The Crockett Tavern Museum is a history museum in Morristown, Tennessee, that commemorates the American folk hero David "Davy" Crockett. The museum was started in 1955, when a popular craze over the legacy of Davy Crockett was at its peak, and opened in 1958.[2] It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in December 2013.[1]

The museum's main building is a log cabin structure built in the 1950s as a representation of the tavern that Davy Crockett's father, John Crockett, established in 1794 at the approximate location of the modern museum.[2][3]

The museum is operated by the Hamblen County chapter of the Association for the Preservation of Tennessee Antiquities.[2][3]
