" promotional campaign. Our thanks to the East Tennessee Historical Society for the honors.
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.
