This was the highlight of the trip for my 3 year old. She is still talking about it (now over a month later). We spent almost the whole day here. So many fun things for kids to do. Highly recommend it.

Had a crazy trip with my summer group until the last day. Took a group of 50+ students daily and in the last day a staff member named Jill was very rude to the teachers. She wouldn’t let us speak to our groups without interrupting....More

We’ve been so many times, but they’re constantly changing it up. It keeps the kids interested, but in a fun and interactive way. It’s also educational and a great way to spend time together as a family.

We went here on our first day in Chattanooga. My daughter (7) enjoyed it, but quickly did everything she was interested in doing. The centers were geared more towards a kindergarten and younger crowd (coloring, puppets, dress up, etc.).

The parking lot is quite large right behind the museum. I think you could park an RV there.
