Temporary Exhibits

We are fortunate to have played host to many different exhibits over the past 10 years and look forward to many more as we continue to grow and extend our reach into the region. From wartime cannons and the Titanic, to one of kind pieces of art and artifacts that reflect our homes and family; you’re sure to experience a ‘new’ museum each time you visit.

Great partnerships with organizations such as the National Park Service, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Tennessee Arts Commission and countless others who have graciously and generously donated items of significance, is what allows the Heritage Center to continue it’s mission of preserving and protecting the rich traditions of East Tennessee.
