We took my niece and my son and he said it was awesome. They both loved it. They keep wanting to go back. I would highly suggest them to people with children they will love it.

This place has a lot of fun interactive items for kids and very interesting historical exhibits for adults. $28.00 for family of four but well worth it

Children's Museum is a favorite with my kids. The life-size dollhouse and water room are probably their favorites. The entry fee is also very reasonable, so it's an easy pick for a rainy day. We don't live very far away, so I think over time I'd like to see new exhibits or more updates, but if you've never been this... More

For 14 years we have made a side trip to the museum when visiting Gatlinburg. The girls have finally decided they have outgrown the doll house so sadly this was our last year:) The museum has given the girls years of educational and fun memories. I would recommend the museum for ages 3 and up.

We visited here recently and enjoyed it. There were quite a few interactive exhibits for the kids and a lot of interesting things for adults, including a historical view of the area's contribution to the WW2 effort building the atomic bomb. A nice model railroad display is also there. On the third Sunday of the month, the Knoxvile model RR... More

This museum goes to great lengths to be fun for all. Exhibits are very good with the best being the model railroading display. Rooms are available for private parties which include museum access for the guests. Great spot for a child's birthday party and there are typically a handful of those going on most any Saturday. Take your time and... More

My granddaughters came to town for a few days, and my husband and I brought them to the museum for an afternoon of fun. They loved it! It was cheap and interactive! I feel like they learned a lot while having a great time with the family!
