  • My kids absolutely love this place. The year pass is totally worth it. We try and go at least once a month. The only reason I didn't give five stars is that some of the exhibits could use some TLC, they are getting a bit run down. It doesn't bother the kids though, so whatever. It's nice that they get new exhibits and activities from time to time. My oldest loved Sue the T- Rex and the dinosaur room. Go during the week if you can, it's much less crowded that way.
  • Took my granddaughter here last Sunday. Hadn't been in couple years. There's so much to do! She always has fun; they definitely have added rooms/exhibits. Few hours of great fun & education!
  • I love the discovery! It’s a place we can go time and time again. With a reasonable membership fee, and rotating exhibits we are never bored. I will sometimes pack a lunch and eat in their cafeteria style seating. A great place to take the kids!
  • We stopped by for a day when we got rained out of our ski plans. This center has a plethora of great hands-on detailed activities. It's better than many other science centers we've visited. The children were fully occupied, and we had to break them away at the end of the day.
  • Amazing. Not as great as COSI in Columbus, OH. But way better than Sacramento's science center. The cloud jungle gym is great and there's so much for kids to explore and build with. I would drive to Reno just for this.
