The first place my grandson and went when arriving in Las Vegas was the Discovery Museum. Great choice with so much fun stuff to do it was hard to leave. It is definitely a two day museum.

I wish they had this museum in LA so I can get an annual membership and visit weekly. It blows away Discovery Cube in LA and Science center in types of hands on activity they have. Granted Science Center have more things to see and it's free. This was part of Family Fun Vegas trip away from the strip. My... More

I took my granddaughters here for a day out. As soon as we walked it there was something to see and do. It's 3 stories high and lots of things to discover. We spent 4 hours there and the kids did not want to leave, they loved it so much. It's a must! I think I paid around 15 per... More

This is one of the coolest hands-on museums for kids we have ever experienced. It is three stories of learning and fun. Our family loved The Summit which extends from the first floor through the roof and has interesting activities in science involving flight, air pressure, electricity, light, magnetism, space science, sound and more. Use a lever to lift a... More

We took our granddaughter here for the day. I think my husband and son-in-law had more fun playing with the mechanics that she did. There is a castle and pirate ship, complete with costumes, that the kids can play in and climb on. Three floors of wonderful things for kids from babies to teens.

Great place to take the family. Lots of hands-on fun. Love the in & out privileges and covered parking too. My 4 year old had a blast and we will be back.

My 2 & 3 year old had an amazing experience here! They did almost all the activities from the 1st to the 3rd floor. We are just visiting here and went to another museum prior to this one, but i think for travelers who think about visiting the Discovery Children's Museum should consider making it the only stop for the...

This is a new facility, executed very dramatically with great potential. The downside to the great exhibits and hands on experience is the lack of follow through regarding the education of the physical laws, science behind the activities. Expensive

We took our 2 and 4 year olds and they loved it! Three floors of fun activities. You could spend a whole day here! On the first floor they have a big climbing structure, a nice play area for toddlers, a dramatic play area with a stage/costumes/castle/pirate ship and a water play area (which we saved for last!). The second... More
