This museum is fantastic! There are so many wonderful pieces and exhibits. They offer new exhibits every few months and have a working trade show in the fall. It is a wonderful place to learn about local history as well as general Tennessee history. The ladies who work there are very kind, helpful, and informative. The admission is only $5 per person and worth every penny! I highly recommend making a part of a day trip to the Athens Tennessee area!
