KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- A fundraiser to support The Muse Knoxville is being held at Sequoyah Hills Presbyterian Church, April 12 from 7-8 p.m.
Muse Knoxville is bringing its STEAM-based transformative learning experiences to more Knoxville families with a new concept in West Town Mall called Muse at the Mall. Muse at the Mall will open to the public on Saturday, April 13 at 10 a.m. for a free grand opening.
"Our vision is to make our community the best place for all to learn through the power of play, and Muse at the Mall allows us to extend transformative learning experiences to more children in East Tennessee," said Ellie Kittrell, Executive Director of Muse Knoxville.
The West Town Mall concept will include programs similar to Muse Knoxville. Favorite programs such as Story Time, MakeSpace, and Science Connections will be incorporated in Muse at the Mall, but unique programming such as Kids Stage and STEAM Alley will be new.
Muse Knoxville members will be able to experience Muse at the Mall with their existing membership at no additional cost. Parents and children between the ages of 2-64 can play at Muse at the Mall for $7 per person. Just like at Muse Knoxville, seniors, kids younger than the age of two and teachers and military service members with ID are free. Families and businesses will also be able to host birthday parties or other special events at Muse at the Mall.
"Our goal is to inspire and empower more children throughout East Tennessee with STEAM education, and Muse at the Mall allows us to do just that. Muse 'playologists' will ensure an exciting and secure learning environment that incorporates STEAM education and collaborative play. Just like Muse Knoxville, everyone is welcome at Muse at the Mall," added Kittrell.
