Small But Fun

Took Grandchildren and they enjoyed it. People who worked there are really helpful. Not tons of stuff to do but really hands on. Would go back. Kids had fun.

PROS: member museum of ASTC; varied interactive exhibits for young children. Ample parking. CONS: only younger children will be interested; interest wanes for children older than probably 8 years old.

We took our 4 year old here and he had fun. He especially liked the space ship and the big bubbles. The Planetarium was small and crowded. There are no seats in the Planetarium, everyone just sits in the floor. They had a 3-D printer going making the Sunsphere, and that was interesting to watch. You can also book birthday... More

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!
