Where are we going today?

We just LOVE to play, so why not visit a place where you can play all day, and learn at the same time!

The Muse Knoxville is a place that hopes to inspire and empower those growing minds and bodies in the sciences and arts - all while giving them an amazing place to just play, discover, and be themselves! 

Kids from 1 year, to 101 years, can enjoy the 4,000 sq ft of exhibit and play space, filled with exhibits that each teach and uncover something new and unique. The exhibit are designed for specific age groups too, so you can be sure that your kids are experiencing the right exhibit for their learning level!

Kids with inquisitive minds can explore the STEM Station, where multi-outcome and multi-user experiences team them all about those important STEM subjects.

Those little ones can develop lifelong healthy habits in the Healthy Kids Clinic, where they can choose foods in the Farmers Market, or tackle the Backyard Challenge!

Those future engineering masterminds can spend the day inventing in BuildSpace, and practice design and construction. There is Lego to build with, or they can create a custom roller coaster on a magnetic wall! 

If kids are feeling creative, The Muse Knoxville has a stage where their imaginations can run wild as they put on a show as they get in costume.

There is physical fun with lasers and mirrors, science in the garden to explore, and the ONLY public access Planetarium in Knoxville - amazing!
