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.

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.

My family enjoy visiting the museum a few times a year. The exhibits usually change every few months and its just overall a refreshing experience. This is no charge but they really appreciate any donations.
