Good for kids

went with friends who had kids- they really seemed to enjoy the place. Noticed it was busy and all the kids seemed to be enjoying themselves.

Pretty neat exhibits- some though are quite dated. The outdoor areas are wonderful. For a city with many financial issues, the CMOM pulls off a fun place for the family to enjoy here.

We have been here a few times with my son who is now 3.5. We did Breakfast with the Easter bunny, we have done outside water play at the splash pad and have just been on a cold rainy day for something to do. We have always had a good time. My son loves the FedEx plane and package area.... More

An outdoor splash pad, incredible inside exhibits, fun fun fun everywhere .....parents should come prepared to hang out for a while at this place so pack everything you need to ensure the kids are able to take advantage of all this place has to offer!

Live in Germantown, which just outside Memphis so its just a 20 minute ride. Cannot keep my 6 year old grand daughter away from the museum, plenty of hands on for the kids and always new things to explore. If you have young kids museum is highly recommended

My family has been to the museum many times, we even had a birthday party there! It was fantastic! So many different areas that the kids love. Especially Kroger! What kid doesn't love checking out your groceries?! A half a day trip for sure, A must see while in Memphis.

If you take small children to the wonderful Children's Museum of Memphis and you all don't have a good time, you just aren't trying. We are just back from a visit to CMOM that involved a 3-year-old and a 7-month old, a dad and two grandparents. The museum, although it's better described as a massive interactive gathering of activities, just... More

This is a great place for younger and older kids. Mine are 7 & 10 both had a blast! We also purchased the outdoor play pass which was worth it. We were there on a beautiful day! We went around 10 on Sunday morning and practically had the place to ourselves. Perfect time to go.

We had a couple hours free after leaving Pink Palace so my son and I visited about two hours before closing. We did not purchase the splash pad tickets because I felt it was too expensive and we did not have enough time. After seeing the area from the outside, I was glad I did not purchase the tickets. I...

This is really more of a very cool playland than a museum, but our niece had fun. Surprised how small this place is, but what they do have kept her attention. We stayed two hours and had plenty of time. $12 per person regardless of age is a tad bit on the expensive side, but I appreciate the free use... More
