Night at the Museum
November 11, 2020 @ 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 people who hold day jobs but would like to visit. 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 Albright Grove 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. The historic home will be open for self-guided tours and there will be behind-the-scenes access to the walkout basement at 7:30pm. Mabry-Hazen House also will continue its history series where we share an artifact or objects that normally are not on display. Historic photographs from our collection will be shared.
Tickets are $10 per adult and visitors under 16 are free. Each purchased ticket includes two adult beverages and additional drinks are $5.
We’ll have a fire pit, croquet, and corn hole available outside and guests are encouraged to bring their games, stories, and camp chairs. Light refreshments will be available for purchase. All proceeds benefit Mabry-Hazen House.
Preceding Night at the Museum at 5:30pm, Mabry-Hazen House will hold its annual Meeting of the Membership. During the meeting, we will elect board members and the foundation’s executive officers. Members receive $5 off tickets to Night at the Museum. Not a member?
