Tennessee Agricultural Museum

Historic Rural Life Festival - Held on Thursday, May 9 and Friday, May 10, this annual event is a great opportunity for children to discover the rural past of Tennessee, enjoy old-time activities, see honey bees in an observation beehive and touch farm animals too!

Your group will see the crafts and chores that were a routine part of farm life before the advent of electricity. Butter churning, spinning, blacksmithing, weaving and pottery making are just a few of the activities. You can stop under shade trees for shingle making and wood-working activities with Tennessee State Foresters!

Admission is $3 per person for ages 2 and older, payable by cash or check. We regret that we are unable to accept credit or debit cards. Please call (615) 837-5197 to make reservations for schools, organizations, or groups over five people. To see our flyer, click here.
