A Museum visit engages students with local artifacts and programming that tell the story of our region. Through hands-on learning, students can look to the past and make our history come alive. We offer a variety of primary sources that help meet TN social studies standards in your classroom.
Field trips are broken into three parts, where students are able to experience several interactive stations.
Permanent & Temporary Exhibits
Learn about the people that developed our region through our “River of Time” exhibit by viewing the history of the Ocoee region from Cherokee settlement to present day.
Enjoy our rotating exhibit area and its corresponding programming.
Learn about the people of our past through traditional Cherokee & Jack Tales featuring the Cleveland Story Telling Guild.
