Mabry-Hazen House is hosting its quarterly Night at the Museum on Wednesday, August 22, 2018 from 6pm-9pm. With school back in session and autumn approaching, join Mabry-Hazen House for their final event of the summer. During the work week, museums (including Mabry-Hazen House) mostly keep bankers' hours and weekends are often packed with other activities, making it difficult for people who hold day jobs but would like to visit more often. 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 Balter Beerworks. 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.
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 historic walkout basement. We’ll have bocce, croquet, and corn hole available to play and guests are encouraged to bring their own games. Food will be available for purchase. All proceeds benefit Mabry-Hazen House.
Event will occur rain or shine.
