Traveling Classrooms

Are you unable to leave the classroom for a tour? We can bring an engaging history program to you! We currently offer one traveling classroom program, but are able to tailor a program for your educational needs.

History Investigators

What is it that a historian actual does? Your students will find out during this interactive program which will teach them how historians play detective. Using primary sources and inquiry-based learning, students will compare historic and modern photographs of the same space looking for evidence of the past. Students will also handle and examine historic artifacts to figure out what they were used for and what they can tell us about society in the 19th century.

Meets Tennessee education standards in Social Studies for Second and Fourth Grade. Also meets Writing, English Language Arts standards for Fourth Grade.

The architecture of Belmont Mansion makes it one of the most significant homes of 19th century Tennessee.

Sold by the Acklen family in 1887, the house went to a developer who began one of Nashville’s early suburbs.

It was then purchased by two women who in 1890 started a college which evolved into Belmont University. Today the Belmont Mansion Association, which was formed in 1972, owns the collection, runs the museum, and shares this unique story of 19th century Nashville with visitors from far and near.
