  • Took grand children to this place. They had a blast. It is a little worn down from years of service but still a great place to have a B day or just spend the day.  more »
  • Everyone in the SJ area knows the entertainment and recreational value of a trip to the GSDM. No more needs to be said. However, I want to give a huge "shout out" to the Discovery Theater Players for ...  more »

  • We were able to get FREE passes for our first visit to this museum (non-related party), which was our incentive to check the place out! My 20 month old son had so much FUN, and we will definitely return for a second visit. This museum was open when I myself was his age and was GREAT then! It has just continued to grow in popularity, educational values, and added a lot of new and improved features! They also offer packages for parties, private rentals, group rates, etc. Every "themed section" was very clean, and maintained well. When we requested more solution for the "bubble area", a staff member arrived in less than 3 minutes!
  • First, the kids had fun here which is probably the most important point, right? I've seen places like this that were in better condition, but the Discovery Center wasn't in bad shape, either. It's mostly a place to play, with the educational end of things seeming to be less important. But it's still a lot better than having them sit in front of a screen for hours. I'd say the best age range is 3 to 7, or thereabouts. Depends on the kid of course.
  • This place was so amazing. Even more amazing when compared to other children's museums. Everything seemed clean, well used, but clean. There were so many different things to do and we were so impressed with the live theater. We were there for 8 hours with a 1 and 3 year old with a lunch break. It is so fun for adults too. If I didn't live over the bridge I would get a membership. As for parking, there is a small lot out front but a huge one behind the building with a very accessible side walk.
  • This is a thoughtfully put together and well done museum for kids. It is clean and easy to get around. The children's attention spans and desire to play play play is well understood here. Enjoyed my visit here with family.
  • My grandson Henry and I went. We had a fantastic time and we'll go again. My suggestion is if you can go there during the week time it's not as crowded or busy. There's so much to do there for children ages 3 two ages 7 you could be there all day. My favorite part there is the bubbles.
