  • It's a pretty good place with lots of places for a kit to explore. We have a three year old son and he loved the space exploration area, and the big multi-level play areas in the center. It's awesome see downtown Nashville from up high. After about two visits though, you will have seen everything there is to see. We've also been to the Discovery Centrum in Chattanooga, which has more options than this one. Still, it's a pretty good place for a small boy to explore.
  • This museum is huge! Great for kids of all ages. There are lots of hands-on activities as well as a gigantic play area in the center of the building. My daughter loves to come here. She loves the BodyQuest exhibit.
  • This is a wonderful place to visit for all ages! Everything from learning about inside our bodies, forces of nature, to outer space! We watched an amazing show at the planetarium, played tons of games and adventured through a 4 story tall jungle gym all the way up inside a giant glass pyramid with a wonderful skyline view of the city!!!
  • Really disappointing. Other reviews are great but our visit didn't match those experiences at all. Place was dirty, toddler area was sad and exhibits in new BodyQuest area didn't work. Big let down. Wish we could get a refund.
  • Amazing. Took our 2 & 4 year old daughter. Both girls had a blast. The jungle gym tower is unreal. It just keeps going up and up until your in the glass peak of the building looking out over the city skyline. Unreal. The space exhibits were very neat too.
