A Day at the Customs House Museum in Clarksville, TN

 

The Customs House Museum is Clarksville's museum full of history about the area around Clarksville and the Cumberland River. It has many exhibits both temporary and permanent that are perfect for the whole family or any history buff.  

Customs House Museum

There is so much for families and children with January 14th as Family Free Day called All Aboard. This day has a special emphasis on the model trains. They model trains will run from 10AM to 12PM and 2-3PM. There are activities of all types and a model train scavenger hunt. This sounds like a lot of fun. There are hands on learning experiences for children and a story time. 

There are other special exhibits throughout the year and here are the ones currently being featured:

Slave and Slaeholders of Wessyngton Plantation

Tennessee Watercolor Society Traveling Exhibition

Her Honeybunch Sweetie Pie is Gone

 

The Customs House Museum is located in one of the most historic buildings in Clarksville. On the corner of Commerce and South Second Street in downtown Clarksville, it has a very unusual architectural facade and has been registered on the National Historic Registry. It is over a hundred years old. The Customs House Museum has a history of being used as a real customs house, a post office and several other uses which includes the Department of Electricity. We are proud that is the second largest general museum in the State of Tennessee. 

The Customs House Museum is open every day of the week except Mondays. Check the website to see museum and gift shop hours.

 

Temporary Exhibits are constantly changing throughout the year with a wide variety of features. Many of them  are of local artists. The permanent displays do focus on locals from the area. Check the website for the admission costs and how to become a member. Remember the second Saturday of each month has free admission.

I could barely get past that photo - such beautiful architecture, Debbie Reynolds! I love that they feature local artists in their temporary exhibits - such a great way to support the community.  This is definitely a place that I will ask you to take me when I visit Clarksville, Debbie!

The Customs House Museum would keep me interested! I love the architectural style too. I often wonder if our generation would be the same, better, or worse if it wasn't for today's technology? Without CAD, how did they do it 100 years ago? Can you imagine being a roofer, painter, or window washer for the roof top?

Think of the cost in today's dollars, Patricia Feager. They would cut corners and leave out so many of the architectural features.
