This modern museum does a nice job of presenting different spheres - the modern selection was very interesting as was the local/Eastern Tennessee artists.

A very pleasant museum experience. Free admission, interesting exhibits and a well- stocked gift shop. Many pieces promote thoughtfulness and consideration of a different perspective from your own.

We stopped at Knoxville only for a rest between cities, and since the museum was near the hotel we stopped in on the way out of town. Wow! what great exhibits! We wound up spending a couple of hours. And it's free. Congrats, Knoxville.

This isn't a large museum, but the contents were extremely well curated and well worth seeing. We were particularly struck by the collection of contemporary prints.

This place amazed me. The architecture was really interesting but the inside blew me away. Wonderful rooms filled with art representing this local area and beyond. I really enjoyed the Portrait of Mrs. Lazar Raditz, among others. I loved the children's area located off the...More
