Our first visit to this museum but not our last. It is smallish but a good hour esp if the temp section is good. Parking is good and free as is the entrance. Staff is helpful and friendly.

It worked wonders for our budget on an otherwise expensive trip to pigeon forge/ Sevierville/Gatlinburg. Loved the glass exhibit downstairs! Loved the thread spool Mona Lisa! They were showing Tennessee school children’s art when we were there and it was awesome! Very enjoyable for sure....More

Located at The World's Fair Park, this museum hosts a nice display for artists that have ties to this region. While the upper level showcases the permanent works, the middle floor often features temporary current projects.

You can easily cover this museum in 1-2 hours. It is a small museum with worthwhile exhibits. I particularly liked the open space on the first floor where glass pieces hang from the ceiling--plenty of outdoor light to highlight these pieces. Parking is free and...More

The collections - traveling and permanent - are unique and tasteful. I am not a connoisseur, but even I found it worth the visit. Thank you, Amica Insurance for sponsoring free admission.
