  • My two oldest are 3 and 4.5 and just love it here. They love that they have the freedom to play and use their imaginations. My girls especially love the ambulance and the tree house with the live bird in it!
  • Great place for younger kids. You can get a year membership for this place only $75 and it's unlimited. We love this place!
  • The Discovery Center is a place for a great family outing, with lots of interactive activities for kids of all ages. They have rotating exhibits to keep things fresh. Without the annual membership (if you can justify it) the Discovery Center can be a bit expensive. But several solid hours of entertainment can be had by all in a single visit, making it a day-long destination.
  • Just as fun as I remember it 30 years ago. My son enjoyed it this time around!
  • Some of the stuff feels a little dated and my kids didn't really connect with those parts, but overall they had a blast and didn't want to leave. I wasn't sure what exactly to expect, but it's more like a bunch of areas setup with a specific theme that they can interact with (eg grocery store, dentist, diner, bank, etc) and not so much a hands-on science museum, which I thought it might be. There's also a lot of areas setup for education about various topics. Overall a great place, especially for toddlers to mid grade school aged kids.
