Children’s Hands On Museum of Tuscaloosa (CHOM) is all about learning through play—visitors are encouraged to touch, feel, and play in the 21 exhibits spread over three floors. In Lil’ Sprouts Farmer’s Market, children can be a customer and pick their favorite vegetables or be a farmer and sell their crop. The Captain Tim Parker exhibit teaches children about river transportation in Alabama from the wheelhouse of a towboat. In the Choctaw Indian Village, visitors can explore a replica of a Choctaw Village from the 1700s and learn about the Choctaw Chief Tuscaloosa (sound familiar?). Other exhibits include The Arts Studio, Japanese House, Beaver’s Bend, and Grandmother’s Attic, and more.
