The Tennessee State Museum’s new 137,000-square-foot facility is designed to bring history to life. It includes a “Tennessee Time Tunnel” chronicling the state’s rich history, a hands-on children’s gallery, six changing galleries, a state-of-the-art digital learning center, a grand hall and second-floor veranda. Opening exhibitions include special displays of art, furniture, textiles and photographs produced by Tennesseans, as well as significant artifacts reflective of the state’s history. The Museum’s Civil War holdings of uniforms, battle flags and weapons are among the finest in the nation. Located in the heart of Nashville, at the corner of Rosa Parks Boulevard and Jefferson Street, the new Museum sits at the foot of Capitol Hill and overlooks Bicentennial Mall State Park. There is no admission charge for visitors.
