We were in Memphis while our Grandson was having surgery at LeBonheur Children's Hospital. We took the other 3 grandkids to the Children's Museum and they loved it. Spent almost half a day there and the kids really didn't want to leave. There was so much to see and do..hard to pick a favorite but I believe they enjoyed the... More

We recently moved to the area and my kids have been begging to go to a Children's Museum so I finally took them to get us out of the hotel room. They had a blast. They particularly enjoyed the air area where they can put things in the tubes and watch them go through different tubes. Between the grocery store,... More

Son had a great time running around since it rained in the morning of our visit. I guess my drawback here is you have to pay for the outside areas extra unless your a member. Since it opened 15 mins before we left it was nonsense to pay extra

Took 5 grandchildren to the museum last week, ages 3, 6, 9,9, and 12. We spent several hours exploring the inside and then the kids went outside and enjoyed the mini zip line, the play area and finally the sprinkler area. All but the 12 year old enjoyed running through the water. The 12 year old enjoyed helping the youngest... More

I absolutely loved this museum, unfortunately, since our last visit during Christmas (5 Stars then) of last year and our visit this year in May, this place has changed recently. So here I am updated my review, which is not something I really wanted to do, but as a paying member for an entire family, I feel I must let... More

So, my enthusiasm about the unparalleled quality of the many and varied exhibits at this museum is tempered by the hit my wallet took to get in. We had Combo tickets (museum and splash pad ) for 1 adult and 2 kids. It came to was $60! Once I picked my jaw up, we had a ball here. The exhibits... More

Took the kids on a Saturday, to me personally it was a little expensive at $12 per person, and we opted out of the splash pad and outside playground (which was an extra charge). My kids on the other hand loved it so that made the $48 well worth it. We were there for a little over 3 hours and... More

This museum is a must see for children and families. There is so much to do...my kids LOVED it! My 1-year-old son especially loved the wind tunnels for the balls and scarves and the indoor toddler playground area. My 9-yr-old daughter especially enjoyed the grocery store and the bank. If you go during the hot summer months, do yourself a... More

My two boys, ages 6 and 2, loved this. The exhibits inside were fun for both boys. The splash pads were a hit too.

For $12.00 per person, this was a complete waste of money. If you have a 2-4 year old they might enjoy the water feature but this was a waste of money for an 6 year old and older!
