This is hands down the best children's museum we have been to. We spent the afternoon there but could have easily spend the entire day. The kids loved the indoor play structure, the art center and especially the wood working/craft center. The young man in the woodworking center was so helpful to all of the children(and parents). I think his... More

If you have kids under 12- just go and plan to spend the day. There are all kinds of hands on activities. Including a really cool water play area- so maybe bring a change of clothes!

Man we missed out all those years! It was so much fun!!! It was crowded, but as someone that hates crowds I still found it manageable since there... More

Lots to do different from other's I have visited. More educationally oriented than most with a very pleasant staff. Discount if combined with the aquarium and only a few blocks away.

I think this is a good kids museum. Lots to do to keep them entertained - especially when it's bad weather or extremely humid out.

We visited with 3 boys: 10y, 6y and 1y - they all enjoyed it! We spent several hours there with so many activities - it was fun for all 3, and for the adults too. Highly recommended.

We just spent a couple of days in and around Chattanooga with our 3.5yr old boy and this place was superb. A great variety of things to do. Good value for money. Would highly recommend a visit!
