A Venue Surrounded by Art & History

The Tennessee State Museum is conveniently located in downtown Nashville in the Polk Cultural Center (the same building which houses the Tennessee Performing Arts Center) at Fifth Avenue and Deaderick Street. The museum is often cited as Tennessee’s version of the Smithsonian Institution. With its large collection of objects, furniture, paintings and textiles, The museum is a stunning showcase for the Volunteer State’s rich history. The museum’s Changing Galleries offer temporary exhibits on history, art, and culture related to Tennessee and its people.

Space to Suit Your Event

Both the museum’s atmosphere and its exhibitions offer unique surroundings and options for a range of events from meetings to cocktail receptions, banquets, private dinners, wedding receptions, multi-media presentations, lecture series, film screenings and musical performances. Our event staff will work enthusiastically with your organization to create a most memorable event.
