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.

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.
