The new museum is beautiful and gives a comprehensive overview of Tennessee history. There are a lot of videos and primary documents/artifacts. I could’ve spent a whole day slowly reading everything. It’s very well done and plus it’s free!!
I've been in the old facility many times, and the difference is mind-boggling. No more frustration with parking, or even difficulty finding the museum. Easy access and hours of enjoyment examining the relics of this state's rich past. So much to see, you can't experience...More

Well organized and curated.
Quite the large structure.
Take a look a the panels and monuments in the park across the way.

This is a great new space with beautiful views. The layout is nice. The old museum seemed to have more stuff. The mummys are bot there anymore as well as other items. But its definitely worth 3 hours of your time.

Also, there may be parking spots available at at the Bicentennial State Park which is few blocks away. Nashville has a free bright green bus that you can pick up near there and it will take you uptown.
