About this activity

We all know that one of the best ways for kids to learn is to play, so why not visit a museum that is ALL about education through play and creativity!

Welcome to the Children's Museum of Memphis

This inspiring, fun and exciting museum in Tennessee gives kids a day of hands-on experience, experimentation and fun. They can use their imagination and creativity to learn, create memories, and really develop their senses.

The Children's Museum of Memphis has exhibits, programs and fun special events for the kids. With over 30 permanent exhibits, as well as rotating ones, you certainly won't be short of learning!

Ever wanted to travel into the air! Well, in the Going Places exhibit kids can become a pilot for the day, experience a real airplane cockpit where they can fly through the clouds in the flight simulator!

A Mississippi River model is waiting to be explored, and in WaterWORKS they can even study live honeybees!

For those future thespians in the family, they can become a star on stage, or paint and scult in the art studio and get those creative juices flowing.

Head on down to the city! Kids can board a real fire engine and pretend to be saving lives all across town, or they can shop for groceries, and even climb a sky scraper!

Feeling active? Good thing there is a disco to dance in! Ready to hear something cool? There is even a water operated organ which actually plays like a piano!

We haven't even begun on the H2Oh! Splash water park! There is an additional entry fee for the park, but between Memorial Day and Labor Day you can enjoy some fun water feature, including turtles, spray loops and geysers! There is 7,700 square feet of water fun!

There is SO much fun and learning to be had at the Children's Museum of Memphis...just make sure you leave overflowing with fun!
