Children's Museum of Memphis
Not so much a museum as an educational indoor playground, this place is full of interactive activities for kids. Youngsters can climb a skyscraper, explore a fire engine or "ride" a police motorcycle. Children especially love the miniature grocery store, where they can push their own carts and "shop" for staples, and the play bank, where they can write checks. Special exhibits and activities are also offered every month, including puppet shows and live music.
this place was a waste of money it did not have much of anything the website said it did was not at all educational it was like a big play ground mcdonalds or the park would have been better than this place there was almost no security and the kids was running crazy no parental involvment they could have ran straight out the door the staff was very rude and unhelpful the only thing in the whole place that was decent was the gift shop the only thing my kids liked was that they could pretend they are police i will never evr go back
well first off let me start out by saying that the children's museum of memphis is great for children. i have lived in memphis my whole life and we needed an educational place like this in memphis for our children to enjoy. my nieces and nephews love to come to the children's museum. the only thing i dislike about it is the price for adults its for the children to enjoy i dont think the parents should have to pay to watch their children play. all in all i say keep up the good work.
The "grocery store" area was a big hit with our 3 year old as the check out lanes really scanned items and printed receipts. However, they were only allowed to pick out 3 items to "buy". The art area was very well maintained and clean. We spent about 2-3 hours exploring the museum.
The stage/acting area had a variety of costumes and scenery to let their imaginations run wild.
