My grandsons are 7 and 9 and they truly enjoyed our visit. The "flood plains" water feature was a hit, as was the two story slide and the turtle exhibit. There is something to do for toddlers on up to tweens.

This place is so cool. I urge you to invest in the membership program. You get to visit so many museums and zoos for free or half off admission. The adventure science center in Nashville is included. My daughter had a blast at this museum....More

I believe they have different exhibits from time to time and when I was last there they had an automobile exhibit which was very neat and informative. I love seeing the critters and you can enjoy nature on the trail.
