Although I like what they are attempting to do here, it was a disappointment as a field trip. The students were rushed through and many did not even get to try everything. I'm sure it would be more enjoyable on a solo or family visit.

This small museum is one you don't want to miss when visiting Clarksville. In fact, it is worth making a special trip to Clarksville to experience the varied types of exhibits. From art work to full size articles and the historic building itself will be of interest to all ages. The exhibits change rather often, so if you have been... More

We have visited here twice, my daughter 3 times, when we are in town (she... More

Nice museum, lots of local history. We loved the bubble cave but everywhere else my husband was pretty bored with *disclaimer: he isn't a big museum goer.

I visited this museum, the second-largest general interest museum in Tennessee (over 35000 square feet of galleries), with my Clarksville hostess and friend on a sunny Saturday afternoon. The first two rooms feature works by local painters or sculptors or champions, but I became truly interested in the museum when I discovered the wide room on the upper floor, telling... More

just keep them away from the art. The kids museum downstairs has trains and a bubble room. There is a small grocery store that my kids love also.
