We go here at least twice a month, the kids love all the hands on stuff and the variety of activities is awesome! You can easily spend 3 or 4 hours here and not get bored. We have the annual family pass, well worth it!

My girls loved it here. They climb, build, explore and learn. Lots of different activities for lots of ages. My girls are 8 and 10. I think the age would top out at ten or eleven. Fun day for $12 per person.

We spent the afternoon here with three three year-olds and a 3 month-old baby. There were a variety of activities for all ages. The water activities seemed to be the kids' favorite. They enjoyed the climbing and the little town. However there were a lot of activities that were too advanced for them. That was discouraging since the entrance fee... More

We went back to the Discovery Museum with our two 13 year old granddaughters. We thought we might be there 1 hour. Instead we were pleasantly surprised and spent 3.5 hours exploring the museum. They have added several exhibits since our last visit including a Smart Board in the Art Center. Smart Boards are apparently in classrooms today but new... More

Fun place for all family members. So much to see and do that we didn't get through the whole thing in 1 day. We have a 4 and 6 year old and after 5 hours they started getting cranky so we had to call it quits. There is art, science, music, hands-on exhibits, plenty o play areas including water fun,... More

I go to many museums with my grandchildren & my hometown children's museum is the very best I've visited. It's entertaining and educational at the same time. They have fun special events every day throughout the museum that are geared to different age groups. My only complaint is keeping older children out of the toddler area. I understand this can...

It started with us getting lost as we went to the old museum. Called up the new site and they enthusiastically gave me directions and they were precise. It helped that there was a car garage connected to the museum and we drove in for free. Parking was ample since we got there first thing. This was a newer museum... More

They have moved and the GPS took us to the wrong place and scary side of town. Finally got here and didn't know that the parking garage was attached to the museum and was free to park in. $12 /person to enter. Small place, 3 stories high and had lots of things to do. Water play area, theater, climbing areas,... More

My husband, me, and our 3 & 5 year old girls really enjoyed our day. We stop in Vegas for a night to break up our trip from LA to Utah (visiting family) so we are not in Vegas to see the Strip or do most things at the large hotels. We spent about 5 hours here & the kids... More

This attraction is fun for the younger set. The activities are definitely geared toward younger children, and parents must stay with their children at all times or the attraction workers will track you down! It makes it difficult for the children to climb the play structure freely as an adult must follow behind. I could see this being a problem... More
