Museum

The museum at the park contains exhibits which tell of the different aspects of the life of Davy Crockett. Visitors can learn a lot about Crockett the hunter, the politician, the businessman and the legendary hero as portrayed in the Walt Disney movie of the 1950's. 

A short video about Davy Crockett can be viewed in the museum during business hours. In addition to the museum, a cabin replica is a short walking distance from the museum.
