    Went with my vision impaired wife and was treated to a guided tour of the outdoor facility as the main building is being totally renovated. The outdoor facility is great for children in the 3 to 10 ag...  more »

    This was our second time; we had gone exactly a year prior. Now, my son was 2 and a half and could do so much more... think he was a little too young before. So many cute, hand on things so creatively...  more »

    We have come here a few different times, once for a visit and than once for my son's First Birthday! Both times have been amazing. The changes for the Discovery woods are wonderful looking forward to the next big update.

    They have a lot of fun activities to do with kids. The science museum is great for slightly older children and the other building is great for toddlers and preschoolers. I take my nanny kids here all the time and we spend hours doing crafts at the invention station in the science museum. There's a lot of construction going on currently.

    My kids loved this place. The only reason I don't give them 5 stars is that they do not have a designated indoor snack area. They only offer the picnic tables outside and a bench where kids can sit in the discovery area. I understand it is because the museum is an allergy friendly space but a designated eating area would be nice. Other than that, the staff is really nice and helpful.

    We went today and it was way overpriced and I was not impressed at all. My child is two so she did enjoy herself but it was sad. It's just a bunch of themed rooms with a few toys in them. Everything is in desperate need of a makeover at this point. Not something that will probably interest my child later.

    Great place for younger kids to explore, the yearly pass is completely affordable and so worth. My kids go once a week and never seem to get bored.
