We visited Discovery Park of America in Union City, TN yesterday (6/28/20) with my 5 year old granddaughter. I highly recommend this attraction especially when we all have concerns about visiting venues such as these during this crazy time. In terms of cleanliness, I would rate this park a 10. (They are currently closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays for deep cleaning.) The 100,000 square foot museum has something for everyone - classic car collection, aquarium, fossil and space exhibits, all of which are excellently presented. There is a separate admission to experience an earthquake simulation which occurred in the nearby New Madrid fault area in 1811. The tower experience is also an extra fee. In addition to the museum, there is a 50 acre heritage park with primitive outbuildings, many of which were moved to this park to depict rural life in the 1800s. This was one of my favorite parts of the park.

We had driven about 2 hours to get here with our 13 yr old granddaughter, so we ate lunch in the cafe first. It was very good food and very reasonably priced. It was almost 1 before we began our tours. We started outside with the old settlement, then the antique tractors, 1 room schoolhouse, Blacksmith shop, Gristmill, Blue Angel & Thunderbird planes, Huey Helicopter, Moon Dome and Missile. We might have covered 1/5 of the outside. Inside the museum we saw some of the items on lower level & entry level. Antique cars, Military Gallery, torture chamber exhibits, Native American Gallery. Never made it to the 3rd level! There is soo much to see, we will definitely have to come back. We highly recommend Discovery Park of America.

There are many things to see, no matter your age. Things for the young ones and for the older folks. It is always clean, yes even the restrooms. You can get hot outside but, then go back inside to cool down.

We usually go to the Discovey Park of America a couple times a year, it never gets old. You can easily spend the entire day exploring their exhibits. The grounds are vast and there is alot to look at inside and outside. Surprisingly the cafe has delicious food! I would highly recommend taking a trip there.
