We waited until the final hour to visit the splash pad only to learn unless there are at least 4 or 5 kids using the splash pad they won't turn it on. We were the only ones out there. Very very maddening!!!! My kids were in tears. I informed them they need to let patrons know of this rule when... More

The kids had a great time here. We went on Frozen and my young grand daughter loves that movie. She got to see both princesses, hear one of them sing, and get her picture taken with them. Lots of varied interactive things to do here. She loved the water play outside.

My family and I visited the Memphis Children's Museum over the 4th of July holiday. We were pleasantly surprised at how good this museum was for our children. It had creative attractions, exhibits, etc that entertained our children for a couple of hours. Our children did not want to leave the place they had so much fun. Some of the... More

When I went in the spring, I loved the tornado at the end and the earthquake blocks. The bank has a drive-through ATM that connects to the cars across from it. I also liked the cow you get to milk. There was a cat's playground where you get to climb up. There is a kid's Kroger and you get to... More

My child likes going to this museum. We had a good time when we went. It is not some excellent attraction and out of the ordinary though. It is on the average scale when it comes to children's museums. I can see that they need to make some improvements to the facility and the exhibits. The museum is a bit... More

1-100 years is priced the same. Nothing fancy about it and is pretty much the same as other childrens museum. In fact it is a little overpriced.

It was so-so. Many items were broken. Mostly for very small children. Under 5 years old. My 6 year old was kinda bored. This price was way to high for the experience .

We were not that impressed with this museum. The cost is very high for a children's museum ($12 per person--which added up to $36 for us and our 2 year old!). I have to wonder what they use that admission fee for since some of the exhibits seem old, very well used, and in need of repairs or touch-ups. As... More

Took our 2 1/2 yr old (along with a 6 month old, and yes it is stroller friendly) on a Thursday and it was not too busy at all. Prices are pretty good and staff was very friendly. I would have to say our little one liked it. Her favorites being playing in the airplane cockpit and probably when she... More

After taking my 2.5 year old kid to the Pink Palace, we went to the CMOM. This place is freaking awesome. My daughter climbed all over the fire trucks and cop car. She also looted the mini Kroger and the staff was happy to see her do so. The disco room is really cool as well. We went when they... More
