  • Uneven educational resource for the community. You can see they are trying - hard - to be a strong resource and to do things well. And there is success in some areas of this center. For instance, soci...  read more »
  • This is a small but very well done hands on museum. It gives a great look into the history of the area. The big highlight is the otter feeding. You get to the otters up close which delighted our kids....  read more »
  • Great rainy day visit with the kids. They enjoyed a snake feeding, pretending to steer the steamboat, the Indian village, animal exhibits and gift shop. Husband liked the detailed local history, decoy...  read more »
  • 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!
  • Great place for kids and families. Not very big, but they just got a new otter exhibit that is great!
  • A great place to bring the kids.
