  • Super great place. I take son here twice a week for baby explorers and music makers. I like that they have a no unaccompanied adults rule because they're are some real creepers in state college.
  • Kids loved it! They have a number of hands on exhibits demonstrating various scientific principles from solar energy to electrical engineering. It appeals to multiple ages. We had a preschooler and an elementary student with us. Even the adults of the group were entertained. It's away from the Penn State campus, near the high school football stadium.
  • What a great space to have in town! Great place for kids to play.
  • This is an amazing place for kids to experience some of what makes the world tick.
  • We like Discovery Space for its friendly staff, regular updating of exhibits and toys, and safe atmosphere.
