  • The discovery Gateway is a fun place to take children with three floors and lots of toys and classes. But it has its downside it is $16.00 per person that enters. If you don't mind pays by that much i...  more »

  • I just had my sons Birthday party here yesterday and it was such a good experience. All the kids as well as adults had a blast, they are so hands on with everything from the second you get there till you leave. I loved that I actually had time to sit and relax at that party instead of running around serving food, cutting cake etc, they handle all of this for you! The birthday host did an amazing job and Amy the planner is great to work with and follows up often before the party to make sure everything will run as scheduled. I cant say enough good things about Discovery gateway, this was our first time ever there and I was definitely pleased and will be returning. Thank you discovery gateway for helping me throw my son the best birthday!
  • This children's museum rivals those of much larger cities in the U.S. The exhibits are all hands-on and interactive and, with the exception of the small children play-area, are updated frequently. Everything is extremely clean, and hand sanitizer stations are placed conveniently throughout the museum. The staff seem to love their jobs and possess an unlimited degree of patience. Pretty sure you have to have an actual child in tow to experience this SLC gem, though they did allow my sister and me in to wander since I had a membership. Highly recommended to wear your little ones out with minimal effort on your part.
  • 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.
  • Lots of interactive exhibits and puzzles. A great place for kids to learn and have fun. So many things to play with!
