The Muse Knoxville
As a non-profit institution, The Muse relies on the support and generosity of people like you.
You are our best partner in supporting learning opportunities for families in East Tennessee.

Your support is extremely important because it provides resources that make an immediate impact.

Admission and membership fees cover only 60% of the museum's annual expenses. Your gift helps to cover essential operating expenses like art and technology supplies, exhibits and public programs, free or reduced admission through the MUSE FOR ALL program, outreach to schools, maintenance of our exhibits and facilities, and much more.

There are many ways to give–through gifts to our ANNUAL FUNDCORPORATE PARTNERSHIP, VOLUNTEERING, CAPITAL CAMPAIGNS, matching gifts, planned gifts, or through donations made in tribute to a friend or family member.
We accept gifts of cash, stock and securities, and also IN-KIND gifts and services.
