There is much more to Knoxville than just the downtown, however.

The Knoxville Museum of Art celebrates the rich cultural visual diversity in East Tennessee and explores its connections with a larger world. There are both permanent and rotating exhibits that include artists outside of the area, as well as UT artists.
Knoxville Zoo
Zoo Knoxville has a strong focus on being an integral part of the largest conservation movement in the world. They strive to maintain a healthy, genetically diverse population in zoos in order to help protect these animals from extinction.
