  • This place is great. They have special “crawling babies only” areas and they have so many areas for the older ones of all ages. A diner where they can “make “ and serve pretend food. A construction ar...  more »

  • We had a really fun time at the museum. It had a lot of different theme rooms and areas for kids to play. My daughter is 15 months and while she had fun I would say that in the coming months she would start to really enjoy this. They did have a separate area with a gate that was for 0-4 but it was small. We spent a bit of time there. Overall we would definitely go back again. Not sure if it would be worth it for us to get a membership but for 2 adults and her it was $44.
  • My girls are two and one and they really like this place. But, my only issue is that they don't have a lot for my one year old to play with. I feel like this place is more prone to children who can walk and do stuff by themselves. You also have to watch your children here like a hawk -- bigger kids like to push and move the little kids out of the way. But, overall -- they love it. I'm a member and we frequent it a lot. It also is very clean.
  • My kids really like this place, it is basically an indoor playhouse with loads of different areas to play. We can easily spend an afternoon here. It's ideal for kids from about 3 - 12. I highly recommend the family membership which can also extend to Paws Farm. The Discovery museum is perfect for rainy days and winter, and Paws Farm is great for warmer days and outdoor play.
  • An incredibly fun way to spend the day with your kids. There are multiple rooms where kids can do everything from playing basketball, making pizza, playing with the huge Lite-Brite, to pretending to be on the local news channel. I was pleasantly surprised by the incredibly fair prices in the souvenir shop and the restaurant as well. Will definitely be back.
  • They have a variety of things for the family and kids to do. Many different sections: sports room, theater/dance room, story time room, dinosaur room (with a play place), pretend restaurant, pretend pizza place, pretend auto repair, pretend boat area (all pretend areas well designed to look realistic, just miniaturized for kids), behind glass turtle tanks, pretend ambulance, pretend doctor's office, pretend shopping center, science section, night time explore section. They had A LOT! It was amazing how much they fit in there. My son has autism, so with how much they had, he was very excited and kept interested.
