Nice visit. Was an little underwhelmed with the options for 5 year old kids but they didn't seem to mind and found enough to do to kill a few hours.

I stopped here to waste some time while Inwas waiting for someone. My daughters ages 8, 8, and 9 loved it. They had fun with all the hands on stuff. Make sure to spend some time on the outside playground as well.

We stopped here on the way from Gatlinburg to Chattanooga. In our party, there was a 3 year old, 6 year old, 7 year old & a 8 year old. All of them had fun. There was a section for each of them to do. The older kids had fun building Lego cars and racing them, while the little one... More

If your little one is crawling, jumping, running, building, acting, painting, flying, or designing; there is something for them to do at The Muse in Knoxville. The staff were around to help, clean up and yet it felt like the place just cleaned itself up. The children were so excited to be there and into their discoveries. It was a... More

We attended during a Saturday Science Connection time with a Biology program from UTK. Mom and kids both enjoyed learning about synthetic biology. The new exhibit updates are great too. Plan to spend 2-3 hours there.

We really enjoyed this place. The kids loved the outdoor playground. Inside were plenty of STEM activities that all kids enjoyed(13, 11, 10 and 2). The toddler area had a play grocery store and playground area. Older boys loved to build with blocks. They had fun outdoor space with bubbles and an edible garden. We had a great time.

More a play place than a museum. Great for keeping kids under 8 busy with some cool play stations. Planetarium was ok, but not a must see. Proximity to Zoo also a plus if the weather turns bad.

We visited the MUSE with our family with members from 2 to 66, all had a great time. Many interactive displays to delight all age groups. Wish it was closer to where I live.

We meet with family in Knoxville as a meeting point that we see once a year. The children we brought to this location ranged in age from 1,3,6,9. They give a very good Military discount! Which if it applies to you we recommend you take advantage of. They offer: Soft Block building area, Craft area, Puppet/Dress Up, Grocery Area, Shadow... More
