Night at the Museum
May 15 @ 6:00 am - 9:00 pm$10.00
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 libations provided by a local brewery.
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, all while talking about the past in a casual atmosphere. Mabry-Hazen House also will introduce a new collaborative history series called “Weird History of Knoxville,” where a local speaker recounts a strange story in Knoxville’s past and then guests are invited to share their own weird historical Knoxville anecdotes.
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 normally displayed. Food is available for purchase as well.
