Museum Studies Update: On the Road Again

The ten students in the “Introduction to Museum Studies” course have visited 11 historic sites and museums in the region including: City Car Garage Museum, Greeneville – Greene County Museum, The Dickson-Williams Mansion, Andrew Johnson National Historic Site, Jonesborough Heritage Alliance, Bays Mountain, Birthplace of Country Music Museum, William King Museum of Art, Muse Knoxville, East Tennessee Historical Museum, and the American Museum of Science and Energy. At each visit, students were graciously welcomed by museum staff and received a behind-the-scenes look at museum operations. The visits have provided a fun and enlightening introduction for these students to the museum field. A big thank you to the staff of the institutions listed above for welcoming our students so warmly!
