The mission of the McClung Museum is to advance understanding and appreciation of the earth and its peoples through the collection, preservation, study, interpretation, and exhibition of objects and data. As a part of the University of Tennessee, the museum works to support academic programs and provide educational programming.
The museum also participates in implementing the university’s central mission: to cultivate and enrich the human mind and spirit through teaching, scholarship, artistic creation, public service, and professional practice.
Since opening in 1963, the museum has fostered education, ideas, creativity, research, and public service in our community and at the University of Tennessee.
