  • 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.
  • Small but lots of great things to experiment with!
  • although small, theres lots of hands on exhibits here that my kids and I enjoyed. it also has free reciprocal admission for those with memberships to another ASTC science museum.
  • Discovery Space is a great place for summer camps, birthday parties, and fun for kids. The employees are extremely nice and very knowledgeable! I highly recommend taking your kids there for what will sure be a memorable experience.
  • Cool place to visit. There are many fun science learning activities available. All children will have a great time here.
