This place is a mess! There is no flow to the layout. No one tells you where to go, the front desk person barely looks up. The current exhibit is of African American artists. The art is okay but there is not a lot of...More

As my time in Tennessee comes to an end, I thought it only proper to work my way backwards to Clarksville’s history to gain more knowledge. The Customs House Museum and Cultural Center was a jewel of a find. In the Orgain Gallery, a special...More
