Muse Knoxville

Muse Knoxville is a children’s Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) museum conveniently located in Chilhowee Park and West Town Mall. Our programs in the museum, in schools across 24 East Tennessee counties, and throughout Knoxville bring STEM, the arts, health and wellness, and emergent literacy to life in the minds of young children. We inspire and empower ALL children through transformative learning experiences, through a variety of hands-on and inquiry-based, exhibits and Outreach programs for children aged 6 months to 10 years old.

  • Museum Play - You’ll find indoor educational learning and play spaces, a full-dome planetarium at Chilhowee Park, outdoor learning spaces and a playground!
