Welcome to the Cookeville History Museum
The Cookeville History Museum provides exhibits, programs and activities that promote the history of Cookeville and Putnam County. The museum houses a self-paced, permanent exhibit on the history of this community, including a timeline around the building that begins with the first people to the area and ends with what is happening today. The front gallery is dedicated to local history exhibits, traveling exhibits and collection displays. Visit the Cookeville History Museum and let us share our story with you!
Cookeville Museums' History Hikes
2nd Saturday of each month; 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
The theme for October 10 is the TTU Centennial! We'll have Tech-themed photos in 8 different windows along Broad St. and you will have to figure out where they are based on the clue on your entry form for a chance at a fabulous prize from WestSide Deli. Bring your family friends out for a fun fall Saturday and more free family fun from your friends at the Cookeville Museums/City of Cookeville, Dept. of Leisure Services! GOOD LUCK!!!
The second Saturday of each month from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm, come HISTORY HIKE between the Cookeville Depot Museum and the Cookeville History Museum! Pick up your entry (and enjoy some cookies) at either museum, find the answers to the trivia questions along Broad Street between the two museums and have the form back by 3:30 pm to be included in the prize drawing! If you like, you can do both hikes (Depot -> History Museum and/or History Museum -> Depot) each day. FREE, family fun from YOUR City of Cookeville, Historical Arts Div. of the Dept. of Leisure Services.
***EVERY child will receive a free kids' meal from our GREAT friends at Cookeville Chili's Bar & Grill!!!**
