Portrait of happy family in a museum

Most of the fun visitors to the Smokies enjoy lies in creating new memories that last for years to come. However, another aspect of an exciting vacation in the Smokies lies in taking time to enjoy moments of the past that brought us to today. That is why below you will find three unique Pigeon Forge museums that we think does a special job in honoring these timeless memories.

Hollywood Wax Museum

With famous celebrities like Clint Eastwood, Angelina Jolie, Elvis Presley, Charlie Chaplin and Marilyn Monroe, guests to this Pigeon Forge museum will think they have stepped off the Pigeon Forge Parkway and onto a red-carpet of Hollywood greats. Remember to bring your camera, as guests are more than welcome to pose with their favorite Hollywood character! After strolling around the iconic figures from yesterday and today, be sure to swing by Castle of Chaos 5D ride or Hannah’s Maze of Mirrors to add even more fun and excitement to your vacation in the Smokies.

Floyd Garrett Muscle Car Museum

With one of the largest collections of classic cars in the Smoky Mountains, Floyd Garrett Muscle Car Museum is sure to please any car enthusiast in your family. This Pigeon Forge museum houses a total of 90 cars worth over $8 million dollars, including a 69 Boss 429, 67 Firebird and a 71 GTX. The feature car for Floyd Garrett this season is their 1970 Chevelle LS6. Boasting 450 horsepower and a 454 cubic inch engine, this car isn’t letting age slow it down. Be sure to stop in frequently to Floyd Garrett Muscle Car Museum to see their ever changing inventory of classic automobiles.

Tennessee Museum of Aviation

Guests to the Tennessee Museum of Aviation will enjoy a leisurely tour through the marvelous history of their airworthy machines. Exhibits at the Pigeon Forge museum include a variety of cockpits, military vehicles and historic artifacts all centered around the centerpiece collection of Warbirds. The Tennessee Museum of Aviation defines themselves as a ‘living’ Pigeon Forge museum, meaning guests never know which of the historic aircrafts they will have the chance to see in action at an unscheduled demonstration.

After exploring the exciting memories of times past, Timber Tops Luxury Cabin Rentals invites you and your family to create memories of your own inside one of our Gatlinburg cabins or cabins in Pigeon Forge. These fully-equipped homes away from home are perfect for church retreats, family reunions, weekend getaways and honeymoons.
