Difficulty: 0

Hello, my name is Grace, and Im an Educator here at the Tennessee State Museum.

We would first like thank you for taking your time out of your

busy schedule to come and visit us.

Our Educators offer tours here at the Tennessee State Museum and at the Capitol.

This video has information to help your visit be as smooth and enjoyable as possible.

The Tennessee State Museum is located at 1000 Rosa L Parks Blvd. in Nashville.

When visiting the Museum, students will be dropped off at the west entrance on Rosa L Parks Blvd.

From there, one of our museum educators will lead your group into the education suite for

orientation and then assist with the beginning of your field trip.

We ask that you have a printed copy of your reservation confirmation readily available.

If your group would like store lunches at the Museum, we do have an unrefrigerated storage facility.

Unfortunately there is nowhere to eat indoors, but if you would like to picnic outside, we

have a covered patio area directly outside of our education suite, as well as the Bicentennial

Park just next door to the Museum.

The Tennessee State Capitol is located at 600 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.

Students will offload at the street level, and then your group will be escorted up the

stairs to the west entrance of the building facing the State Supreme Court and the State Library

and Archives.

If mobility issues prevent a student or chaperone from being able to use the stairs, the Motlow tunnel entrance

on Dr. Martin Luther King Blvd. may be used.

Once inside the building, visitors 18 and up will need to go through a security checkpoint

including removing all metal, and a bag search.

Students younger than 18 will be instructed to simply walk through single file.

Bus drivers, please remember that you will not be able to park at the Museum.

For both sites, you will need your Museum-issued parking permit placed on your dashboard for

parking at Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in the outside lane, between 6th and 7th Avenue.

Personal vehicles are not allowed to park with the buses.

Chaperones may park at the museum on a first come first serve basis, or use

to find other conveniently located parking.

We know that any great field trip depends on great chaperones, and we recommend one

for every ten students, but trust you to know the needs of your students better than we do.

Please have a safe, fun experience with your students and feel free to visit us any time.

If youre running late, we understand that things happen in between points A and B.

We only ask that you let our staff know, so that we can make adjustments as needed.

For more details on your field trip, please visit us at or reach out to

our staff with the contact information on your screen.

We will be happy to help with any questions you might have.

We cant wait to see you all here for your field trip at the Tennessee State Museum and

the Tennessee State Capitol.

See you all soon!
