Mabry-Hazen House: Night at the Museum

Category: Festivals & special events and History & heritage

Mabry-Hazen House will host its quarterly after-hours social—Night at the Museum—on Wednesday, May 15, 2019 from 6pm-9pm. During the work week, museums (including Mabry-Hazen House) mostly keep bankers' hours and weekends are often packed with other activities, making it difficult for people who hold day jobs but would like to visit more often. Night at the Museum is a chance to visit Mabry-Hazen House after-hours on a weekday and drink up a little history. Explore the 1858 historic house in an entirely different light as twilight falls upon Mabry’s Hill, watch the sun set behind Sharp’s Ridge and North Knoxville flicker alight, all while enjoying drinks provided by Pretentious Beer Company.

This "historical happy hour" is not just about the festivity either; it’s about connecting with history and gathering at the museum to meet staff, volunteers, and local community members while talking about the past in a casual atmosphere. Mabry-Hazen House also will continue its new collaborative history series called “Weird History of Knoxville.” This time Mabry-Hazen House will share its collection of “frogs"!

Tickets are $10 per adult and visitors under 18 are free. Each purchased ticket includes two adult beverages and additional drinks are $5. The historic home will be open for self-guided tours and there will be behind-the-scenes access to the family artifacts not typically on display. We’ll have a firepit available outside and guests are encouraged to bring their games, stories, and camp chairs.

Food will be available for purchase. All proceeds benefit Mabry-Hazen House.

Event will occur rain or shine. Tickets will be available at the door or at www.mabryhazen.com/natm.
