The Grover Center changes exhibits several times per year, but also has a several permanent displays, including “The Streets of Old Shelby” and “The Railroad in Shelby County” exhibits.

In addition to the permanent exhibits, the museum also has three rotating galleries, including the Jack and Martha Warble Gallery and the Charlotte Jones Gallery. The three galleries’ exhibits are changed several times a year, and the museum is always looking for new, interesting historical collections.
