Muse Knoxville is a children’s Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) museum conveniently located in Chilhowee Park. 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, outdoor learning spaces and a playground!
  • Field Trips - Bring your class, homeschool, daycare or youth group for a day of fun!
  • Parties and Events - We’ve got parties down to a science! Choose from a variety of packages to celebrate your special day with us.
  • Planetarium - Knoxville’s only public-access planetarium with shows that rotate every hour!

We value inclusivity and passionately advocate for every child to have an opportunity to play, learn, and discover, regardless of social, economic, and physical barriers.
