  • We went and saw the Norman Rockwell exhibit. It was wonderful - very nostalgic. The museum is light and airy. The staff are very friendly. The train exhibit is awesome. We enjoyed our two hours there. 
  • A lovely museum with unlimited potential for future development. I recently visited with my ten-year-old son and was surprised by the small yet attractive amount of items on display. All of the exhibits were readily available and the place was immaculate. Although, it is a small museum it was certainly worth our time and there are plenty of exhibits to keep you busy for a couple of hours. As an added bonus they have an exploration and discovery area just for kids in the basement. My son fell in love with the bubble makers and kids supermarket.
  • The museum was very enjoyable. I love that exhibits rotate out so often to keep the context fresh. I felt there was a bit missing from some of the exhibits - some more explanation of the material, more background information, etc. for example, in the sports displays, there is a quote on the wall from a baseball player and a newspaper that presumably contains interesting information, but there is nothing to tell who said the quote, or what you're supposed to be looking for in the newspaper. For locals who have been here for a while, the information might be understood, but for someone who moved here less than a month ago, I was a bit lost. I love the Explorer area but would love to see it ramped up a bit and maybe the play grocery restocked with some more durable items. Painted wood blocks make great food packages. The membership is a fantastic value and I gladly purchased one for myself since I see myself going back often for the rotating exhibits, and my granddaughter can enjoy the Explorer area.
  • I wish they were open longer! This is a great family oriented place with things for adults and kids alike- it's good for any age group and they switch out themes and displays to keep things new and interesting. History, art and interesting exhibits! They do parties, too! They have a model train area that's exceptional! Very friendly operators.
  • First let me start by saying that this is a great place for the kids and for anyone that want to know some history about Clarksville TN, so that's where the 3 stars come from. But there is a downfall to this, I also got married here and it was an okay experience. I felt rushed at times, I felt that we did everything that was asked of us in our contract but the museum failed to hold their end of the deal. We put down a deposit and was told we would receive it in a couple weeks, far from a couple weeks. We got married may 21st and we just received a check YESTERDAY 7/11/16, that is unacceptable. If I do everything I'm suppose to do and oblige by the contract than I expect the same, it was very rude not to get calls back in regards to the issues, getting the run around, it was absolutely exhausting. So with all that said I will refer this place as a good place to visit and get knowledge on history but as far as events I wouldn't deal with them until they get more help with events because we had to deal with one person and she was always busy and not helpful at times at all.
  • Great place for children, Great place to make amazing bubbles, Great historical facts, And Very Interesting Plant Sculptures๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ ๐Ÿ’ฏ
