We invite visitors looking to engage their children with kid-specific programming to visit the new TSM Kids section of our website at TNMuseum.org/kids.
With a whimsical design inspired by Tennessee’s many state symbols, the Children’s Gallery encourages children ages 3-8 to explore, play, and discover Tennessee’s history and culture in a hands-on way. Take a tour of Tennessee by walking along a giant map of the state, stopping along the way to learn what makes Tennessee unique and extraordinary. Try on period and rock n roll costumes in our West Tennessee STAX Records area that pays homage the Memphis's music history. Discover how Reelfoot Lake was created with our earthquake table. Run your own farmer's market in Middle Tennessee. Play with trains in Chattanooga and explore all the Great Smoky Mountains have to over in East Tennessee. There's even an area to trace fossils from the Gray Fossil Site!
However you decide to engage with the gallery, discovering Tennessee in the Children’s Gallery is sure to be an adventure.
The Museum is equipped with family bathrooms which include changing tables. There are two family bathrooms located on the first floor behind the Museum Store and across from the Visitors Lockers.
