One of the first facilities in the country to bring together military history, environmental education, and historical preservation, the Tipton County Museum is truly unique. This million-dollar facility is located in the largest urban park in the county, which includes a 20-acre wildlife sanctuary, a half-mile nature trail, a wetland study area, plus a natural forest.The museum houses changing history exhibits featuring artifacts from Tipton County’s rich heritage and a nature center depicting the unique ecosystem of West Tennessee. Numerous programs for students and adults are available year round.

The conference center is an excellent place to host your reception, corporate meeting, or event.

Educational programs can be given upon request to groups of children in grades K – 12, following our ongoing mission “Enhancing Classroom Education”.  Please call the museum to schedule your program.

You are invited to use the Cobb Parr Park picnic area for lunches and the new playground for fun and games. Pavilion may be reserved for a fee.  Contact Covington Parks and Recreation  at (901) 476-3734 for more information.
