A 501 c 3 organization located just one mile from the Townsend entrance to the National Park, the Heritage Center offers indoor museum galleries as well as an Appalachian great heritage containing historic structures covering the time period of 1802-1960. The village was my favorite area. We could have spent much more time examining all the artifacts, but we were anxious to get into the park.
I loved seeing the history of the Native Americans who inhabited the land long before us. This is a pretty cool place to see some of the historical artifacts and experience some of the cultural norms of the area.
The whole staff was wonderful and knowledgeable and so friendly! The great thing about them was that they were just as good as some of the Cades Cove attractions but were clustered together, making them much easier to navigate, plus no big crowds!! The curators have presented a nice collection of Great heritage American artifacts discovered in the area as well as a nice collection of original buildings from the area.
It was a very nice educational outing for the kids, as well as adults. It has a nice display of Native American artifacts and Appalachian displays inside and does a good job at chronicling the history of the area. The Museum and the way it is laid out is spectacular!
Admission fees are reasonable, and the staff is friendly and helpful. It is well worth the time to visit and the small entrance fee. Great heritage a hidden Gem in the mountains. There is an indoor museum with many artifacts and an outdoor area with original buildings. There is also a small amphitheater for events throughout the year. Connect with the spirit and history of Townsend, Cades Cove, and the Great Smoky Mountains at the Great Smoky Mountains Heritage Center.
Cannot wait to bring my grandchildren to see this treasure. The outside original structures that had been moved to the site were impressive, with informative details provided on signs. It appears they have moved some original log style buildings from the area to this one location, offering a neat little "tour" of they way folks lived in that area a century or more ago.
And how it was like a timeline of history. The pricing is reasonable and their gift shop has a decent selection of "dust-collectors" for you to remember your trip. The main gallery and transportation gallery add context to the experience.
We decided to go here on a day when rain was threatening.
We spent a great hour and a half at Great Smoky Mountains Heritage Center.
The staff was very friendly, helpful, and professional.
