Boonshoft Museum of Discovery Questions & Answers

Nashville, Tennessee

Would this be appropriate for 12 year olds? Didn't know if it's like a children's museum in Memphis our cm is geared towards 5 and under so didn't know if it was like that or not.

I would say yes especially if they have never been there before. There are some animals you can see and a neat little short movie. Twelve year olds are getting a little old for this but if they haven't been I would say go.

They have amazing camps thru summer. My daughter has gone numerous times to the Harry Potter camp. They go all out. The kids have sos much fun.

Yes! Young to old alike - my daughter, 26 and I still enjoy! There are some areas geared to younger children, but overall MANY ages will enjoy many hours at Boonshoft.

I am a 5th grade teacher and we take our students there every year. They love it. The planetarium is wonderful and the animal exhibits are really good. I think a 12-year old would enjoy it.

I am so sorry that I didn’t see your question until now! This museum would be boring for a 12 year old in my opinion. It’s geared towards a younger crowd.
