AAA Editor Notes
Discovery Park of America is at 830 Everett Blvd. This 50-acre indoor-outdoor park engages visitors of all ages with interactive exhibits about history, the military and science. Centered prominently outside is a 100-year-old church, discovered in middle Tennessee and purchased specifically for the park, as well as an 18th-century schoolhouse, a working gristmill, a rail depot with train cars, a replica 1700s public square and a frontier settlement with log cabins.

Ten learning galleries inside the Discovery Center feature everything from a working Gutenberg printing press and the Wright brothers' first airplane to a 22,000-gallon aquarium with sea life and a STEM Landing exhibit featuring a rocket engine and a Blue Angel airplane. Military enthusiasts will want to check out the collection of military vehicles—including a PT-17 Stearman bi-plane suspended from the ceiling—and climb into a Vietnam-War era helicopter.

An indoor playground and a giant slide housed in a 60-foot-tall replica of a human body are kid-friendly favorites. The Children's Discovery Garden offers an outdoor play area. Special exhibits available for an extra fee include an earthquake simulator, a starship theater and a 120-foot viewing tower with a glass elevator and glass floor panels.

Picnicking is permitted. Food is available.
