Know Before You Go: Marbles is transforming the central courtyard into the Marbles Playway! This construction phase (expected to last from June-Oct. 2024) will result in the closure of some entrances and walkways around the Marbles campus. The temporary museum entrance is located at the corner of Blount and Hargett Sts. All museum visitors are required to enter through the Marbles PlayStore.
