  • If you're traveling from out of town you MUST visit the DDC for a true taste of the Shore. The DDC is a museum that educates about the nature, history, and culture of this area. For kids and adults alike, truly. Everyone will learn something! If you're a local, get a membership. Festivals throughout the year. Programs for kids all summer. A local gem.
  • Great place to learn about local history and local nature. The kids had a great time here. Would recommend this to anyone visiting from out of town.
  • Great place to take the kids, informative interactive and fun!
  • Great place for the whole family to enjoy and learn
  • What a WONDERFUL children's museum! My family was staying in Chincoteague for a week and drove the extra 20 minutes to this Museum just so my four-year-old could explore. He was overjoyed at the idea of a scavenger hunt throughout the museum. At the time of our visit part of the museum was under construction as they prepared a river otter exhibit. However there were still snakes and turtles and other creatures to examine. There was also a Native American exhibit with a wigwam and an actual Beaver Dam. The Dam exhibit included a basket of beaver puppets for the kids to play with. There was also a gigantic tank for fish and other creatures off of that exhibit. Elsewhere there was a giant riverboat display that kids could board and explore and learn about imports and exports from this area. Kids can also board a small sailboat and work the rudder and they can also examine crab cages and measure toy blue crabs to see if they can keep them or throw them back. There was so many other little things tucked in the corners, a bird display, a decoy display, and other little things, too many to name here but a lot of fun for small children. We ended up returning to the museum later in the week where my son was alone and allowed to run around the museum and learn even more things with a personal guide. I got to chit chat with the lady in the gift shop (I didn't catch her name) but she explained to me that the Discovery Museum also offers STEM workshops for kids. She even let me take a look at their brand new science lab in the back. What a gem. I wish there were more Children's Museums like this throughout the US. This one was awesome and I really am excited to go back and see their brand new otter exhibit when it's ready. Oh and I have to mention their awesome gift shop! Educational toys, puppets, games, locally made jewelry and pottery, gifts, clothes, books, and more! It was a great find. We ended up buying several birthday gifts while we were there. Worth a stop just for the gift shop in my opinion!
