I have been to the Museum with my kids and with school groups. Love when they have special days and it is also a great place to book a birthday party for young kids. With school group (2-3rd) it is al... read more »
We love the children's museum. We actually had our son's last birthday there. They were so accommodating and helpful. The kids always love it. For a hands on museum, the Children's Museum is top.
I visited with my 1 year old son. We were able to find parts of the museum that he really enjoyed. He liked the boat, the trains, and the space room. The weather was not the greatest, so we didn't get... read more »
This place is great. Some of the exhibits are a little old and run down, but there is still so many great things. There is a life size doll house for kids, small boat racing, and many other neat and educational exhibits for children and adults. We go at least once a year or more.
Great, cheap place. You're not exactly getting a Smithsonian, but can't really beat an easy way to kill a Saturday with a little kid for the price. The life size doll house is fantastic. Took forever to lure my kid out of it and the see the rest.
I'm disappointed that there were not more educational information in the exhibits that had "animals", even if to indicate a name of the creature. There were a couple rooms that had private parties going on where we awkwardly walked into because there were no signs indicating there was a party (and the doors were open). It didn't take long to figure out the museum building is in fact an old school and the rooms/areas that were closed, gave off a creepy vibe. We were so excited for our son to see the caboose outside only to find out at the very end that it's only accessible to visitors one day a month. We attempted to contact the museum before our 30 minute drive out there to inquire more about the exhibits but were connected to an answering service without an option to speak to a person. Our 2 year old seemed to enjoy himself but I really don't think we'll come back. There are many updates and cleaning that need to be performed in this museum. Oh and bathroom stalls don't have locks.
When we lived closer to Oak Ridge, we usually had a yearly pass for our entire family. The kids loved coming here to explore the exhibits and play with all of the hands-on displays. Their favorite area was either the giant toy house (where they could actually play inside of a child-sized, two-story home) or the water room. Great memories.
This place is amazing, and full of historical memorabilia. Check out the future home!
