ok..don't go if you have kids 8 or above. They will get bored fast and waste your money. The exhibits are more geared to younger children. Cons 1...Food We have been to a lot of children museums and with the exception of a few, all of them have pathetic dining area and what food are there are barely eatable. Yes,... More

My 4 year old grandson visits once a year from NY. The first place he wants to is this museum. His favorite activity is playing on the pirate ship. It enables him to use his imagination and be very creative.

We visit Las Vegas 3 times a year and always stop by the Discovery Children's Museum. My 5 year old son loves it there and has a blast every time. A variety of things to do there from climbing, playing with hands on things, to crafts. We're there for at least 4 to 6 hours every time. The staff is... More

Our children enjoyed this museum so much! Well worth the price. Even though some of the educational displays were for older children, our 4 year old had a great time.

Went with family. There was a short wait time, but it was worth it. Kids loved it! A lot to see and many different interests for all children! Nice family attractions in Vegas! Will return again when in town visiting family!

Located at The Smith Center near downtown Las Vegas the museum has multi level interactive activities for children. My daughter-in-law & I took my 13 month old grandson for a visit. If he wasn't walking since 9 months of age, he certainly would have been way too young to enjoy any of the activities. We were there for about an... More

I went with a 9 month old, 3 and 5r year old. It was definitely more suited for the 3 and 5 year old . . and older. . . But it does have one specific area for smaller kids. It was great, 3 stories and in the middle is a huge play thing that goes through each floor. Only... More

Located right next to the Smith Center, this is one of the better children's discovery museums nationwide. Not only does it have a large multi-level climbing area in the center for physical activity (with hands on educational activities dispersed on each level) it has a great water play/experiment area with raincoats provided. Kids of all ages will love the hurricane... More

I brought my kids here, all 6. It was a little too juvenile for my older kids but great for 9 and under. The kids loved the areas to create and build things and the water area.
