Come Travel to Thousands of Years in the Past.

Join us at the Great Smoky Mountains Heritage Center to celebrate the cultural heritage of East Tennessee and the Great Smoky Mountains region. Our gallery exhibits, educational programs, demonstrations and festivals guide you on an historic journey through time to visit the diverse cultures of Townsend and Tuckaleechee Cove.


Transportation Station Now Open

Our latest exhibit gallery, Transportation Station allows the Heritage Center an opportunity to display our extensive collection of 19th and 20th century vehicles.  We will also now be able to bring in guest pieces from automobile collectors in the area as well.  The exhibit focuses on local modes of transportation through the past century and a half.
