Arts & Museums
The Discovery Center at Murfree Spring is a hands-on interactive museum that engages its visitors in every way possible. The Center began as a Children's Museum in 1986, and has come a long way since its birth. It also operates as a nature center. The exhibits being interactive provide a great scope of learning and acquiring knowledge.
Just outside of Nashville is this small reconstruction of a pioneer settlement. It was from this settlement that the city of Murfreesboro grew. Named after the first Whig governor of Tennessee, Cannonsburgh Village features log homes, a gristmill, schoolhouse, town hall, blacksmith's shop, church and museum. Inside, each building looks as it did in the early 1800s. The camp is open to the public year round, and school groups and tours are welcome. If you come in July, you can enjoy the weekend long festival of music and hand made crafts known as Uncle Dave Macon Days.
Artists from around the country present their work at this visual and performing arts venue, which is located just 30 minutes east of downtown Nashville. The Center for Arts is part of the beautiful Carnegie Library, and consists of a large gallery and auditorium. Regular programs, such as changing art exhibits and musical performances, run throughout the year. A range of theater productions and children's workshops occur from time to time.
