This museum has three floors of entertainment and education waiting for kids of all ages. There's a (safe) climbing cage that extends up to the full height of the building. There are educational areas for toddlers all the way to teens. Just one example: you can build a structure out of wooden pieces on a special table that simulates an... More

The museum is not that great when compared to other children's museums . It's definitely a place to kill the time or to relax while the kids are burning of their energy. One cool feature of this museum is the theatre for young kids. They have lights and sounds that make the on stage experience beautiful for the child. The... More

I will only say that I wish I had more time on my hands because that place was seriously amazing! You have to visit for yourself. Cheap entry for what they're offering and the kids will be well worked out by the time it's over. My younger brother got to really exercise his knowledge in a fun and comfortable environment,...

My wife and I were in Las Vegas for a family wedding. We traveled with my five-year-old and three-year-old. We were a little unsure as to whether not we should go because it seemed to be for slightly older children. When we got there my three-year-old had the most fun. Even though they didn't understand all the exhibits they were... More

This is one of the best Kids Discovery Centers we have seen! I took my 10 year old and 4 year old here and had to drag them out after more than 4hours! This is a 3 story facility with multi-level interactive areas! My 4 year old loved the water section which is right on the lowest level when you... More

This is a great children's museum and play area in the northern area of Las Vegas. It has every type of attraction for young children you can think of. A water play area, a room for toddler's to climb around and read books. Another room that has the themes of several children's books and interactive activities related to the books.... More

Lots of things for little ones, ages 3-10 to do and discover. Things to climb, experience the real world from their perspective, i.e. grocery shop and become the cashier, fly airplanes as a captain, water play, construction .....I could go on and on.

This museum is a diamond in the rough. Our 7-year old had a ball. This is a interactive museum. You get to do arts and crafts, test your nutrition IQ, climb on ropes, play in water, theater groups, and let your imagination run wild. I would say 13 and under would have fun here. It's open until 4, so it's... More

We brought our 4YO, he mostly enjoyed going up and down the multi-story tower. There was a lot to do which can also be a little confusing and overwhelming for the kids and adults. Not sure if there was a map or layout of the building anywhere but it would be helpful. I'd suggest asking when you enter the building.... More

The grandkids really liked this place, for about 30 minutes each. They were 2 & 6 years old respectively. The entry fee is extremely high and it is for everyone, kids get no discount. They liked getting wet and playing on the pirate ship. There are some interesting concepts for kids of all ages, but not very many that suit... More
