“Kids will love it!!”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

My kids have been to almost every major kids museum in the South. This is one of their favorites. 2 1/2 hours wasn't quite long enough as they were a bit disappointed when it closed at 5pm. Great water area, art creation, music area, dinosaur dig, etc. Really well designed place. Will definitely go back

“Great place to explore with young children”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

Last week, my wife and I took our daughter (5 years old) down to Chattanooga, TN for a day trip with friends. All three of our families have young kids (ranging from ages 2-7). We had a blast! Elaborate water tables, arts/crafts, musical instruments, cultural experiences - they had all sorts of fun activities that kept us busy all day long. If you have young children, this museum is worth a drive for a day trip (or certainly should be included in a multi day trip to Chattanooga!)

Reviewed March 25, 2012

Went to Creative Discovery with my three kids, ages 11, 8, and 3. They all had a good time!! I was worried about my oldest getting bored but he did not! Would recommend anyone with kids going here on your vacation to Chattanooga!

The Creative Discovery Museum is a great place for the smaller children. I have visited many times and I enjoy the themes for the different areas.
