Each week on the Junior Curators blog, we travel back in time to a different place in Tennessee history. Stories may be about a famous person, place or event from Tennessee’s past. They will include things like priceless artifacts, pictures, videos, and even some games. Be sure to better understand the story by answering the questions at the end of each post.
After learning the story, be sure to share what you've learned with your parents, family, or friends. Try making your own exhibit about it, shooting a movie, or writing a story about it. Let your creativity run wild!

Welcome to your first day on the job, Junior Curator! As a Junior Curator, you can help tell the many stories about the Tennessee State Museum. The collection is where we keep all of our artifacts. Artifacts are the things we show at the museum. We have so many artifacts that they can’t all go on display at the same time. Think ‘Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark’ warehouse. Okay, it isn’t THAT big. So we started putting things online for everyone to see! To learn about some of the artifacts we have, click this link or the link below to do a virtual scavenger hunt through our collection:
