It was ok. Good place to go if you have a few kids & don't have anything to do for the day. My kid enjoyed the legod.

Was not very impressed. Seemed very scattered/messy, which I understand that is what kids do, but it was not very inviting. Fortunately inexpensive enough, so it wasn't a PAINFUL disappointment. My kids were ready to go within 10 minutes of getting there.

My kids beg to go to the muse. There are so many things for each my 2 yo and 7 yo to do. They both love the space ship. My 7 yo builds legos and races them. My 2 yo builds tracks with the huge blocks. They both love it all..... Bubble area, sewing/clothes making, music, goofy golf, circus mirrors,... More

My grandsons 6 & 7 always enjoy their trip to The Muse especially on nice days when they can enjoy the playground. Inexpensive and fun place for imaginations to run wild!

We took our grandchildren here again this year during their holiday visit to TN. They thoroughly enjoyed the many interactive exhibits. Lots of fun and we will return in August during their next visit.

We visited The Muse of Knoxville- Discovery Center because we were looking for something to do on a rainy day. While the building is relatively small there’s certainly a nice variety of things for kids to play with and explore. We visited on a weekday and it was relatively early so there were not a lot of visitors at the... More

Was looking for something fun and engaging with 10 year old. She had a great time needing more time than I planned!

This fascinating science center is small but promises an exciting time for kids of all ages. It has interactive exhibits involving technology, geology and aerospace designs to name a few. We took two of our grandchildren this summer and they had a great time. The price is really reasonable.

We bought tickets for here through Half Off Depot (or Groupon? I can't remember).. Anyways, we decided to go one day because we had nothing else to do. The kids were very excited to go but once we got there they were not impressed. They got bored very easily and kept asking if that was all they had. I was... More

We took our 1 year old and this was our first time visiting. Our daughter (and us) had a great time. So many different fun learning activities for kids of all ages. They had live experiments (shooting watermelon, diet coke and mentos, foam). Definitely will be going back.
