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.

4 levels and SO much to do there.Very different from the other Discovery Centers we have been to. Travelling with young kids, we're always on the lookout for playgrounds and children interactive sites. Kids had so much fun we went 2 days in a row!

My children are 5, 3 and 6 months. We got a membership for Christmas. Good thing too, we definitely couldn't do it all in one day. Everything you want in a children's museum. Costumes, crafts, slides, science. . . plus with our membership we get discounts to other children museums in the country.

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,...
