The Tennessee State Museum was huge, covering everything from prehistoric times, through the founding of the state, the civil war, and into the present day. We spent all morning and early afternoon exploring its treasures, but we could have spent much more time.

After the museum, we drove around downtown Nashville and then visited the State Capitol, which was smaller than the one in Arkansas and many of the other ones we have visited.

We spent the rest of the day visiting a replica of The Parthenon, which is kinda a weird thing to build in Tennessee. I was disappointed to discover it was made of concrete instead of marble.

Vanderbilt University was practically across the street, so we drove around it some. Gavin wanted to see their baseball stadium, which he managed to do right before a massive thunderstorm started dumping buckets of rain on us.
