We have visited this place about 3 times. Every time we are going through Chattanooga, my kids want to stop. There is plenty to do and we usually don't leave until the museum closes. There are hotels and a nice aquarium within walking distance so it you want to make a day of it, you can. The food is expensive just like at most places so be prepared. Parking is free and the admission price is reasonable.

This is a wonderful plaace for kids to learn about science, history, math, art and music through interactive exhibits and activities. This is one of the best children's museums we have ever been too. The interactive water activities are particularly fun...even for adults!

Lots of fun walking around the Museum. Sometimes areas can be crowded, but there is lots to do and it is a lot of fun. Make sure to check and see what "additional classes" are going on. My kids got to sit in with about 8 others and make pot pies. Great place to play

We took our 2 yr old son here for family free night and it was a HUGE hit. He had a blast and we did too. The water activities and the sand was prolly his fav part. You must visit if you have kids!!

I have two small children (3 and 5) and they enjoy it. We had season passes last year given to us as a Christmas gift. We didnt do the season passes this year but we ddidn't feel as though we went enough to justify having them. They have a water area setup at the very beginning of your tour but they provide smocks to cover the kids up. They have an art area and you can also let them dig for dinosaur bones. They downfall of going is the crowds. If you go on a busy day then you really don't get to see or do much.
