The Tennessee State Museum was created in 1937 to house World War I mementoes and other collections of documents, paintings, and historical objects. The Tennessee State Museum currently occupies three floors. The museum has six permanent exhibits.
The Tennessee 4 Me Website is sponsored by the Tennessee State Museum. When finished, it will contain nine permanent exhibits. Like exhibits at a museum, each exhibit can help you imagine what it was like living in Tennessee at different times in the past. You can view old paintings, old photographs, old documents, and old objects. But the website gives you even more information to explore. And you can visit anytime you want to!
