Tennessee State Museum Office of Extension Services

The office of Extension Services seeks to assist small museums and local historical societies across the state of Tennessee by providing support and advice about a wide range of museum operational and management issues. The office can provide on-site visits and reviews, advice on collections management, registration, object handling, and exhibit techniques. The services provided by the office of Extension Services are free to all not-for-profit museums and historical societies within the state of Tennessee as well as state, federal, or local government-supported museums and historic sites. We can not assist for-profit or individually owned museums.

Areas in which the Office of Extension Services can assist:

Collections Management and Proper Storage
Collections Policy development
Object handling and exhibition
Mission Statement development
New Museum development
Implementing Accepted Museum Standards
Board Development
Deaccessioning Collections artifacts
Adaptive reuse of structures for museum functions

If your museum needs assistance of any type, you may contact Dan Pomeroy, Director of Collections at 615-741-2692 or by email at Dan.Pomeroy@tn.gov.
