Welcome to
Creative Discovery Museum


Creative Discovery Museum is one of the top children's museums in the country. Located in the heart of downtown Chattanooga, just steps away from the Tennessee Aquarium, Tennessee Riverfront and other fun Chattanooga Attractions for kids.


Tennessee Tax-Exempt Weekend is July 29 and 30. 

Just a reminder: Tennessee's sales tax holiday weekend is this weekend. Don't forget to swing through our Museum Shop and stock up on fun shirts, pencils, and other school supplies that will get the new school year off to a fun start!
