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.

Loved the interaction portions of the museum especially the model railroad area. Didn't like the parking being up a hill.

My son & I arrived in Clarksville early for the play, Grease, so decided to walk around this quaint rather economically challenged downtown city and came across the "Custom House." Located in a lovely Victorian historical home has folk art of the region that is symbolic of the region and customs. What it reaffirmed within me is the need for... More

I really enjoyed coming here, I didn't realize they had so much to do for you and your family. I will definitely be coming back to this place to bring my children so that they may enjoy it as well.

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
