EOA Architects paired with museum designer HGA to create an inspirational and distinctive state-of-the-art cultural facility in Nashville, Tennessee. The new museum will illuminate the rich and diverse history of the citizens of Tennessee and enliven Nashvilles Bicentennial Mall, making it a destination for generations to come. The facility will improve the visitor experience and engage the public in the history and significance of the State of Tennessee through collections, exhibitions, programs and events. Its priceless collections from Tennessees history will be displayed in flexible exhibit spaces and will offer opportunities for learning through programming, lectures, symposia and interactive learning spaces available to teachers, students and the general public. Strict adherence to the highest quality standards for museum facilities will allow the institution to borrow and display a range of works from other international institutions.  The building design consists of two floors of gallery and other programmed spaces for a total of 140,000 SF.  The project also includes outdoor sculpture gardens, a water feature promenade and an event lawn space that serves the outdoor functions of the museum.  Additionally, the museum shares a planned 150 space parking lot that also serves the adjoining Farmers Market.  The new museum is anticipated to open in late summer of 2018.

PPE Required! – MUST have closed toe shoes (boots preferred), hard hat, vest and goggles (some vests and goggles will be provided at the site if needed).
