McClung Museum Of Natural History And Culture Reviews & Ratings
This was a wonderful learning opportunity for our kids. Lots of neat artifacts and exhibits. We were looking for something we could do on a budget and this was perfect as it's free to view. They would appreciate donations however. There is a small gift shop as well and they had some really cool little things for sale that related to the countries in their exhibits. Our family really enjoyed our trip here.
I might be biased because my family and I have worked for this place for three generations but Frank H. McClung is a diamond in the rough, if you're in Knoxville and looking for a cultural experience you go to the Knoxville Museum of Art, get tickets for the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra, and you go to the McClung. Their exhibits are well curated and interactive, the layout of the building is a bit dated and hard to work out but to me it just adds to it's charm it's really like exploring history you'll think you've seen everything and then you'll find a nook of Japanese Warring States armor, or an alcove of Native American artefacts. If you live in or near Knox and you haven't been you're doing yourself a disservice and if you're planning on visiting don't leave this out of your itinerary.
A great little museum to learn anew or review East TN history. Natural as well as modern day. Also the exhibits seem to change often enough to keep you coming back. My kids, 5&7 love this museum. A great place for the family on a afternoon.
Very educational. Nice staff, very courteous. I'm handicapped and the guard brought me a wheelchair. Thank you for being thoughtful.
Very informative with several activities for my 6 year old granddaughter.
