Travel Back Through Time With A Visit To North Carolina’s Oconaluftee Mountain Farm Museum
Avid fans of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park will agree that the remote treasures found deep in the Oconaluftee Valley in the park are a must-see with any first or return trip to the country’s most visited national park. Attendance at the Great Smoky Mountains National Park completely dwarfs that of other national parks by almost four times each year. In 2020, park attendance exceeded 12 million visitors, compared to the second most visited national park in the U.S., Yellowstone at 3.8 million visitors.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
The Mountain Farm Museum and the Visitor Center are open daily from mid-March through mid-November (and also on Thanksgiving Day) from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Learn more with a visit to the National Park Service website.
