Lots of fun! Different things each month. Very kid oriented, this can be a negative because sometimes boring for adults.

Went here with our 15-yr old, 10-yr old, and my parents and we all had a great time. It's not real big, but it has a lot of very interesting and unique hands on exhibits that are fun for all. Was pretty impressed at the quality and level of the displays here. This is definitely a great place to see... More

The Discovery Center definitely has things for the little ones to occupy themselves and because they host new exhibits, there is always another reason to visit. Our fist visit was when an interactive Dino exhibit was on and we've been Members ever since. The membership is for a year and begins the date you signed up. Look up their web... More

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.

We went to this on a fluke to escape the heat. It was incredible! Between the planetarium shows every hour, the hands on activities, and the workers with all the different creatures - it was a huge success. Highly recommended for kids of all ages. (there is even a spot for littles to play)

My kids and I had a blast. Everything is educational and hands on. They love playing with the Legos. It's the perfect place for kids who wanna touch.

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

My kids (age 2 and 5) love the Discovery Center! They have rotating exhibits, so it seems like there is always something new to explore. They have areas for toddlers, preschoolers, and big kids. There are even some evening events for adults. If you want to avoid busloads full of kids on field trips, go at about 2 in the... More
