I just love going here! My twin 7 year old boys and I and my 16 year old daughter and her friend went today. She is a little old, but still found things to do. We made arts and crafts, electrical circuits, played giant games of chess and connect 4, felt stories, gem mining, paper air plane contests, built GIANT... More

Stopped in to spend some time out of the sun. The price wasn't bad the kids were entertained for awhile. It's a pretty small place to go, mostly geared towards a younger crowd. The staff was nice and friendly. It's a nice little stop to take up some time during the hot time of day.

Our 2 year old enjoyed his time but his parents were not so thrilled over the lack of cleanliness throughout the museum. There was trash, dust and it just didn't feel very sanitary. The activities were showing their age and could use refreshing too.

After looking at the website I expected a lot more but my children didn't and they were all that matters. It seemed old and run down to me and in desperate need of a makeover. That being said my kids had a blast at 5 and 7 (with special needs). It was worth the groupon to go and when we... More

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.
