Some of the artifacts that are of interest and significance include Eisenhower's Ike jacket, a builder's model of the U.S.S. Tennessee, and two of the six Medals of Honor that were received by Tennesseeans. The museum also displays many artifacts from World War I and II including machinery, weapons, and wartime posters. A full-scale replica of the nuclear bomb that was dropped on Hiroshima can also be found here. Each exhibit gives full detail about what is being displayed and provides examples of how they were used.
