We took our 2 year old daughter to here and had a wonderful time. Plenty of fun and entertaining activities. Also, museum does a great job of picking up after kids. If you pay attention, you'll notice workers constantly moving throughout the exhibit tidying up. This is a definite place to go if you have children and are in Chattanooga.

Didn't really have a convenient place for strollers, or if they did, we didn't notice it. Keep that in mind as you may want to leave stroller in hotel room!

Our 4 year old had fun here, enjoyed playing in the kitchen area probably the most. Many of the exhibits looked as though they had been around a while and could use some updating. There were field trips there when we were, but not a huge deal, we would go to a different area and come back once they moved on, but they were quite rowdy especially in the climbing area, so just keep an eye on the young ones. It is a good value, but some updates would be nice. Also, parking on the street next to the hotel next door was only $1.50 for 2 hours, not sure what the lot costs, but good price on parking there.

Great day at the museum, 9 year old was busy the whole time and the 15 didn't mind hanging out either. Definitely worth making a visit.

This place is ah-maze-ing! There is something for everyone here! This museum features a huge water table, play structures, crafts, interactive toys, sensory activities, outdoor play, infant area, Dino dig, music area, and so much more. Especially considering the price is comparable to any children's museum, there is so much here! We almost didn't go here because there was a review that said the toys we're run down and that is just not so. My only complaint is that my son threw a giant fit when we left he loved it so much!

My daughters (4 and 2) loved this museum, and so did my husband and I. There were so many activities and toys, there wasn't enough time in our trip to enjoy it all. We will just have to go back again!
