The Discovery Center is fun for children and adults both. Exhibits change regularly and there is always something for everyone there.

We love coming to the Discovery Center for all of the great hands on exhibits. Everything is very informational and fun. They have great adult activities too, like Beerology, that are a blast.

This is a good place to take the kids. Very interactive for them. All of our kids liked it, and they are teenagers.

The new Legos exhibit is wonderful. My son had a blast going through the castles and learning about some amazing builders.

Went here on vacation with our 2 1/2 year old toddler. There is an area just for six year olds and under to run around and play in. He had a blast! My only MAJOR complaint is when we first arrived there was a small army of 10+ year olds ruling the roost that we had to chase out before... More
