Lots of information and history on the Bush family and the beginning of their business. I didn't realize all the different items that Bush's offers. I'll be on the lookout for them in the grocery stores..

Great movie about how the company got started. Fun history at the museum and fun photo spots. The store's prices were very reasonable. Only thing that could have made it better would have been to have live Duke dog to pet.

Exit 432. I used my GPS with this address: 3901 US-411, Dandridge, TN 37725. Don't forget to visit the nearby Harrisburg covered bridge just a few miles from Bushes . It is in Seiver County next door
Is it handicapped accessible?

About an hour. It depends on how your own pace. Lots of things to look at in the museum and then the 20 minute presentation (movie) about Bush Beans. You may also want to eat lunch while there.
