We had a great time here! The Titanic exhibit is just amazing! Especially the working model of the boat - it really helps bring home how everything happened. We ran out of time after just viewing the first floor but we will definitely go back!

We went here for something to do while camping. It was a great place for kids up to the age of 9-10. Any age after that might get bored after 20 minutes. It had very good displays and told a story about each one.

this is the typical Hagerstown attraction. Great concept, poor execution. Filthy carpet, run down exhibits, moldy/mildewy smell. Completely overpriced. Do not recommend.

Great for kids but dinosaur exhibition could be bigger. Nice local baseball history & titanic exhibition. Seeing that a Tuskegee airman was from the area was cool

Upon finding this place on TA, I knew there would be a learning experience but I didn't anticipate the account of fun I had! M my seven year old-of course- loved it. My husband and I did too! Everything from flying the plane, playing in the space area, learning about the Titanic and Mack trucks (hubby is a truck driver),... More

We love the Discovery Station and my son asked to have his birthday party there. Out of all the parties we have been to or hosted, this was by far the best. First, Brittany was incredible to work with prior to and at the party. Second, the kids loved the environment and interacting with the people working there which made... More

My children loved the Discovery Station. They always ask to go! They make improvements and provide enough activities so we can! Free military passes are also really appreciated. Thank you Discovery Station!

Our group of kids (ages 1, 3, 4 and 7) plus parents and grandparents visited St. Patrick's Day weekend. To our surprise, entrance was free because of the holiday! We did make a donation, as we spent an enjoyable two hours here. The kids were delighted with the toys and puppet theater on the first floor, and loved sitting in... More

I was staying with friends in the area and we were looking for something to do on a Saturday afternoon. From the website, it sounded like it had a little bit of everything. What I was immediately struck by was how enthusiastic and helpful the staff was. We were there for an hour viewing the exhibits and could have stayed... More
