Muse Knoxville Reopens to Public
Knoxville’s children's museum opens doors to visitors for weekend and fall break hours

After being closed for seven months, Knoxville’s children’s museum has reopened for visitors, with exciting new exhibits and ways to play. The museum has taken precautions to ensure the health and safety of their guests. Visitors reserve their playtime in two hour time slots using the online platform, Bookeo. All guests ages 5 and up are required to wear masks and are encouraged to follow safe distancing practices. Muse Knoxville has placed Ionopure air sanitizers throughout the museum, and will also conduct temperature screenings and shoe sanitizing for all guests and employees.

“Our team has worked very hard to reopen safely for children and the adults that love them,” said Ellie Kittrell, executive director of Muse Knoxville. “Play is critical to early childhood development and we can’t wait to share all our new ways to play!.” During their closure, the museum has added two new exhibit areas, and reimagined old favorites for an enhanced play experience.

Muse Knoxville will expand their hours of operation during Oct. 12-16, in accordance with Knox County Schools’ fall break schedule. To view the most updated list of hours, visitors can visit www.themuseknoxville.org.
