Night At The Museum



The Cradle of the Tennessee Walking Horse invites you to a “Night at the Museum” on Thursday, November 17, 2011, from 5:00p.m. – 8:00p.m. at the new home of the Tennessee Walking Horse National Museum in downtown Wartrace.

The museum is scheduled to officially open in the spring of 2012. There is much work to do and your ideas, input and support are needed. We would like to include you in the first steps of the set-up, selection of artifacts for display and the organization of research materials. The building has been rented and interior painting will begin prior to moving the display cases or setting up the library and artifacts.

Come join us for an informal night of Walking Horse history and sharing of ideas. We hope you’ll be a part of the history.

Mission Statement
It shall be the mission of the Tennessee Walking Horse National Museum to establish a permanent home for the museum in Wartrace Tennessee which is known as the “Cradle of the Tennessee Walking Horse” by collecting, preserving and providing public access to artifacts, documents, and photographs which document the rich history of the Tennessee Walking Horse.
