The McClung Museum of Natural History and Culture has won two Awards of Excellence from the 2013 Tennessee Association of Museums (TAM).

One award recognized Zen Buddhism and the Arts of Japan, an exhibit featured at the museum late last year. The other recognized the film Continents Collide: The Appalachians and the Himalayas, created by producer Steve Dean to accompany a temporary exhibit of the same name.

A committee of museum colleagues and TAM board members evaluated nominees and selected the McClung Museum for these awards to recognize its outstanding accomplishments to the Tennessee museum community.

The McClung Museum, at 1327 Circle Park Drive, is open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Sundays. Admission is free.

The museum’s exhibits include archaeology, ancient Egypt, decorative arts, the Battle of Fort Sanders, geology, and fossils.  For more information about the McClung Museum and its collections and exhibits, visit the website.
