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!
Visit the History Museum from December 13 through January 10 to enjoy the current exhibit, Childhood Treasures: A Vintage Toy Collection!
Cookeville Museums' History Hikes
Cookeville Museums History Hikes are ongoing--2nd Saturday of each month; 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
On hiatus until March!
The second Saturday of each month from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm will be a 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. Just a bit more FREE, family fun from YOUR City of Cookeville, Historical Arts Div. of the Dept. of Leisure Services.
