From the pre-historic villages of Native Americans through early 1900s, Tennessee State Museum traces the rich and diverse history of the land that came to be called Tennessee. The powder horn of Davy Crocket, the Medal of Honor awarded to Sgt. Alvin York, the hat of President Andrew Jackson and artifacts representing the daily life of ordinary folks are on display. Military history buffs will be especially interested in the military section, which chronicles Tennessee's involvement from the Spanish American War to World War II.
