  • This is a great place for families or even just adults. Lots to do and see. All hands on activities for kids and adults alike. The aquarium is just as fun and exciting with touch tanks to touch some f...  more »
  • We just visited today with our 3 year old and 5 month old. There is a wide variety of areas to visit and everything is extremely interactive! My one complaint is that it wasn't great for young kids. M...  more »

  • Awesome experience! I would love to go back. The touch tanks were my favorite part, but the physics side of the place was cool too! I loved being able to test physical principles and go on the hamster wheel.
  • It's was fun to see and participate in all of the physics experiments. The robots are cool but they kind of take forever to do their thing. For a good prank, put your hand on the tesla coil and first bump a friend. Make sure to make a mask or a hat before you leave.
  • I already recommended Discovery World to everyone I know, and posted all over Instagram. Just amazing! I was a kid again, chaperoning this field trip:) Thank you, Discovery World! The staff in the art area was so great! Kind faces everywhere. We touched a sturgeon also!
  • LOVE, LOVE, LOVED!!! My husband and I played big kids for a day. This was a great spot to try. Lots of hands on activities included in the price. The highlight of my day was the Kohl's Design Lab, where you get to complete art projects for FREE!! MY husband really enjoyed the flight simulations. We will be back for other exhibits.
  • I'm having my wedding reception at the Pilot House here and the view is breathtaking. Working with the staff has been a breeze and I can't wait to have a magical day here!
