State of Tennessee
141,000 sq. ft., 2-Stories
Everton Oglesby Architects, PLLC, HGA
The Tennessee State Museum is a new two-story, 141,000-sq. ft. building dedicated to preserving and interpreting the history of the state of Tennessee and its people.
The facility provides the State of Tennessee with a freestanding, contemporary space built to last several lifetimes. The building reflects classical architectural design and features modern and progressive exhibits, community, and event space. The interior and exterior are composed of 100-year building materials, including limestone, granite, marble, bronze, limestone pillars, and white oak millwork throughout. High glass walls are a prominent characteristic of the building.
The museum includes a 250-seat digital learning center, a children's educational suite, and a grand entrance hall that can also serve as an event space.
The museum’s second floor houses most of its collections, which range in subject from a set of mastodon bones to U.S. Civil War battle flags. Museumgoers can move from the geological formation of the area thousands of years ago to the first contact between indigenous Americans and Europeans up to the present day.
