  • Great place to spend the day! Love that they have a separate area for kids 4 and under. Paw Patrol exhibit is great and the splash park is such a fun thing for the kiddos during the summer! Plus- $1 snow-cones??? Makes for a perfect day!
  • New Years Eve the museum has a tradition that families have shared for years. This year was our first year and our first visit. There are many areas for kids of all ages to explore. Our two year old grandson had a blast especially in the kitchen. Grandpa had a great time with the water! The exhibits are roomy, entertaining and help to explore Memphis. Highly recommend a trip for the fun of it.
  • On a recent trip to Memphis, our Saturday morning found us up and at 'em for a fun-filled trip to the Children's Museum. We arrived promptly at 9 a.m. (when it opened), enjoyed free on-site parking, and paid our $30 (total) to get in. My 3-year-old son immediately noticed the big FedEx plane to the right of the museum entrance, so our first stop was a stint as pilot and co-pilot in the cockpit. We explored the Mississippi river exhibit, then spent some time checking out groceries at the mini-Kroger before heading into educational exhibits about dentistry, auto mechanics, and more!
  • This museum was great! My two year old child was totally entertained and so were the two adults. There is a little bit for everyone: trucks, planes, water, arts/crafts, cars, dancing, house, grocery store, and anatomy. My favorite part was the restored carousel. I would have given 5 stars, but there were a few exhibits that needed some attention and repair.
  • This is one of the best children's museums in the country! If you have kids, you have to bring them here. It's informative and fun for the little ones. I HIGHLY recommend this place if you have children!!
