  • There was lots to do for my daughter (2.5 years old). She liked the water feature on the first level, the art center (painting and drawing tables, and 'play' world where she could pretend to work at a...  more »

  • My son loved this place. He is 10 and spent 4 hours there and still wanted to stay. I think this is the best children's museum I've been to. It had a lot of fun stuff to keep my son interested and me as well. I loved how there was so much staff around. They were everywhere and were always eager to answer questions and show us how an exhibit worked. I loved that there was a lunch room. Parking was so easy and happened to be free on the day I went. I'm not sure if it is always free or not.
  • The Skinny: a great way to spend a few hours on a weekend afternoon (5); Protip: Bank of America card holders can get in for free the first weekend of every month, parking is free in the parking garage (5). We love the Discovery Children's Museum for our little one. Although she is just a toddler, we are able to find lots to entertain her for a couple of hours. Whether it's crafts, STEM or cultural activities, there is something for everyone here. My little one loves the water area and loves experimenting with the plastic balls that they have there. She also enjoys the numerous "pick a job" opportunities which include health care professional, banker, grocer, construction, and mechanic. She also has a lot of fun with the ATM to cash in her paycheck. She hasn't really expressed interest in the fantasy area with the pirate ship and the castle as of yet however that area is really well done as well. Toddler Town is a nice little sanctuary for the younger children as some of the other exhibits are dominated by the older kids. The kids seem to get a huge kick out of putting fake rubber coal into large green wheelbarrows and wheeling them around. There is a smaller quieter area where a mom can go breastfeed her baby. I really like the fact that have a rotating exhibit 3-4 times a year. From nanotechnology to a cultural tour of Japan, she's enjoyed every exhibit so far and it keeps the museum interesting throughout the year. Overall, one of the best places to go with a young child here in Vegas.
  • I have taken my nieces and nephews here for a few years. It is so much fun for them!! They always have a great time. If you have little ones make sure you bring a change of clothes as there is a water fun room in there that they will get wet in. They do have raincoat smok things to try and keep them dry but they still get wet. The floors are designed for different age groups and the upper floors may not be for the little ones but who knows they may enjoy it. All in all if you have kids in your party whether you are visiting or live here you should definitely go to the Discovery Kids Museum!!
  • My kids love this place. BUT I have to admit that I have a lot of fun here too. There are always really cool things to look at and play with. I particularly enjoy the water works exhibit. I might have pushed a few kids out of the way who tried to mess up my creation. No I'm lying. There are season family passes available for around $90 to $100 and they come with guest passes as well. Truly worth the money for kids and adults who are still kids at heart (mostly dads.)
  • We have been long time patrons of the museum. We had family passes when it was on LV Blvd, but this was our first time visiting since the relocation. I miss some things about the old location but overall it has improved. Take extra cash with you, there are craft tables and add-ons everywhere. It is a cool place to visit but it may not hold your kids interest for as long as you want. That being said, it is worth visiting at least once. The water room alone is worth the price of admission. But be sure to take a small child with you since the funnest activities are for the little kids!
