The Tennessee State Museum strives to maintain a safe, comfortable, and respectful environment for all visitors. We also take our role as guardians of the objects in our collection very seriously. Therefore we have put policies in place to help protect our exhibitions from the possibility of potential harm.

The museum provides lockers at the Visitors’ Desk.  All parcels, umbrellas, and bags larger than 11” x 15” must be checked, including backpacks and backpack-style child carriers.

Photography is allowed in the museum, but you must turn your flash off. Some special exhibits also prohibit photography. When a special exhibition prohibits photography, a sign stating the ban will be placed at the beginning of the exhibition.
