Dragon Dreams Museum is not a natural history museum. It is an artistically inspired collection from the realms of imagination and mythology. It is believed tis is the only museum and gift shop of its type in the United States and the world. Please visit us in our new location in Coolidge Park across from the carousel in the Northshore area of Chattanooga, Tn.

The museum has been sold is temporarilly closed, while it is being relocated to a larger and more suitable location in the downtown Chattanooga area. Please visit Dragon Dreams Museum on FaceBook for further updates (Signal Mountain Rd & Mountain Creek Rd listing) (the Brainerd Rd listing is the old one and is no longer viable).

I do!!!!!! Its stepping into the ultimate dragon collection. Small items from magnets and figurines, to bigger statues, clothes, masks and even furniture. So many dragon items it can make your head spin!

This place is a joke. Its the size of a double wide with dragon and fairy statues everywhere you look. Nothing like a museum. it just looks like somebody collected statues all of their life and then felt like they should set them out on display.

If you were frequently locked in a closet or pooped your pants at school as a youngster, then you will love this place. Cat lady's and band geeks will also appreciate. However, if you are a functioning member of society with a college education and a real job, then stay away!!! Even if you think it will shut-up your weird... More

My family loves this quaint little museum.

There are different rooms so you always get the feeling of "what's next?!". Wonderful little place! The cost... More

The museum was closed and there was no sign indicating when and if it was actually opening again. Luckily it wasn't too far out of our way. If you plan to visit CALL FIRST! If no... More

If you love fantasy you are sure to live this amazing collection! Well worth the trip. The only thing is that it is warm in the exhibit.

We enjoyed the gift shop. It was towards the end our day and my 4 yr old niece had about enough for the day. But still the 2 folks running the store was kind enough to talk to us about the musem and about the products in the store.
