Great Place to go & see some Cool Stuff & IT'S FREE! We will go back because some of the ART changes while other parts stay. It's not just boring paintings. They have some really COOL stuff but they also have some of the boring paintings if you are in to it. Over all the place is kid friendly but... More

The museum is small but has a wide variety of art on display. The miniature rooms were delightful and we enjoyed the art glass display.

I always enjoy the Thorne Room. Have taken my nieces there and they always enjoy the exhibits and find the miniatures very exciting. They want to make miniatures too. This museum is the perfect size to enjoy with all ages and not wear yourself out trying to see everything. Closed on Mondays.

Lovely and varied art. My favorite thing were the dollhouse miniatures on the first floor, the Thorne Collection. Lots of space for kids!

This was a wonderful museum to visit. I would recommend it for all ages. There are a total of three floors but the lower level appears to be mainly used for classes, etc. There is a good variety of items and some very unique pieces. The staff was helpful. There is no admission fee.

Very interesting. My daughter loved the miniature room exhibit. There was so much to look at. It was a good place to spend an hour or two while visiting Knoxville.

It proved a delightful find at a delightful price. Free admission and free parking. Galleries are uncrowded and viewing is not overbearing. Walls are uncrowded and works feel open and free. The exhibition of works in glass is surreal. I had a grand time with my cameras on those glass works. Be sure to see permanent exhibition of East Tennessee... More

I really enjoyed this art museum. They had some of the most unique forms of art I've seen in an art museum. I spent about 2 hours and really enjoyed the traveling show section with the glass. The museum is bright, airy, and easy to walk around. Another surprise it didn't cost anything unless you chose to leave a donation.... More

We enjoyed the Knoxville Museum of Art a lot. My daughter is an art student at Mass College of Art and was pleasantly surprised with the the layout and art in the museum. She took many photos and notes. It was free which was even more of a bonus. The back of the museum has a patio that looks out... More
