DescriptionThe Children’s Museum of Memphis is packed with quality informal learning experiences that are both fun and educational. The hands-on, interactive exhibits allow children to discover science, math, health, art and more – all in a fun new way!

Children take to the air in Going Places with a flight simulator, air traffic control tower, hot air balloon, wind tunnel and a real airplane cockpit to explore. Kids go on a trip down the Mississippi River in WaterWORKS! as they experiment with the flow of water in a 50-foot model of the mighty river, study real fish, build a bridge and see it “rain” inside. There are also two Honeybee Hives where visitors discover the inner workings of a real beehive!

Visual and performing arts are explored in Art Smart as children become “stars” on stage by dressing in costumes and using props, paint, sculpt and draw in the art studio, weave colorful patterns on a loom, play a color wheel game, and create computer animations. Cityscape still has all the old favorites in a miniature city! City Friends allows children to explore a fire engine, police motorcycle, sheriff's car and more. The Tree House lets kids explore tree conservation and the forest as they talk to Grandma Willow and build paper airplanes. It's time to have a good time in the Time Square exhibit with a Sir Dance-A-Lot children's disco. Smiles, Inc. gives visitors the chance to see how the dentist helps them take care of their teeth. Kids can also climb a 22-foot tall Skyscraper. Children love to shop for groceries in the Kid’s Market. Kids love to get play money from the Bank exhibit after they write a check. Your House, My House shows children how a house is built. The Garage allows visitors to “drive” through Memphis on a virtual tour and see how automobiles work - there's a Child Passenger Safety Van, too. And Playscape is a play area just for children four-years-old and younger. New traveling exhibits are featured every 3-4 months in the Van Vleet Gallery.

Newest exhibits: Tornado Generator, Train Safety and Earthquake Simulator!

The museum is open seven days a week 9 am-5 pm. Admission is $10 ages 1-100 and children under one are free.
