Free Admission for Local Families

Specialty ARTS license plates are an easy way to contribute to spreading art and artistry in Tennessee. Every plate supports the Tennessee Arts Commission, which directly supports our creative community.

Community Partners

Visiting the Museum as part of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee?

As part of our Community Counts initiative, all school-age children residing in Davidson, Cheatham, Robertson, Rutherford, Sumner, Wilson, and Williamson counties enter the Museum for free during off school hours. When visiting the Museum with their Littles, Big Brothers and Big Sisters from Middle Tennessee need only present their BBBS of Middle Tennessee identification cards at the Information Desk (located just inside the Museum’s main entrance) to receive free admission. When visiting as a Couples Match, the second Big will receive 25% off adult admission.
