We were recently visiting family in Mississippi for a wedding and decided to drive to Memphis for the day. The weather was rainy, so we chose the children's museum to take our daughter to. They have lots of interactive areas to explore. Our 5-year-old daughter had a great time checking out all the activities. We spent about an hour here... More

Perfect place for young children. They love all the interactive activities. The grocery store was a big hit. The airplane was a lot of fun. The air tubes moving the balls in the scarves around was amazing. Great place to visit on a rainy day. Even on a sunny day, that only adds more activities because the outside activities. Highly...

We made the trip with our 1 1/2 year old. He enjoyed all of the exhibits! We chose to visit in the afternoon once all the field trips had left for the day. It is so helpful that they post that information on their website. We basically had the place to ourselves for the last three hours of the day... More

Took my 5 year old son, 9 year old cousin, and 2 fourteen year olds. Never would've thought the teens would've had just as much fun as the smaller 2. They explored the whole museum and had so much fun, from grocery shopping, to fishing, to seeing birds and tornados. If ever I'm in Memphis I will definitely stop by.... More

This facility is getting a brand new carousel!!! This will be an awesome addition to the building allowing for more family friendly activities in this area.

Kudos to the group who runs the museum - super place. Rivals the Please Touch Me Museum in Philadelphia. Well run but not cheap $15 per person including children.

We visited the museum with a 9 y/o and 4 y/o girl. They both had a blast with the whole museum! Favorites were the kitchen area, grocery shopping, crafts, FedEx plane, and of course the outdoor play area! Staff was helpful and very nice. We will definitely be back!

This was a very interactive museum for smaller children. Most of the exhibits are designed for 3rd graders and under. Our 2 and 5 year old granddaughters loved it. Some things required adult assistance.

Enjoyed the children's museum with our 6 year old daughter. We stayed about 2 hours. Would have enjoyed outdoor playground more but was chilly out. There were many hands on activities for our daughter to enjoy. This is a great place to take young children. They also have an area for age 4 and under only.
