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.

Check this place out, it's free! There were some great exhibits while we were there. Free parking, three floors, outdoor balcony and great view. Staff was courteous, however, one gentleman who was there to protect the collection was very intrusive. He made us feel like...More

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.

Attended a charity event there a couple of weeks back and was not as impressed as I would've liked to been. The table layout for the event was obstructed by the stairs and need for affective traffic flow. Great location but the parking is a...More
