New Tennessee State Museum Opening Date

Grand Opening Events Scheduled for Weekend of October 4-7.

Museum to Continue to Offer Free Admission.

August 13, 2018 - We are proud to announce that the new Tennessee State Museum, on the corner of Rosa L. Parks Blvd. and Jefferson Street at Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park, is scheduled to open to the public on Thursday, October 4, 2018. Grand opening events will take place throughout the weekend.

“Since we first started working on this project, the plan was to build a 100-year museum to showcase the rich history of our state and provide a memorable experience to visitors of all ages,” Gov. Bill Haslam said in a press release announcing the opening. “It is exciting that we’re only months away from opening the doors to this important educational asset for Tennessee.” 

The Museum hosted its final event in its former location in the James K. Polk building in early May. Throughout the summer, artifacts and exhibitions are being installed in the new location.

“A lot of work has gone into not only building the new Museum but carefully transporting all of the historic art, artifacts, documents, and more that has been part of the Museum over the years,” Ashley Howell, executive director of the Tennessee State Museum, said in the release. “Everything is leading up to the opening of the new Museum, and we couldn’t be prouder to share Tennessee’s story with the hundreds of thousands of people who walk through the doors of our new state-of-the-art facility. Best of all, the State Museum will continue to offer free admission for our many visitors.”

Additional information about grand opening events and activities will be announced in the coming weeks.
