Stopped in on a summer Saturday and just about had the place to ourselves. Just one other family there. They have a great diversity of exhibits. We found the Titanic exhibit fascinating. My 11 year old son loved the Cessna and the Mack truck engine. Upstairs, the Civil War and train exhibits were all interesting. But don't miss the Visions... More

Discovery? More like scared straight propaganda. If you are trying to push the "Madness" era of propagandaisms down young people's throats, then this is the trip for you and your kids. I suppose the place is funded by the DEA? If not, it should be. The only thing they didn't offer was a free ticket to watch the so-called "educational"... More

My daughter loved this when she was younger, but I hadn't been in several years, until a friend recently visited with her toddler. Most of the exhibits were over her head, but she had a great time in the toddler area & in the farm/grocery store area upstairs. I'd say it's probably best for ages 5-10, maybe? I personally really... More

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
