We were looking for something indoors to do with the kids (1.5 and 4.5) and had run out of local options. I stumbled across Discovery Station on trip advisor and it looked like it was worth checking out. It totally was! We went on a Saturday and it was not very crowded, but we weren't the only ones there either.... More

Great place. Great fun for all. Parking is tricky due to one way streets but persevere and you can find a place behind the entrance. Staff are very nice. Price is very reasonable. 2 floors of things to do; takes a good 2 hours to see everything. Overall a great experience.

The Target Maryland Exhibit was informative and interesting, and Susan Fox went out of her way to tailor her presentation to the different ages of our Girl Scouts. The girls and the Troop Leaders were all very impressed with Susan's knowledge, and her ability to make such a serious topic educational and fun. Also, Susan rearranged her schedule at the... More

We live locally but had never visited the Discovery Station until we had out-of-town guests from Maine. We liked the Japanese and Titanic exhibits especially because there was a lot of new information. We are going back soon.

No matter your age or interests, you will always learn something new and find things to enjoy. There's an exhibit for anything and everything, from baseball, to Japanese culture, to space and aircraft, to the mighty Titanic or the dinosaurs from our legends. You could spend every day here, and still find something new each time!

Susan Fox is an exceptional tour guide and a wealth of knowledge on all aspects of the drug culture. Great experience for my Great grand daughter Hayley who was with me. She wants to do her community service hours here as a tour guide.

We wanted a fun experience for our 7 year old daughter's surprise birthday party. Our girls always love going to the Discovery Station as it is fun and educational. Brittany and her team are so easy to work with, and they made it a truly incredible experience! The party room was the perfect size for the nearly 30 people that... More

Please do your family a favor and take the free tour with DEA educator Susan Fox through this exhibit. We took our Cub Scout den of 10 year old boys through and she did an amazing job of keeping them interested. The information was given to them at a level they comprehended and her presentation was informative to both the... More

I have taken my son to Discovery Station on several occasions while visiting my family in the area. Every time we find something new that he really loves and wants to learn more about. Many exhibits showcase the scientific and industrial history of Hagerstown including Moller Pipe Organ Company, Mack Truck, Fairchild Aircraft, and the Western Maryland Railroad. Other exhibits...

Grandpa, the "cool" 12-year-olds, the nerdy 9-year-old, and the toddler all found things to hold their interest at this feel-good place. The staff are near and helpful, but not invasive. Some local history, too, that will be interesting to adults.
