One of the great things about Nashville is that it boasts so many cheap and free historical attractions. From its fantastic parks to its fascinating museums, there's something to be found for everybody in Nashville – even for the most frugal of visitor!
Tennessee State Museum
Not only is it the largest museum in the city, it's also one of the largest in the country. Known as TSM by the locals, the Tennessee's state Museum can be found on the corner of fifth and Deaderick Street in downtown Nashville. Some of the most fascinating exhibits at the museum includes the Civil War exhibit, the Egyptian mummies, and the Frontier display. Best of all, admission is completely free.
Tennessee State Capitol
The Tennessee State Capitol was designed by the architect William Strickland, and today is one of the most prominent landmarks in the city, overlooking the Bicentennial mall. Construction on the Capitol building began back in 1844, and it was finished by 1859. Strickland actually died before the structure was complete, and he was buried inside the buildings walls. Sitting atop the biggest elevation in downtown Nashville, the State Capitol offers a breathtaking view of the rest of the city.
War Memorial Building
Built in 1925 as a memorial to American soldiers who died during the first world war, the wall Memorial building is one of the most poignant attractions in Nashville. The Memorial actually belongs to the military branch exhibit of the Tennessee State Museum. The centerpiece of the more Memorial is a large statue called victory, which can be found in the atrium. The War Memorial is located just across the street from Tennessee State Capitol.
Nashville Arcade Mall
Having been built back in 1903, the Arcade Mall is one of the oldest shopping centers of its kind in the country. Its architecture is very distinctive, with an awe-inspiring glass roof that stretches from one end of the building to the other. Over the last 10 years or so, the Arcade has undergone extensive renovation and revitalization, and is now home to dozens of great little art galleries, as well as a few specialty stores like the Old Peanut Shop.
