Ok, is it worth the drive? Absolutely! This was a lot of fun. The company's growth reflects a lot of American history, and their museum and visitor center has more than enough historical info! The family Bible, the decision to focus on beans, it's really...More

Exit 432. I used my GPS with this address: 3901 US-411, Dandridge, TN 37725. Don't forget to visit the nearby Harrisburg covered bridge just a few miles from Bushes . It is in Seiver County next door
Is it handicapped accessible?

About an hour. It depends on how your own pace. Lots of things to look at in the museum and then the 20 minute presentation (movie) about Bush Beans. You may also want to eat lunch while there.
