Side detours leading into six different galleries will also allow visitors to explore specific periods and themes more deeply – including our Civil War history, music, art and cultural issues of the day.

The Tennessee State Museum will also feature a diverse mix of traditional and new-technology experiences, from straightforward gallery displays, to interactive exhibits that will include spectacular images, audio and film.

Large-scale immersive environments will give visitors a sense of place and evoke emotion as part of their experience. These exhibits are designed to touch all senses and inspire our visitors to share and engage more personally with our rich content beyond the museum’s walls, via social media and smart devices.
