The Tennessee State Library and Archives’ exhibit program has been going strong for over a decade. Thanks to the vast collections within the Library & Archives, we have the privilege to showcase material from a wide array of topics regarding Tennessee history. Visitors can view current exhibits in person during our regular operating hours or explore many exhibits online from the comfort of their own homes. Our digital exhibits include subjects such as the Scopes Trial, Tennessee in the Civil War, and Women’s Suffrage.
We are currently working to re-start our traveling exhibits program and are open to suggestions on what you would like to see. For more information regarding online and in-person exhibits please contact our Exhibits Coordinator at Exhibits.TSLA@tn.gov.
