We loved this museum. A wide variety of displays. Train collections was cool, the art was awesome and the history of Clarksville was very informative. The kid section with the bubble zone and other things they had to do was really fun for both adults and children. A must do when in Clarksville!!!!

The museum is more like a daycare with a gift shop than a museum. If you must go, I believe the first Sunday of the month is free.

This very unique building has architecture and a unique atmosphere that makes it worth a visit on its own right, but since it is a museum, it is a great staple in the middle of downtown! It features rotating exhibits by local artists, a kids' zone (which several babysitters were using while we were there, good idea!) and sports/historical exhibits... More

The Customs House Museum and Cultural Center is a neat place to learn about the city of Clarksville and its many interesting citizens, both past and present. I took my church youth group here for a Saturday visit and they had a great time. We know it's sometimes hard to entertain a group of teenagers, so I was very impressed... More

Very ugly on the outside, or is it artistic? This museum is a very good little field trip for a class or family. You can learn interesting things about the city. It's very clean and comfortable & the staff is very friendly. It's a small town attraction with a great feel!

The old Customs House Museum is THE location to learn about local Clarksville and Montgomery County history. The building withstood Civil War violence and the latest flood of the nearby Cumberland river. Learn about Olympic medalist Wilma Rudolph and the origin of the 1960's Monkeys son 'Last Train from Clarksville' and, of course, the Civil War and the river floods.... More

We have enjoyed the customs house. We have been several times there (once a month) free Saturday. We enjoyed it. Our kids enjoyed the train exhibit (usually wasn't running when we were there), bubble room, and the play grocery store. It is fun to go to ever once in awhile. Not a place we would probably purchase a membership.

It was free admission day to get in,so we tried it. I found it kinda of boring in some parts. I think if you grew up here you would get more out of it. Most of it is history dealing with Clarksville's past. It's spaced out and not much stood out. They did have a cute kids area for them.... More
