Creative Discovery Museum Review

I took my daughter, 17 years old, to the Creative Discovery Museum on June 20, 2015. We drove 2 hours from Jefferson City, TN to downtown Chattanooga, TN (Including one stop to get biscuits at Bojangles in Cleveland, TN.)

I first learned about this place when I went to the Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga last year, we actually went almost one year prior to here.

As we entered the building, I gave them my tickets. The front desk person told me since I didn’t have a child with me that I had to leave me ID with them. I believe in the state of Tennessee this was illegal to hold an ID like that. I am not totally sure, but I believe I have heard that. They wanted one from my daughter too, I am like she is still a minor under age. I will comply and give you my ID, but they made me feel like I was a criminal entering the building.

As my daughter and I toured the place, we noticed this museum is geared for more younger children. I would say elementary children and below. There were a few things that were for some older children. My daughter and I loved the music area where you could play musical instruments.

My daughter loved the new and expanded workshop area. Dads if you have a young boy, they can hammer, nail and drill. Moms if you have a young girl you can make a pillow. I found out they Museum will accept donations of scrap material, so the children can make these pills. Plus they take other types of recyclables. You can contact them for a list of what they take.

I would have to say the best part and the friendliest area was that craft and workshop area.

I know one thing for us Christians, we must watch the data that this place uses. Like in the dinosaur area, it says billions of years ago. If we read the Bible and know the Creation story, we know the earth is only a couple to a few thousand years old. So while you are here you can go over the Creation story with your family.

There is a good bit of Science in this museum. There is a lot for your child to play as well including a rooftop play area. They did even have a observation tower where you can see part of downtown Chattanooga, TN. Your child can do a numerous arts and crafts and even visit the Inventors Clubhouse.

You can even see some huge roaches, a tarantula, scorpion and more.

The top floor I believe changes what it has on exhibit. Right now it has trains featuring Thomas the Train.

I believe if my daughter was much younger she would have enjoyed this museum much better. I believe if you have younger children you should take them to this museum. Even one mom talked to me and told me the Children’s Museum in Atlanta, GA is geared for even younger children, she thinks this one in Chattanooga, TN has stuff for a little bit older children. But if you have teens, I do not believe they would like this museum that much at all. But, in a way it seems fun for an adult too, cause you can be a kid for a short little bit too.

Also note that you must pay to work in downtown Chattanooga, TN.
