  • Hollywood Star Cars Museum
    On re-created sets complete with lights and sound, Hollywood Star Cars Museum unveils a collection of iconic autos from movies and television, including many built and modified by famed four-wheeled star-maker George Barris. Law-flaunting jaywalkers freeze at the sight of the 1966 Batmobile, a $250,000 1955 Ford Lincoln Futura concept car reimagined into a crime-fighting super machine complete with a foreboding front modified to look like the black winged animal. Famous 1969 heartthrob Herbie the Love Bug also makes the scene with sidekick Little Herbie, while the famed DeLorean from Back to the Future hangs out with a futuristic motorcycle from the far-off year 2015. Meanwhile, a Corvette Grand Sport driven by Vin Diesel in the 2011 film Fast Five inspires mouth-simulated explosions and improvised catchphrases.

  • Titanic, The Legend Continues
    In 1987?75 years after the RMS Titanic sank?John Joslyn helped lead an expedition to the bottom of the sea to photograph the wreck and bring up artifacts. Today, the gigantic museum he founded holds authentic items from the Titanic numbering in the thousands and valued at $4.5 million. Accoutrements of Edwardian life that range from cutlery to deck chairs fill meticulously accurate reproductions of the million-dollar grand staircase, the third-class sleeping rooms, and the cozy second-class space between the floorboards. Families make their way through interactive attractions at their own pace as they sit in a full-size lifeboat, walk up the grand staircase, feel exactly how cold 28-degree water is, touch an iceberg, steer the ship, and learn to send an SOS signal. The walk-through experience lasts approximately two hours.

  • Elvis Hollywood Legends Museum
    It's no wonder Elvis Presley is a legend. Not only did he sing "Heartbreak Hotel" and "All Shook Up"?he's still marrying people in Vegas more than three decades after his death. (Or at least, his droves of impersonators are.) At the Elvis Hollywoods Legends Museum, visitors meet the man behind that legend, through his movie props, tour costumes, and other items. Size: hundreds of artifacts, from his shimmering tunics to one of his shiny red convertibles. Eye Catcher: a can of Jif peanut butter. It's a memento of the time Elvis had his private plane stop over in Denver, so he could order a 1.5-foot peanut butter sandwich. They delivered it right to his plane! Permanent Exhibit: the TCB ring, which Elvis designed himself and gave to J.D. Sumner onstage during a concert. It features a 7.58-karat diamond, lightning bolts, and Elvis's motto, TCB. (It stands for "taking care of business," which Elvis did by depositing a teddy bear at every bank he saw.) Hidden gem: the quirky anecdotes tucked away in the audio commentary. They're from Ed Hill and Donnie Sumner, two guys who jammed with Elvis, spent extended stays at Graceland, and were two of his closest friends. Don't Miss: the gift shop on your way out. It's stocked with an eclectic mix of Elvis Presley collectibles, perfect for the fan with an empty mantle.

  • Blount Mansion
    The Blount Mansion Ghosts and Ghouls tour bridges the gap between past and present by taking visitors on a spine-tingling tour of Knoxville's spookiest historical sites. Leaders donning their most elaborate guises will take visitors through the ectoplasm-soaked streets of downtown Knoxville, regaling them with terrifying anecdotes of bloody and supernatural events in the actual places where they once occurred. Past excursions have included stops at the Gay Street Bridge, where criminals were hanged for horrendous crimes such as murder, robbery, and having shifty eyes. Perhaps the most horrendous intrigue is a recounting of the legend of the Wampus cat ?an ancient folkloric creature that causes insanity and drags victims to its underground cave beneath the city, where they're forced to drink with the decidedly less frightening ghost of Andrew Jackson and declare their undying hatred of the Whig party.

  • Knoxville Museum of Art
    Alive After Five provides music lovers with an opportunity to hear master melodeers in an unconventional venue. Each installment in the popular Friday-evening series presents the musical stylings of stylists who fall outside of the mainstream?s diet of pop-rock, gangster rap, and Mongolian folk song mash-ups. Come out October 8 to digest the Latin-flavored ear food of Matias-Rocha y Nueva Trova?accompanied by the fancy footwork of Latin dance school Salsa Knox?or swing by November 12 for the jazz, blues, and soul of Bluesette. Many performances also strike a comestible chord with fare from local eateries such as Cocoa Moon and Regas Restaurant, plus two cash bars to keep throats clear in case of a mid-song audience scat wave.
