  • While there is a major construction project ongoing next door building a new Discovery Museum, the original three-story house out front is a real treat. Every nook and cranny is packed with intelligen...  more »
  • We took the kids here the other day. When we got there we learned that the main museum was closed for renovation so the kids couldn't enjoy that. The price was 12.50 per person for both children and a...  more »
  • FOR CHILDREN'S MUSEUM ONLY: it was not at capacity when we were there and still there was hardly room to navigate some areas. HIGHLY suggest only 1 adult per kid. There were more adults than kids and it made it hard for the kids to navigate. Tight, stairs, low ceilings. KIDDO ENJOYED IT. will review again when construction is done.
  • We love the Discovery Woods!! We love the natural rock climb and slide area, the fort up there is really fun for the kids too! They also love the giant cargo net, walking down the giant logs, the build-your-own fort area, the pebble play area, pretend cooking in the stick tee-pee's, and of course the giant tree house!! They also love going for hikes in the woods beyond the play area with the "Forest Friday" group. Highly recommend you bundle the kids up no matter the weather and get you there and let them get dirty!!
  • I love how a lot of the exhibits are things one could build on their own. It inspires one to find things in their environment and explore them in new ways.
  • Great place for little ones to explore and play. Only issue are parents who bring older kids, completely not age appropriate and takes over the small space available for little ones. There are signs marked with ages appropriate for 0 to 6 year olds but staff should enforce this. A brand new science center is being built and planned on completion for December 2017. This is exciting and look forward to having my toddlers explore. Otherwise, this would be an awesome place with 5 stars.
  • My grandson had his birthday party there (2) and all the kids had fun. Would have been better if not having all the construction but considering the short time there the kids all had plenty to do.
