The Children’s Museum of Memphis creates memorable learning experiences through the joy of play in hands-on exhibits and programs.

From the "H2Oh! Splash" park and "Outdoor PlaySpace" to the airplane cockpit and disco room, CMOM offers fun for children ages 1-12. Toddlers can retreat to their own special area in "4 & Under," and parents will enjoy the endless opportunities to help teach and play.

Children play to learn! Adults learn to play again! The place where play IS learning!

Incorporated in 1987, the museum is a private, nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization.
