Beautiful place for pictures and the banquet hall was PERFECT. I am SO happy I had my wedding there. It couldn’t have been more perfect! – Carrie


The price of the Museum is what really attracted me to this venue. It is about half the price of any other venue around Knoxville. The venue holds more than 150 people and was great for our wedding.  Everything else was great and everyone had a great time at the venue!

I cannot express how absolutely 100% pleased I was with Museum of Appalachia as my venue for both my wedding ceremony and reception. I loved the rusticness of the venue and it was truly beautiful! Our wedding was on Nov. 3 so the colorful leaves really added to our ceremony in front of the grist mill. The staff was very helpful throughout my planning process. I am still getting compliments about how beautiful my wedding was, and some people are even saying it was the best wedding ever. I would HIGHLY recommend the Museum of Appalachia to anyone!

The Museum is beautiful and they have been prompt with replying. It was absolutely perfect, we were married in front of the Grist Mill and it was so perfect! The reception hall was the best place for our reception. And we had our sparkler exit in front of the house right by the gift shop which made for the best photos! It was all around amazing and Kate was so helpful with all of our questions.

Great venue. Exactly what we were looking for. Couldn’t have ask for a better day.
