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 events feature 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 real-life glimpses at history.
The Greene Experience Gallery takes children back to pioneer times.Though child-sized, this gallery is big on adventure! It features a log cabin, covered wagon, Native American huts, stuffed animals, bonnets, coonskin caps, and Klondike Mike, a giant stuffed Grizzly Bear! A painted mural which illustrates David Crockett's life story adorns the adjacent hallway.
