Customs House Museum And Cultural Center

200 South Second Street

Located in the heart of historic downtown Clarksville, Tennessee, the Customs House Museum and Cultural Center is the State's second largest general museum. With over 35,000 square feet of the region's best hands-on activities and special events people of all ages agree - the Customs House Museum is well worth the stop.

Explore an entire city block featuring large gallery spaces filled with fine art, science and history. The Explorer's Gallery is packed with fun, learning and fantasy in Aunt Alice's Attic, McGregor's Market, and of course - the Bubble Cave!  Finally, get "all aboard" to see our fantastic model trains.

Very informative and entertaining. The building itself is historical, it’s very clean, very friendly staff, and wonderful displays. If even has a place for kids, which was a great break for our family! Love it!

Neat small museum in Clarksville. The building itself is historical with interesting architecture and embellishments. Small art gallery featuring a changing selection of artists in a variety of media. The rest of the museum is historical displays and antiques. There is one room devoted to sports and Wilma Rudolph. Cool area for kids to play and a large interactive model train display. Good gift shop. Low admission prices and friendly staff. Watch out for the steep stairs down to a lower level, there is an elevator in the lobby area available.

I did not even know this little Jem was tucked away in the heart of down town. I love museum and this multi level building has something for everyone. Wither you are into modern art, paintings, history or trains, yup I said trains, this is the place to check out. I love that is has it's own free small parking and we did not even know when we went that every second Saturday of the month admission is free. Some art may not be suited for everyone, however the have a couple of great places inside for kids to have hands on fun including a bubble cave.

Not great compared to other museums, but I guess you cannot fault the museum if the town it represents has contributed very little to history. The children's play area is very obviously stocked with local thrift store toys, and the grocery store is sure to reinforce negative stereotypes for little girls. Half of the friction activities were broken with no sign of being repaired in the near future. By far the most impressive attraction was the gift store, perhaps they should drop the entire exhibit dedicated to has-been athletes that no-one outside of the city has heard of and expand the selection of kids toys, it would definitely be a better use of space rather than a race car once driven by a nobody.
