Knoxville and its history. If you are passionate about history, visit the city’s seven historical homes, which will tell you the secrets of the past and the stories of the American Civil War. Guided tours of the battlefields and walking tours through the city are also worthwhile. Several museums adorn the urban panorama. Those in the city center present rotating exhibitions celebrating artists and the history of the region. The Knoxville Museum of Art presents the work of artist Richard Jolley, offering the largest permanent exhibition of glass works in the world. Knoxville hosted the 1982 World Expo.
