With the Tennessee State Museum badly in need of new space — and with the National Museum of African American Music eyeing the existing Nashville Convention Center as a possible home — we wondered the following: Could the state museum, a new building for which has long been proposed for the North Capitol area, lease space in the convention center?
When asked, Lois Riggins-Ezzell, Tennessee State Museum executive director, provided this response.
“This is the first we've heard of any suggestions regarding the old convention center as a potential home for the new museum," Riggins-Ezzell told the Post in an email message. "The future of the new state museum lies solely with Governor Haslam's administration, the TN General Assembly and the State Museum Commission.”
