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

We live just north of DC and were looking for a good indoor activity on a cold day with our 3 kids (7,5 and 3 years old). Discovery Station was well worth the trip. It really has something for everyone - great history for the adults, and lots of fun for the kids. The dinosaur paleontology sand table was a... More

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!
