Tennessee Judiciary Museum has New Website, Exhibits


NASHVILLE (AP) – The Tennessee Judiciary Museum is kicking off its first anniversary celebration with a dedicated website and several new exhibits.

The museum is located inside the Supreme Court building in Nashville. It was opened last year as the building celebrated its 75th year.

The current exhibit called "Tales of the Tennessee Judiciary" features eight historic Tennessee cases ranging from an 1846 decision on the rights of slaves to the reapportionment of voting districts in 1955.

The museum is a project of the Tennessee Supreme Court Historical Society. It is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to noon. Admission is free.
