Pretty neat little place, we have been half a dozen, Chattanooga is the best, Huntsville AL is better, Muscle Shoals is better, Columbia TN not as good

This place is not worth the money to get in the door. Not a lot to do. It is very dirty as well. We were disappointed. I will not return.

Good for a rainy or cold day. $8 per person....wish it was per child (or that 1 adult +'1 child is $8, and an additional adult or child from there is also $8), since we have to be there to supervise. My two year old loved it. My husband and I found it to be quite dirty and clearly run... More

Good for a rainy day, with hands on experiments and activities. When my daughter was young, this was a favorite destination.

I take all the children in my family there when they are in town. It is full of things that children can be do. Things that keep their imagination active and things to learn from that are fun. I highly recommend a visit there.

This place needs a major cleaning and makeover. It is rather boring and the staff is not very friendly.

Decided to take our 5 1/2 year old grandson there for awhile. Definitely not worth it. Half the things didnt make noise, no costumes for dress up as specified. He was bored within minutes. Dont waste your time or money.

Nice option for toddlers - those 5 and under. Would not say it is terribly educational, but is great fun and allows little ones the opportunity to use their imaginations. Nice size museum and easy to allow children to roam without being with them every moment.

We had a great time in 2014 and went back on our visit during 2016. Our family painted a tile for the ceiling and it was fun finding it; overall, a great visit and revisit for smaller children.

Wonderful hands on museum with plenty of activities for little ones to keep them busy for a couple of hours on a rainy day. Kids under two are free-adults are $8 each. In addition to free play, there are scheduled experiments every hour or so where a staff person leads a group of children in an activity. Our kids had... More
