Where can you go to see the family home cabin of Mark Twain, peacocks, the Appalachia Hall of Fame and a slice of mountain history? Try the Museum of Appalachia in Norris, Tennessee. If you're traveling on I-75 take exit 122, turn away from the Wal-Mart and follow the signs.
You'll drive into early Appalachia life as you pull onto the tree lined driveway at the entrance sign. Slow down to see the goats on the right. The parking lot is in front of you. A few chickens may be wandering there so be careful as you park.
The tour of the Museum of Appalachia begins in the gift shop and restaurant. Pick up a brochure when you pay your admission fee. It answers most of your questions and tells you about the stops as you walk along the way.
Some places to sit and rest are available on the walk. Visitors who need accessibility information are advised to check the website for the Museum of Appalachia.
The paper brochure you received at the entrance is your tour guide. Walk at your own pace and be prepared to take a couple of hours or an afternoon. Of course, you could visit for less time than that but it's not recommended.
You could easily spend a full day exploring the Museum of Appalachia. In fact, a lot of people do and then they come back again to see more.
