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!

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

Price:
Free except for some temporary exhibitions.

Opening Hours:
Tue-Sat: 10am to 5pm.
