This place has a little bit of everything! My eight year old daughter enjoyed it and so did I! We learned, explored and enjoyed the interactive exhibits, which included an archeological dig. There was also enough to do that was physical and helped get burn up some energy out of my little girl. The staff was super friendly and fun,... More

My 6 year old had fun with the water activities, but was kind of bored with the rest of it. He really enjoyed the great balls of fire show too. It was really busy the day we were there, so he couldn't enjoy some of the activities. Perhaps on a less busy day, he would have enjoyed it more. But... More

What a great value for your money. Nonstop activities for the kids and it was clean. Parking lot is a little small but we lucked out.

Our family really had a great time! The exhibits are designed to entertain as well as educate. There is a rotating exhibit; it was Thomas the Train during our visit. There was so much to do we could not see it all. We had a hard time convincing our children to leave.

This is the best children's museum we have enjoyed!! Art, crafts, dinosaur dig, musical instruments, science, water fun, it's all here and more! If you don't have children, borrow your friends kids to take here because you will enjoy it as much as the kids. My granddaughter (age4) painted with all sorts of tools, dug for for Dino bones, made... More

My children have enjoyed this wonderful museum so much over the years. It is always changing, with rotating exhibits and learning opportunities, so if you've been, don't think it won't be worth it to visit again. I have a hard time pulling my children away when it is time to leave! Totally kid friendly, hands-on and really cool for adults... More

This place is amazing. We drove over from Murfreesboro with 4 kids to spend a few hours then go climbing. 5hrs later we never made it to the climbing wall. This place has entertainment for days. Big kids, little kids, etc there is truly something for everyone. Don't miss this place if you are in downtown Chattanooga, it is truly... More

Kids favorite experience of the trip. So many varied experiences for a wide range of ages. I would say they may be less entertained by the time they reach 8 or 9.

We arrived early and left late! This place is a great indoor playground for children. I think under 10 years of age is ideal for the children's discovery museum. My granddaughter loved playing on the climbing/sliding area for several hours. We ate lunch in the museum's cafe and it was delicious and reasonable. Lots of food choices for everyone's taste....
