We enjoyed this Museum so much, we came back for a full second afternoon. And still didn't get a chance to see it all! So many sections, so many interesting exhibits. Have to hand it to whoever planned this out, the truth of the actual history of Tennessee is told in an unbiased fashion, warts and all. We appreciated the story being told in black and white.
It seems that the museum is being relocated, and some articles were removed from the existing exhibits, but it didn't interfere at all in the stories being told. The Civil War section was especially well done.
Did i mention it was free? So many of the historical exhibits in and around Nashville had admission charges. We passed many up after adding up what the costs would be. Truth be told, we learned all we wanted to at the museum for free. It was uncrowded, unhurried and excellent. Bravo to the planners and staff who have created this wonderful retelling of the history of the land, people and events of Tennessee. Now we have a complete understanding of what Volunteer State means.
We parked at the downtown library building not too far away. It was recommended to us by the kind folks at the Visitors Bureau as 24 hour parking with security. $13 for parking all day. Lots to see and do within a short walk.
