This museum is very small and there is not much on display. One of the rooms has nothing to do with President Johnson. 15 minutes was about all it took. Do not go out of your way for this.

Found it unique that the museum is manned by history student majors at Tusculum College. The displays that hold his valuable items were hand made by many of these students. Easy to walk and tour alone or ask for assistance, every thing is labeled well....More

We learned so much "lost" history just by touring this site. This is recommended for a rainy, cool day.

Very nice tour conducted by park ranger. This is something you have to experience to enjoy. My wife got a wasp sting and the ranger was right on it with a remedy ...... Loved our tour

Interesting man, more so than I'd realized previously. The 1851 Homestead is well preserved. Early home of marginal interest, but a good Johnson personal & political chronology on placards inside. His tailor shop is the most interesting-it's inside the Visitor Center.

When you visit Greeneville, be sure you include this spot. The exhibits are enjoyable. The maps provided by the town do not lead you here so it is hard to find
