Here for my kiddies was the best idea. We did combo tickets w the aquarium only to realize they offered family night and free entry later that day. Oh well. My kids had a blast here. The play area was small enough for them and then big enough for us to follow. There was so many options for just playing... More

My husband and I took our 3 children. Our children range from 7-15 years old. We all had a blast. There was something for everyone. It is definately the best discovery museum we have ever been to!

If you have kids, don't miss this children's museum. I even have fun playing when I visit...and I'm more than 50 years older than most of the kids there. It is only 3 blocks, easy walking distance, from the Tennessee Aquarium, and you can get a combo ticket for both attractions.

This is one of our favorite Children's Museums. There is always enough to keep our kids engaged. Our 9 year old daughter was thrilled with an art lesson, son & daughter enjoyed a cooking class while husband played with our toddler in area geared for her. Perfect!

Oh my goodness your children will love this place if they like to tinker or be hands on with learning. My kids had a blast and want to go back soon. I'm actually kinds sad I couldn't do everything they were able to do. I want an adult version of this please!!!

My kids had so much fun here!! So much to do. We could have easily spent a whole day here. They have a nice little cafe with decent prices and choices. They also offer crafts and everything is hands on.
