Night at the Museum
August 21 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm$10.00
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 locals 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 a Fanatic Brewing 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 history series where we share an artifact or objects that are not normally on display. We will also have special tour of the walkout basement–an area normally closed to visitors.
Tickets are $10 per adult and visitors under 16 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 fire pit 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.
