Over the Summer I went to visit college friends in Tennessee, and the youngest member of the family introduced me to one of the coolest places on earth. The Creative Discovery Museum in Chatanooga is geared towards kids, but I suspect it speaks to the kid in all of us. Let me tell you; museums weren't like this when I was growing up. (That would be shortly after dinosaurs but before the invention of the wheel.)
This is a place my husband would have loved. I hope he got to share it with me that day.
