  • The Discovery Gateway in Salt Lake City is a shopping centre that is boring and match report. There is a lot of vacant property and there are many shops of B-garnish.

  • We decided to try this place after getting our annual Boonshoft Museum pass that included this place as one of their reciprocal participants (but no longer free admission, it is now 50% off). I honest...  read more »
  • I come here for a few years, but this time it fell. Many vacancy in this mall and it came also messy and not cleaned up. There is still a Barnes and Nobles and that's fine. I have the suspicion that many stores to the new outdoor mall in downtown have moved.

  • There are so many great things about this place. It has potential. A lot of the stuff is old and broken. The new move it exhibit is fun. It would be awesome if they sold food there or at least had better vending machine options. But bottom line, my kids love it, it has good a/c, and it's super cheap for a year membership.
  • My kids (1, 4, and 6 years old) love this place. We have a membership and use it regularly. We love that they are always adding new exhibits and that it is never very crowded, and it is open on Sundays. Everything is hands-on. The kids love the real helicopter and the play grocery store and house.
  • My kids have fun here everytime. There is a variety of places to play and use ones imagination as well as experiment and learn on the science stuff upstairs. My three tear old wont stop talking about the helicopter on the roof. I only wish they would have more structured play events and also change things up a little more, we have been coming for about five years and its mostly the same.
  • I wouldn't be a bit surprised to find this place being investigated by Gephardt. When I visited with three family members I produced my membership which reads I am allowed 3 guests. Both the manager and the attendant tried to convince me that it doesn't actually mean three guests and 2 members as the card reads. Instead I am allowed up to three guests after counting the one or two members present. The manager brushed me off saying she didn't care. Saying the card was written correctly when it obviously wasn't. Needless to say confusing logic and poor communication. Also, system and exhibits need a complete overhaul. Most attractions, as another reviewer stated, do not work properly. And the main attraction that drew my kids interest, the large building blocks upstairs, were replaced for an exhibit similar to the town downstairs. Haven't visited since and will not be renewing membership.
  • Too pricey for the experience. Sure my children like it there, but last time we went (2 weeks ago) a lot of things were broken. Half of the exhibits that were there were poorly working, if at all, and everything was old and uncared for. This place would be amazing if the more effort was given into it actually being taken care of, for the high price you pay for entrance. I get that kids are rough. In my opinion if we're going to be charged $20 for two to enter adult and child they can get quality toys or at least maintain the exhibits to proper working order. Children under 5 should be less than $9.50. There is a better discovery museum in Colorado, less cost, with more to discover and fun for the ENTIRE family.
