I decided to take my 2 year old here since so many people recommended it. We loved it. There is so much to do for all ages and a lot of interactive exhibits which were great. My son loved the fire trucks and the play area the best. We will be going again for sure.

Our two-year-old son loved the museum. We spent three hours there, and he was busy the whole time. It was a little pricey ($12 each, even for our son), but I think it was worth it. There was a splash park that cost extra, but we didn't go to it since there was so much else to do.

I took my 3.5 year old granddaughter who is a member and she knew right where to go. We stayed 3 hours. You can bring your own food and drink or buy something there. I was glad she could run around and feel safe. We will go back.

Kids love it. Parents can sit and rest while kids play. Educational and interesting for the young minds.

OMG!!! This place is awesome for kids of all ages. So much hands on for the kids and adults to do indoors and outside. The splash pad, zipline, outside play area, sand dig area, picnic area. I can't say enough about this place. We bought an annual membership and its 40 miles away. We stay for hours upon hours. Start... More

We love having a membership at CMOM!! We enjoy bringing a picnic lunch and spending the day between the inside and outdoor sprinkler park. If you don't bring lunch, they have onsite food options.

Not the best or largest children's museum I have ever experienced, but it is very good to spend a day with children. In the summer, the rating goes to a 5 star because of the waterpark - kids LOVE IT.

I remember spending my summers here as a child and have tons of fond memories. Now I take my daughter when we are in town. She is just beyond herself when playing here. The variation and abundance of activities are evident when walking in the door. Pretend grocery store, Doctor stations, avionics, tv station, cars, building, hydrodynamics, and the list... More

I went to this museum going up and I just love to take my three kids here now. We usually go during the weekend with daddy, but this trip I made myself during the week. Not near as busy. Kids loved it. Love the dinosaur area and the outside play area. Even though not a lot has changed in 30years... More

Brought our almost 3 year old grandson and he really enjoyed. Very interactive activities. Very clean and well maintained. Kept his interest for over 3 hours! We'll definitely return. Museum is a bright spot for Memphis.
