We took our nearly 3 year old grand daughter to the museum. She was initially overwhelmed by everything there was to do. The museum was very busy that day too. Once she got used to the activity level she enjoyed herself. I think the next time she will love it. The kids that were a little older were having a... More

Lots of fun for children under 8 but leaves the older kids with little to do. We were there twice in June and the same book was read each time. Seems to me 2 different books could be read a day. Other than that it was fun time for all.

My grandchildren loved the interactive environment and the offerings of classes that are regularly offered. My 11 year old was not as excited as the 4 and 7 year old as the interactive items were more for younger children.

We enjoyed an afternoon at the Museum with our kids and our friends' family. We were able to keep the kids engaged for about two hours.

The place is a wonderful place for youngsters to get hands on experiences. They can learn a lot from the demonstrations.

We have been to several children museums across the country and San Diego has one of the better ones. We've been here a few times and its always clean and things are working.

The museum does have quite a few "stations" but is overall pretty small. We went with our 4 and 6 year old boys. They were able to do all of the activities at the museum within a couple of hours. There were only a couple of activities that held the interest of my 6 year old. They have a nice... More

We visited the first time an instantly became members. The museum seems to always make the little ones run, interact, climb and be entertained. the changing exhibits always keep it fresh (although don't like the down time between changes as the museum closes). Great place to take the little kids.

It didn't have a lot of reviews when we decided to give the discovery museum a try. I am glad we did. It does have a lot of toys and play areas, which is good for 2yr olds like mine. What the other reviews don't highlight is all the learning activities they have mixed in with the toys. There is... More

It is not a museum ... It is very small .. Has no special games or activities at all.. If I knew it was that bad, I would have gone to a park instead ...
