MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) - Summer still doesn't start for about another month, but with most schools out for the year...  Families in the mid-south consider today the unofficial start of summer!

We want to share with you a place where families can grab some sun and fun while keeping your brains active.

One of the great things about the Children’s Museum of Memphis is that it’s mostly indoors. That’s great for moms and dads who have to entertain the kiddos year round. But now CMOM is offering an outdoor activity that is water cooled. It's the brand new H20 splash water park.

It is now open for visitors, just in time for the end of school and hot weather. And, for members the water park is just the right price.

"This year it’s open for free to members. If you’re a member of CMOM you get in the water park free. This means you save 12 dollars per person. In less than a week with your family membership you will get all your money back. So, what we’re trying to do is add value to the membership” according to the CMOM’s Dick Hackett.

What a concept! When was the last time anybody you know gave you something for basically nothing?

The Children’s Museum now holds  a record number for memberships. Over the years, grow has continued.  Customer service has kept those numbers growing. You could visit CMOM everyday and still find something new every time you visit.

"We grew 4% last week alone and we think a lot of it has to do with the water park and the quality and changing exhibits. We change exhibits every single day we have a construction staff and have them constantly changing exhibits,” Hackett says.

Allison Weems, a visitor at the CMOM says, “We planned on being first. We got the email this morning that it was opening early. It’s a beautiful sunny day and we ended school yesterday and then it just turned hot. So, we decided to come here straight away and the kids are excited. It’s the place to be on a hot day.”

For mom and dads, keep this in mind, there is shade nearby the splash park and places to sit down. Good thinking…fun and education, that’s what it’s all about. And now fun in the water at the Children’s Museum of Memphis.
