Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum

The Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum is a non-profit organization that came into being with the goal of bringing back the steam engines and locomotives which have become a thing of the past. Today everyone can actually experience the nostalgic feeling by walking past the working repair shops. Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum is a great venue for holding a birthday party or picnics for your kid. It offers great variety like the Christmas Special, the Autumn Leaf Special, the Valentine Dinner Train and the Halloween Eerie Express. Also, it has been one of the prime locations for shooting movies, including October Sky, Heaven's Sky and Fool's Parade.

The Houston Museum of Decorative Arts

A lovely jewel tastefully displayed in the heart of the Bluff View Arts District, this destination is well worth discovering. Considered to be quite a significant collection of antique collectible glass works, furniture, music boxes, coverlets, china and other items of the 1700s and 1800s, this beautiful collection has been hailed by national authorities as one of the greatest in the world. Featuring such universally known names as Steuben and Tiffany, the collection is amazing. Yet only so amazing when compared to the collector who amassed the artwork throughout her colorful life, Anna Safley Houston (a.k.a. "Antique Annie").

International Towing and Recovery Museum

This rather unusual museum celebrates the history and evolution of the humble tow truck. In 1916, Chattanoogan Ernest Holmes sold the first tow truck for commercial use, and the entire towing industry began right here in this city. The museum commemorates this important invention by featuring an array of antique and 20th-century tow trucks, alongside other vintage memorabilia.
