Rated the #7 children's museum in the U.S. by Trekaroo in 2015.

We took our 2 year old grandson and spent over 3 hours watching him have a great time! It is a wonderful place and, certainly, not over priced. I would highly recommend.

We let our older kids (middle school) talk us into this. It is a wonderful place full of learning and adventure for young kids. Ours were too old. Tho they found some stuff to do, I'd skip if they are double digits.

I think it was around 40 dollars for two adults, one 5-year-old and a 18-month-old, that got in free. Compared to other way overpriced Chattanooga attractions, this was perfect. We spent a couple of hours and had a wonderful time. We could have spent more...More

I would highly recommend this place to anyone with children going to visit Chattanooga. It was inexpensive and my granddaughter had so much fun. I have to admit, I had a good time too.

This is a nice little museum but it is mainly for young children about 10 and under. There are lots of things to do and see with tons of hands on activities. If you have little ones you could occupy them for hours in here.

The parking lot is quite large right behind the museum. I think you could park an RV there.

My wife and I feel they would love it. But, it would be optimal if 2 adults or a buddy for the 8 year old could go. The exhibits, in our opinion, tried to stage for each age and had some for all ages. Your 15 month old... More

Honestly, there are a few areas that a one year old would enjoy, like the sand and water, but I don't know that it would be worth it that young. The sand would just be like any other sand box since the "dig" wouldn't really... More
