Bring your walking shoes, swimsuit, and sunscreen. This museum offers indoor and outdoor fun for preschool and elementary-aged children. My boys enjoyed playing dress-up at various learning stations. They pretended to be dentists, pilots, firefighters, and policeman. They climbed a tower and flew an airplane. We also liked fishing in the MS River exhibit. When we finished touring the museum,...

I have been going here since I was a little girl. GREAT place to have fun. But know I take my kids here to play and not much has changed on the inside. Love the cops area and fishing area. It only takes about 2-3 hours to play through everything. So for the price and the time spent know being... More

If you are traveling with children this is a good attraction to visit but it is a little over priced. It only takes about 2 hours to see everything they offer and that is taking your time doing all of it. I did not like that they charged extra to play outside considering the price to get in. Overall the... More

Went about 1 hour before closing and the kids didn't want to leave. Seemed to be more engaging for the younger kids 3-10, but our 11 year old also had a good time. We visited without knowing anything about it other than the positive reviews on Trip Advisor. I would rank it better than Indianapolis Children's Museum and reminded us... More

Lots to do, great place to have a little fun and also learn. Wasn't sure about spending the extra for outside play ground but kids enjoyed the zip line.

We visited this museum later in the day about 2 hours before closing. Definitely not enough time to explore everything! A little on the pricey side but, would have been worth it if we were there longer. Tons of stimulating activities with lots of space to roam. Lots of different stations/areas so the kids wont get bored...grocery store, fishing, airplane,... More

I've been to a lot of children's museums and this one is pretty good! I'd say an 8 out of 10! Not bad!

We take my 6 yr & 9 yr old Grandkids & their cousins the same age. There is so much fun things to do. They love to fly the Fed-Ex plane & to load & unload boxes to the plane. They have a grocery store with shipping carts, lots of food to put in their carts. Then when finished the... More

This was my first visit, but won't be my last. Safe, Secure, Well Staffed by friendly caring staff of people. Virtually unlimited hands on projects for the kids (adequate... More

This past Sunday my plans to visit an outdoor attraction with out-of-towners were stymied by nasty, cold, rainy weather (typical for Memphis in the winter months). My guests who had kids ages 2-10 were thrilled when we discovered that the Children's Museum of Memphis opened at 9 AM. My own children are teens, but were excited to return, too. This... More
