Mabry-Hazen House is hosting its quarterly "historical happy hour"--Night at the Museum--on Wednesday, August 19, 2020 from 6pm-9pm!
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 Elkmont Exchange. And with over 7 acres near downtown, there is plenty of room for you to safely social distance and relax outdoors.
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. The museum will limit capacity to ensure the safety of visitors.
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 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.
Tickets are capped to ensure the safety and health of visitors. Visitors are requested to follow Knox County Health Department guidelines and physically distant from other families/groups. We ask visitors please follow the Five Core Actions recommended by KCHD and the CDC. Face masks and coverings are required within the historic house.
