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.
