The Old Oak Festival provides unique opportunities for the public to visit the two museums on campus at times when they are not typically open. Both the President Andrew Johnson Museum and Library and the Doak House Museum are open to visitors during the festival and feature special activities.
Special exhibits have been featured at the President Andrew Johnson Museum and Library during the festival as well as its President Andrew Johnson and Tusculum College historical exhibits.
The Doak House Museum provides interpretive tours of the 18th century home of one of Tusculum College’s founder. Special musical performances have been presented at the museum during the festival and it has also hosted children’s activities. Last year, the museum hosted a Lego historical building competition, which received a number of entries of Lego representations of local historic homes and buildings.
