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.

Knoxville is not a large city as cities go but it's art scene is one of the most vibrant we've seen. From KMA to the Emporium, if you like art, you'll be right at home in K'ville.

This is a nice museum but it's small. It is free and it is nice but you can do it all in 45 minutes and we love museums. It's worth going to but it won't take long.
