This facility is getting a brand new carousel!!! This will be an awesome addition to the building allowing for more family friendly activities in this area.

Kudos to the group who runs the museum - super place. Rivals the Please Touch Me Museum in Philadelphia. Well run but not cheap $15 per person including children.

We visited the museum with a 9 y/o and 4 y/o girl. They both had a blast with the whole museum! Favorites were the kitchen area, grocery shopping, crafts, FedEx plane, and of course the outdoor play area! Staff was helpful and very nice. We will definitely be back!

This was a very interactive museum for smaller children. Most of the exhibits are designed for 3rd graders and under. Our 2 and 5 year old granddaughters loved it. Some things required adult assistance.

Enjoyed the children's museum with our 6 year old daughter. We stayed about 2 hours. Would have enjoyed outdoor playground more but was chilly out. There were many hands on activities for our daughter to enjoy. This is a great place to take young children. They also have an area for age 4 and under only.

Do NOT let the price of this place stop you from attending. You will LOVE it. Oh my goodness, this is by far the best museum I have ever been to in my life. My son loved it, my husband loved it, and I loved it. I truly hate that I don't live in Memphis, or I'd be here all... More

We've had a membership at CMOM since my children could walk. It's a great way to spend a day and the traveling exhibits make it nice as there's always something new!

Lots of fun to be explored and discovered here! You can definitely make a day of it. Bring lunch as their options aren't that great.

It took my two grandchildren to the Children's museum over Christmas break. The museum is excellent and they are always updating the exhibits. Our visit was the same day that the Liberty Bowl was held on the next property. Museum staff made sure to keep patrons updated on the traffic situation, which was extremely helpful.
