We purchased a membership and every time we went the owner (older white male) was always so rude to his employees. Not a huge fan of that but the kids like to go and enjoy a few hours. check facebook to see if groups will be there try to avoid the big group days because it is nuts!

The new Splash Pad is worth getting a membership for the summer. My 6yo daughter loves to go and play when it is hot. The outdoor playground is a lot of fun as well. She loves the zip line. There are a lot of activities inside, perfect for any time of the year! She has always loved the grocery store,... More

Been going here for years, but lately the place has gone down to the dogs. It's gotten to be a huge Chuck E. Cheeses - except Chuck has better food. The place is always dirty now and some noisy construction is always a sure bet. The prices keep going up and up which will make it impossible for ALL children... More

I've been going here since I was young and in turn I've taken others there too. It's a mix of fun & education that just needs some more help to keep up and goin

My 2 year old Granddaughter had "the best" time visiting the Children's Museum of Memphis. There were so many hands on things for her to do. Each section she went in she did not want to leave. Fun for the children and adults as well.

We stopped here for our son on our trip. It was great!!! Very well laid out and lots of hands on activities. He is 13 and my husband wasn't sure he would enjoy it. The WHOLE family had a good time!!!

I decided to take my 2 year old here since so many people recommended it. We loved it. There is so much to do for all ages and a lot of interactive exhibits which were great. My son loved the fire trucks and the play area the best. We will be going again for sure.

Our two-year-old son loved the museum. We spent three hours there, and he was busy the whole time. It was a little pricey ($12 each, even for our son), but I think it was worth it. There was a splash park that cost extra, but we didn't go to it since there was so much else to do.
