The Tennessee State Museum chronicles Tennessee’s history by guiding visitors through the museum’s collection using exhibition galleries, a digital learning center, and a Grand Hall.

The mission of the Museum is to procure, preserve, exhibit, and interpret objects which relate to the social, political, economic, and cultural history of Tennessee and Tennesseans.

The museum’s exhibitions include historical artifacts and displays of art, silver, weapons, furniture, textiles, and photographs. The Museum’s Civil War holdings consist of uniforms, battle flags, and weapons. 

The State Museum, which first opened in 1937, gained a new larger facility in 2018, capable of hosting large reproductions of a historic print shop, a painting gallery, a grist mill, and much more.
