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!


We are so excited to present our new Cookeville History Museum t-shirts!!! Come by the museum to check-out all four colors! Sizes S/M/L/XL are $15 and size 2XL is $18. It is a great way to support your local museum!
