The Tennessee State Museum hosts a wide range of FREE, fascinating events and educational programs throughout the year. Advance reservations are not required, unless indicated on the listing. For seated events, seats are provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
The saber-tooth cat has become a Nashville icon, and while everyone recognizes the Predators logo and their big blue mascot, Gnash, the archaeological and paleontological story behind these symbols isn’t widely known. Join us for a Tennessee Archaeology Awareness Month Lunch & Learn program with Aaron Deter-Wolf, prehistoric archaeologist with the Tennessee Division of Archaeology, and Larisa DeSantis, Associate Professor in Biological Sciences at Vanderbilt University. We’ll discuss the story of the saber-tooth discovery in downtown Nashville, and what new scientific research reveals about the lives and diets of ice age predators.
The event will be in-person in the Museum's Digital Learning Center, and will also be livestreamed on the Museum’s website at TNMuseum.org/Videos.
For those attending the in-person event at the Museum, a free guided tour of the First Peoples exhibition will be offered immediately following the program.
