This was a surprising gem! It's an incredible museum that is so well done. Had so much information and great displays. I loved the videos along the way that explained the different areas and were interesting for my kids. Since it's free, I wasn't sure how good it would be but it rivaled any I've paid for. It was truly a spectacular museum and I highly recommend it!

A very satisfying experience covering the history of the State. Brought the History alive. We didn’t get to half of the museum. In two hours and if I have the opportunity while I’m here I will definitely go see more. Free entrance, free parking, across street from Bicentennial Park, Farmer’s Market and near State Capitol building. Suffragette exhibit on temporary display. Go here!

Really great exhibits for everyone. It’s got history, art, geography and great views from the balcony. We spent approximately 2-3 hours in this place. Such a marvelous place. It’s a must visit when in Nashville. Friendly employees. Plenty of security presence inside the museum.

What a amazing place!!! We was not expecting such an intense educational experience regarding the history of TN and the USA. The exhibits were top-notch and extremely interesting and informative. My American husband himself learned a ton and me being European, well I was just in awe learning about the Native Americans and how African Americans were treated back in the 1800's onwards. I highly recommend you visit this place and especially as its free to enter which is pretty amazing to say the least. Expect to spend at least 3 hours here. Toilets are clean and there are lockers to store your bags and buggies etc. There is not a cafe open here but a couple minutes walk you're at the Farmers Market for drinks and food. You have to wear a face mask too due to Covid19 and there are hand sanitizer stations everywhere.
