About This Spot

The new Tennessee State Museum includes a “Tennessee Time Tunnel” permanent exhibition chronicling the state’s rich history, six temporary exhibitions, a hands-on children’s gallery and a state-of-the-art digital learning center. Exhibitions tell the story of Tennessee through films, interactive and immersive displays, with special presentations of artifacts, art, furniture, textiles, photographs and more, all culled from the Museum’s extensive collection. The Civil War collection of uniforms, battle flags and artillery is among the finest in the nation. In 2018, the changing galleries will host temporary exhibitions on music, art, quilts, and a special commemoration on the state’s history and role in World War I. Located at the corner of Rosa Parks Blvd. and Jefferson Street, there is no admission charge for visitors. Hours are subject to change. For more information:
