Tennessee State Museum

New Construction

Nashville, Tennessee

Overview

HGA was hired as design architect and museum planner to create an inspirational and distinctive state-of-the-art cultural facility in Nashville. The new museum will illuminate the rich and diverse history of the citizens of Tennessee and enliven Nashville’s Bicentennial Mall, making it a destination for generations to come. The facility will improve the visitor experience and engage the public in the history and significance of the State of Tennessee through collections, exhibitions, programs and events. Its priceless collections from Tennessee’s history will be displayed in flexible exhibit spaces and will offer opportunities for learning through programming, lectures, symposia and interactive learning spaces available to teachers, students and the general public. Strict adherence to the highest quality standards for museum facilities will allow the institution to borrow and display a range of works from other international institutions.
