  • Discovery Gateway is a wonderful children's museum. The exhibits change from time to time and they have many interactive games, and activities. The price is a little expensive, but if you visit frequently the memberships are well worth the price. The museum is better for younger children as well as much of it is targeted towards children under ten I would say.
  • Awesome place for children to have fun and learn at the same time. Very comfortable and clean place. Costumes for mechanics, firefighters, and other professions are available. Real life helicopter was onsite! It was awesome. Highly recommended for those with children.
  • I attended the Children's Festival on June 10th with my friend's 5-year-old. It was so much fun to rediscover the same exhibits my now teenagers enjoyed at that age. After visiting the new live beehive exhibit, my little friend said he wanted to plant more flowers at home to help the bees survive! This is such a great place to engage and to be present with a child.
  • Decent place. Employees aren't capable of dealing well with children though... my 5 year old daughter accidentally walled into the mother goose/ toddler area and a female employee snapped at her "are you a baby or a big kid!? A baby or a big kid!? You need to come out of there!" It was scary to my daughter and frankly uncalled for. I was right there ready to handle the situation. Screen your employees better and you'll get better ratings. Very disappointed.
  • We have an annual pass here and love it. We have a lot of fun with the various exhibits they have here. Our kids enjoy the puzzles, games and other activities they can play while they are here. The grocery store, house and water play are their favorites! It's a little pricey if you don't have a pass, but they offer a lot of free days throughout the year.
