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

It's a great place. My 4 yr old loved it. Plenty to do and see. Water area was really fun. My daughter enjoyed it a lot. The day we went. There was 3 school trips which made chaotic. But that's to be expected. Would certainly recommend.

Brought my 2.5 year and 9 month old. Not that geared to the 9 month old though there was a small enclosed crawling area for him that he was able to play around in for a while. My 2.5 year loved it on the other hand. Although a lot of the activities were for slightly older kids the things she... More

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
