  • 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.  more »
  • Beautiful local art and art from all around the world. I was pleasantly pleased with every part of the museum. Hard to believe its free!! We went as a date day while walking around down town knoxville...  more »
  • 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 Tenness...  more »

  • This is a great place to go on a rainy day, either alone or with others. I could easily spend a few hours in this clean, well organized, interesting museum. It was nice to see they have temporary pieces as will as permanent ones. There really should be more seating available though. It's definitely a place to go again.
  • The student art was amazing, hard to believe the quality of the works by these middle and high school kids. Entrance to the museum is free and everyone was very friendly. The permanent exhibition was ok: it that some good art, but it mostly documents local artists and it's quite small.
  • Everyone working here was very nice and my family had an awesome time looking at all the variations of Art.
  • Great place to take visitors. Felt like a San Francisco art gallery but was free! Loved it.
  • Man, I love art and Knoxville has a,sweet little museum. When we visited it was late in the day so I didn't get to see everything, but ivwill go back. They have super nice people working there. There are a few interactive exhibits that our daughter enjoyed and I saw that they have learning ops for kids but we didn't experience that so I don't have any observations to share about that but they are probably great!
