Children’s Museum of the Shoals

We invite you to come play with us! Visitors to the Children’s Museum discover by doing. Exhibits encourage children to encounter different cultures, values and occupations. Come explore and see how much fun science and the arts can be!

The museum features a variety of educational hands-on exhibits which promote a better understanding of the Tennessee Valley area’s people, environment and culture. Come visit:

A River Runs Through It – Children can navigate the model river and learn about the Tennessee.

Club Percussion – Visitors experience the beat of the street in the Shoals.

From Blueprint to Building – Everyone enjoys designing and building in this exhibit.

Once Upon a Forest – Children can create and perform with puppets in our one of a kind “tree top” stage.

We are People First – Visitors experience a bit of what being blind or deaf is like when they learn about some of the Shoals’ famous and not-so-famous enabled.

This Little Pig – Explore the market, shop and go back home again with food for dinner.

Artsploration – Be an artist by painting or creating a 3-dimensional work of art with a wide variety of supplies.
