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

Came here with my 4yo, who had a great time. The water area was a big attraction, as well as the make-believe city. I enjoyed the multi-story tower, particularly being able to climb and do activities with him. Some of the activities could use some explanatory info; for example there's an area with lights and mirrors. The goal seems to... More

We visited the children's museum on a holiday. I was a little worries that it would be packed, but even with all the kids there was plenty of things for the kids to do and discover. There was such a great variety of things for every age and preference. My children loved the water room, my 7yr old son also... More

Spent a day with nieces at the museum and it kept them busy all day. The water feature seems to be the highlight but there are a number of other activities, all interactive as well as creative. The mini city was another favourite, including the ability to not only spend money, but also earn a pay cheque as well as... More

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
