The 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 though the Museum's permanent collection, a hands-on children's gallery, six rotating galleries, a 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 at 1000 Rosa L. Parks Boulevard at Jefferson Street, the Museum sits at the foot of Capitol Hill on the northwest corner of Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park. There is no admission charge for visitors.
