I visited the children's museum of Memphis with my two kids, ages 5,7. We visited last year and the kids were excited to go back. This year, we noticed were some exhibits that were broken or closed. The boys favorite is still the large FedEx...More

Recently visited the children's museum and it was a huge hit with a 3 and 4 year old. Absolutely loved the splash pad. Very nice area and they have "life guards" to make sure all the kids are playing nice and know one is acting...More

Perfect place for young children. They love all the interactive activities. The grocery store was a big hit. The airplane was a lot of fun. The air tubes moving the balls in the scarves around was amazing. Great place to visit on a rainy day....More

We made the trip with our 1 1/2 year old. He enjoyed all of the exhibits! We chose to visit in the afternoon once all the field trips had left for the day. It is so helpful that they post that information on their website....More

Took my 5 year old son, 9 year old cousin, and 2 fourteen year olds. Never would've thought the teens would've had just as much fun as the smaller 2. They explored the whole museum and had so much fun, from grocery shopping, to fishing,...More
