The Tennessee State Museum is a great place to learn about the state's history. This museum has a MASSIVE, EXTENSIVE collection of historic Tennessee paintings, silver, ceramics, textiles, furniture, and firearms. Its Civil War holdings of uniforms, battle flags, and weapons are nothing less than AMAZING. If studying history is your thing, you could spend a whole day touring the three levels of this monstrous museum. The photographs I collected today will only give you a very small picture of just a tiny portion of the exhibits. After spending a few hours there, we actually realized that we missed a whole level! I would really like to go back and see what we missed and go through the museum again.
But for now, let's head back in time.
