Upcoming Exhibits

One of the primary ways the Museum of East Tennessee History fulfills its mission to preserve, interpret, and promote the history of Tennessee—and especially the history of East Tennessee—is through an active exhibition program. These award-winning exhibitions often focus on a particular aspect of East Tennessee's culture and heritage and, since they change frequently, visitors are encouraged to return often to explore the region's past.

The exhibitions listed below are currently in development, and as such, information is subject to change. Please contact us for the most up-to-date information.
