Dragon Dreams Museum

The Dragon Dreams Museum is reopening at 181 River Street in the Coolidge Park neighborhood of Chattanooga. It is under new ownership and is extending Barbara Newton's legacy. It should open by April 2015. The phone number will be the same as before.

Dragon Dreams Dragon Museum

Visited on 2/16/14 and a sign on the front door read: "closed until further notice, and when we reopen, we will only be open in the weekends." Looks like a cool museum. Even the lamp posts outside have dragons on them.

We later took a buggy ride in downtown Chattanooga, and the driver said the owner of the dragon museum passed away two weeks ago.

Dragon Dreams Dragon Museum

This is from their brochure- "Dragon Dreams houses a unique collection of dragons that have been accumulated since 1975. Over 2,000 dragons of all types are on display in eight rooms. See unusual one-of-a-kind antiques, delicate porcelains, hand-crafted figurines and furniture. Dragons made of wood, silver, jade, ivory, pewter, porcelain, and fabric. The colorful collection is a delight to the eye and most people are amazed at the variety of items embellished with dragons. The deversified items range from modern fantasy dragons to medieval style dragons to exquisite oriental designs. The collection is a mixture of modern to antique."

They also have a large gift shop with lots of dragons and other fantasy items.
