The Art Project

The Art Project is a place where kids can go paint, make crafts and parents can hangout. From art free play to storytime & crafts, parents can sit back and sip coffee as their kids paint like Picasso. All ages are welcome, but the most successful ages are 18 months to 12 years old. They also have creative painting classes for adults, too!


Children’s Museum of Memphis
2525 Central Ave

Okay, CMOM will always have a special place in my heart. Over 15 years ago, my sister’s aquifer informational video played over the Mississippi River exhibit, and I was the cute little voice asking you to leave a message if you called the museum and they didn’t answer. Your kids will have the utmost fun with 30+ exhibits, pop-up activities, and traveling exhibits to play all day. They can ride the firetruck, be a dentist, stock up at Kroger, ride the iconic carousel, and way more.
