The Knoxville Museum of Art has achieved accreditation by the American Alliance of Museums, the highest national recognition for a museum. This is the KMA’s third accreditation, a status it first attained in 1995.
AAM accreditation brings national recognition to a museum for its commitment to excellence, accountability, high professional standards, and continued institutional improvement.
Of the nation’s nearly 17,500 museums, only about 1,000 are currently accredited. Locally, the only other AAM-accredited museum is the McClung Museum of Natural History and Culture at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville.
The Knoxville Museum of Art is located in downtown Knoxville at 1050 World’s Fair Park and is open to the public Tuesday through Saturday 10am–5pm, and Sunday 1pm-5pm. Admission and parking are free. Photo by David Massengill.
