  • My grandkids enjoyed the museum. It's hands-on and it's located in downtown Chattanooga which makes it convenient. You can also come and go for the day with a daily admission. 
  • My 2.5 yr old son had a blast. I was surprised that there were not more people there. He basically had the whole place to himself. Some of the exhibits were broken or did not function properly, that's...  more »

  • Lots of fun for kids and adults. You can spend hours in here with your kids and they will have a blast. I have to admit I enjoyed it as well. There are also plenty of places to sit while watching your kids play. Highly recommend visiting this with your family!
  • Needs a much needed renovation inside. Fix the broken areas. And clean the exterior of the building. The building should promote discovery, imagination, and good vibes. But it looks somewhat rundown, and in a desperate deep cleaning. I expect bright colors, and shiny presentation to accompany the name of this museum. Not black stained walls, and dirty glass. Step it up! There's no excuse it can't be better than it is right now.
  • THIS PLACE IS FANTASTIC!!!! MY TWO YEAR OLD SPENT ALL DAY HERE!! SO MUCH TO DO :) A MUST IF YOU ARE IN THE AREA AND WORTH EVERY PENNY!
  • It's a wonderful play place for kids of all ages. While playing games and doing activities the kids learn a lot about nature and the world around them
  • Great for all ages. I thought I would get bored, but ended up having a great time! Informative and Fun!
