Great place to take the family. I loved the painting gallery and the collection of historic American flags. Diverse attractions kept the whole family engaged. they were renovating the interactive area and train set for children. It will be that much better. Great place to take the family.

Nice displays of the history of the Clarksville area. Some art is exhibited as well as a display and play area for children. A nice start if you are new to the area or visiting.

Our local museum is a true treasure. It is very "kid friendly" and the historical collections will appeal to everyone. Check the dates for the running model trains

The first thing about this place is the building. You need to walk around and look at the architecture... wild! Inside you'll find exhibits featuring the local history and frequent art displays.

We took our 3 year old grandson here. He had such a good time in the kids play area and loved the train sets.

I love museums. This one is interesting because of some of the artifacts regarding Clarksville. The museum at Ft. Campbell also.
