Student Group Tours

The Customs House Museum & Cultural Center is one of the largest general interest museums in Tennessee, and we want to share our offerings with you. Student groups can tour the Museum’s permanent exhibits – from an original 1840s log house to displays on local sports history – while also enjoying works from world-renowned artists. Guided tours include an open dialog with students that challenges their thinking and provides an opportunity for creative problem-solving.

Student group tours are available throughout the academic year, along with self-guided scavenger hunts. Contact Sue Lewis, Curator of Education, at 931-648-5780 ext. 2028 for information.

I am always eager to ‘connect the dots’ that help fulfill many of your curriculum objectives. Let me know what you are studying, and I’ll work to create a tour to meet your needs.

-Sue Lewis, Curator of Education
