  • The current slime exhibit is a lot of fun. The discovery center is always a staple of fun for learning in Boise. My only complaint would be that I think some of the exhibits are as old as I am. Would love to see more newer stuff. The Toddler are is a fantastic new addition though!
  • We came with my niece to see Sue the T-Rex, which I was pretty excited to see as well. Sue was great, and there was some good information for my niece to learn. However, we came in a Saturday so it was packed, which I kind of expected, but we had a hard time getting to use all the little gadgets they had. And the slime, which she was most excited about, was being carried around by a little boy the whole time we were there. Now, kids will be kids, but sharing is caring and the was a lot of people who weren't actually watching their kids here at all. I would recommend a visit here for the kiddos but it's going to be a few years before we return again.
  • My daughter and I love, love, love the Discovery Center. It's a great place to go spend a day playing around with all the experiments. There's a park just a small Bridge away in case kids get bored or need to use their muscles run around for a bit. It's also right across the street from WinCo and Whole Foods in case you get hungry and need some lunch.
  • The dinosaur exhibit (SUE) was excellent. The rest of the center had fun, hands-on science, specifically geared to young kids.
  • We purchased a Family Pass and added a Grandmother for a small additional fee. So worth it. Lots of things to do for a lot of age brackets. The grands love it and this grandmother loves enjoying their joy!
