  • This place is amazing!! So glad we chose this as our family outing in Chattanooga. We've been to other "children's museums" but this tops it our list! Everything is interactive and there are a ton of free make-and-take projects to inspire young minds to be creative. It is very well staffed with caring adults. So impressed!
  • A vast variety of things to do! Awesome for the kids, mine loved everything!! It was all hands on. Fantastic learning experience. For breastfeeding moms they have a very nice nursing room as well! Will definitely be back!!! Highly recommended for family!
