  • First off... You need the entire day, go early. There is so much to see and plenty of hands on activities on the top floor for kids. The slide is also very fun for all ages! ( Warning, it does go fast!) There is a also a nice play area at the bottom of the slide for little ones. This was nice as we could let our little one play while our oldest went down the slide. They are stroller friendly and the elevator makes it much nicer. They do not allow outside food and drink though. The cafe there has good food however the wait can get long during lunch time. The outside exhibits are very interesting as well. You could spent half the day outside going through everything.
  • Drove a couple hours with my 7 year old son and his friend to check this place out after many of our friends recommendations. It did not disappoint! We spent ALL day there and still weren't able to see everything so we will definitely be back. Every exhibit was well designed, the cafe on site had a great variety of choices and fair prices. The entire place was so clean that it's hard to believe they let kids in there :) We cannot wait to come back!
  • We drove over two hours to check out The Discovery Park of America but it was worth it! The exhibits we're very nice and the employees were very friendly and helpful. My seven year old especially enjoyed the 30 foot slide and the outdoor play ground. My father enjoyed the military displays and the outdoor railroad exhibit. There is truly something for everyone here. We will definitely go back for another day to see all of the things that we missed on our first visit!
  • Amazing place to go see! My 5 year old and my other older kids just loved this place. There's so much to see, we never get it all done in one day! And they are very affordable
  • This complex is a real gem. It is more than just a museum. Unlike most museums, around the county, Discovery Park encourages actually touching many of the exhibits. It's founder believed that to really understand history you need to be able to see and touch many objects. It is family friendly, and there is something for everyone. This is right up there with what you might find in a large city and West Tennessee is lucky to have such a wonderful attraction that showcases history and culture in this area.
