TEMPORARILY CLOSED Tennessee State Museum

TEMPORARILY CLOSED Tennessee State Museum

“In an abundance of caution for the protection of our visitors and our collection, the Tennessee State Museum will close to the public effective at 5pm, March 13 and remain closed through April 24. A public closure allows for the proper disinfecting protocol without damage to the artifacts and their displays. The closure also includes the Military Branch of the Museum at War Memorial. We will continue to monitor the situation regarding the COVID-19 virus. Please visit the Museum’s website at TNMuseum.org and our social media channels for updates on our reopening.”

Opening October 4, 2018, the new 137,000 square foot Tennessee State Museum is designed to bring history to life. It includes a “Tennessee Time Tunnel” chronicling the state’s rich history and leading visitors through the museum’s permanent collection, a hands-on children’s gallery, six rotating galleries,  state-of-the-art digital learning center and a two-story Grand Hall. Exhibitions include significant artifacts related to the state’s history, along with displays of art, furniture, textiles, and photographs produced by Tennesseans. 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 Capital Hill at Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park.
