    Night at the Museum

    Come howl at the moon as you tour the museum to “visit” with former residents of the house during its nearly 200-year history as portrayed by Berry College Theatre students. Sit and enjoy the autumn evening on the museum campus and enjoy a glass of beer or wine from our cash bar and “trick-or-treat” from the Sugar Rush food truck. Each adult ticket comes with one free drink voucher. Tickets: $10.00 for adults & $5.00 for children. Valid photo identification will be checked at the door to receive a wristband to purchase alcohol.

    Christmas Free Day

    We will host a free event for families and children of all ages on Saturday, December 17th. The museum will show its holiday spirit with a “Christmas Free Day” from 12:00pm-4:00pm that day. Visitors will receive free admission to the museum, which includes a self-guided tour of the house decorated in Moravian style to commemorate the first missionaries to introduce Christmas to the Cherokees. In addition, parents and children will have a chance to create Christmas crafts to keep or share. Children will also be able to write a letter to Santa and mail it to the North Pole at the Chieftains Museum Magic Mailbox!
