Bush’s Visitor Center Museum, the bean-tastic creation of Bush’s Beans company, has an updated look, including new interactive digital experiences and a giant bean statue.

The Dandridge, Tenn. museum is located in the original Bush’s General Store, giving it a historical feel along with the modern additions, all geared toward learning about the “beautiful bean.”

Visitors are able to interact with a bean shelf display by clicking on the product they’d like to know more about, including its ingredients, recipe suggestions, and more, or stand on a specialized scale to get their weight told in beans, just as Duke, the company’s talkative dog mascot, did.

Other activities in the museum include a virtual plant tour that gives insights into the manufacturing process.

Visitors can also enjoy southern comfort foods at the onsite Bush’s Family Café, including their famous Pinto Bean Pie.

“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 free.
