Reviewed 14 April 2018

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 was the first thing we did on our trip to Knoxville. It was very enjoyable, there is free admission and lots to see.

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 was a great way to spend part of the day. We were welcomed right as we came in the door and were given a quick rundown of how the museum is laid out. Some of the pieces were "interesting". There is a room dedicated to local schools in the area, which is a nice touch. Parking was extremely easy and free. I would suggest getting there when it opens (10:00 a.m.). We were the first ones there and some other groups came in behind us.
The only thing I would say is that some of the employees in the galleries could have been a bit more friendly. They were a bit "stand-offish"; however, one of the employees did answer a question.After that, she was a bit snooty when my husband talked to her. Maybe they aren't allowed to engage in conversation with the people who come in?
I will definitely be going back.

The kids love going here to walk around and learn new things. The children’s area here is fun and very educational. Love going every chance we get.
