John Early Museum Tour (offered Friday morning): In 2015, Scarritt moved the majority of its collection to the John Early Museum. This is a chance to see parts of the collection on display.

REAL Nashville Tour (offered Friday afternoon): Take a look behind the curtain of the polished Nashville seen on TV to see the reality beyond the glitz and glam. We will be sharing about the many nonprofits created by students, faculty, and staff of Scarritt to help those in need. This is a tour you won’t want to miss.
