Creative Discovery Museum is an inclusive, award-winning children’s museum in the heart of downtown Chattanooga. With a variety of immersive arts and science exhibits, there’s something for the entire family to explore! 

Your adventure into the world of STEAM begins in Tennessee RiverPlay, with water tables featuring a lock and dam system and an engine room to explore the inner workings of a towboat. In our newest exhibit, Little FarmHouse, practice your mechanic skills in the garage and learn about life on the farm. 

On the second floor, your Innovator adventure continues through ArtSpace and STEM Zone! Create a masterpiece in the Art Studio, practice fly-tying in Appalachia Arts, maneuver a robotic arm to build a tower, and launch a rocket into space! 

Our new Temporary Exhibit gallery is hosting Doc McStuffins: The Exhibit through May 7, 2023! Experience the first children’s museum exhibit based on Disney Junior’s award-winning series, Doc McStuffins. Join the magical storytelling as you help Doc and her friends in the new McStuffins Toy Hospital! Doc McStuffins: The Exhibit is produced by The Children's Museum of Indianapolis and presented by Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health.
