To learn some facts about Tennessee's history you definitely have to visit the Tennessee State Museum. Not because there is no entrance (you have to pay for the parking ticket anyway, if you're with car) but because the museum has much to offer.

It has three floors but it doesn't take more than an hour and a half to cover everything. Watch the videos in some sections, they are pretty good. From Native Americans, to early settlers and pioneers to the modern aspect of the state, this museum shows something from each era. Don't miss it!

5th Ave N & Deaderick St, Nashville, TN 37219, USA

Free except for some temporary exhibitions.

 Tourists flock to Fort Nashborough, a reconstruction of the first settlement of the site of Nashville and another faithful replica of the Greek Parthenon.  But it is the Grand Ole Opry that remains the biggest draw, either for the traditional Saturday night shows or just a tour of the slightly garish theater. There is a huge shopping mall and for more music, the bars along Lower Broadway [...]
