McClung Museum to Host Free Stroller Tour March 9

Families and community members are invited to join UT’s McClung Museum of Natural History and Culture for a free stroller tour on Monday, March 9.

The 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. event will be a tour of the museum’s current special exhibit, Drawn from the McClung Museum, and will focus on art. Parents and caregivers with toddlers or babies are invited to meet in the museum’s lobby before taking the tour. The event is part of a monthly series of free stroller tours that allow parents and caregivers to interact with one another and museum staff without the worry of disrupting other visitors.

The program is free and open to the public, but reservations are necessary and are first-come, first-served. Online registration is preferred. Participants also may call the museum at 865-974-2144 to make a reservation.

The McClung Museum is located at 1327 Circle Park Drive. Museum admission is free, and the museum’s hours are 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday to Saturday and 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. on Sundays. Free two-hour museum parking passes are available from the parking information building at the entrance to Circle Park Drive on the weekdays. Free parking is available on the weekends.
