Tennessee is now home to a new attraction described by Bush’s Beans as ‘the world’s most beautiful bean museum’, which is part of a revitalised visitor centre.

Located in Dandridge, the museum celebrates Bush’s history and “all things beans”, says a news release. It offers an educational experience through digital exhibits, with guests learning all about beans.

Situated in the original Bush’s general store, the new “bean-tastic museum” features a reimagined bean scale that guests can stand on and find out their weight in beans.

Visitors can interact with a digital shelf of Bush’s products, clicking on them to discover the ingredients and more. The museum’s refreshed theatre experience houses a virtual plant tour showcasing the manufacturing process.

“I am proud to see my family’s legacy of spreading bean goodness portrayed in a fun and interactive way at the new Bush’s visitor center museum,” said Drew Everett, Bush’s chairman and fourth-generation member of the Bush family.

“As a family-owned business, we are thrilled to be able to share our history and welcome our visitors to Chestnut Hill to experience bean goodness first-hand.”

Admission to the museum is included in the price of entry to the visitor center, which is home to a general store and the Bush’s Family Café. Here, guests can enjoy southern comfort food, such as the famous pinto bean pie.

Guy Fieri, the chef, restaurateur and TV host, recently launched a food-focused family entertainment centre (FEC) in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee called Guy Fieri’s Downtown Flavortown.
