i love museums that have hands on sessions and real open art science make and takes all the time. They had plenty of staff but seemed to be just standing there. Museums should have floor carts with interactive a on the hour, make and takes, not just coloring sheets and rubbing plates. For $12.50 per person I was not impressed.

We were in Vegas for 3 days staying at the casino free Hilton Grand Vacations. We love to do fun activities with the boys which stimulate their interests and enables them to think critically about the world around them. Discovery Children's Museum makes learning, exploration and research exciting for children. The activities here foster imagination while simultaneously educating children about... More

We spent hours there. Visited with my 2 year old and husband. The toddler room is great. My son painted a picture and completed a couple puzzles. There is also a nursing nook which is great for nursing moms. We visited the dinosaur exhibit, the grocery store. We made a puzzle which was a cute idea however the puzzle had... More

This is a brand new children's museum. Three floors of fun. Clean, bright, engaging I had to pull the kids out. Very friendly staff and everything was very clean

Overall it is a pretty fun way to spend an afternoon. My daughter is 2 1/2 and she loved it. I like that there are different levels so not everyone is in one space, although it still feels cramped. The biggest con is this price. I think it is absolutely ridiculous that I am paying the same entry price for... More

I took my 3 years old grandson and he had a great time at the museum, I don't know what he enjoyed the most, he was excited with every thing. Plan to stay there for a couple of hours.

The first place my grandson and went when arriving in Las Vegas was the Discovery Museum. Great choice with so much fun stuff to do it was hard to leave. It is definitely a two day museum.

I wish they had this museum in LA so I can get an annual membership and visit weekly. It blows away Discovery Cube in LA and Science center in types of hands on activity they have. Granted Science Center have more things to see and it's free. This was part of Family Fun Vegas trip away from the strip. My... More

I took my granddaughters here for a day out. As soon as we walked it there was something to see and do. It's 3 stories high and lots of things to discover. We spent 4 hours there and the kids did not want to leave, they loved it so much. It's a must! I think I paid around 15 per... More

This is one of the coolest hands-on museums for kids we have ever experienced. It is three stories of learning and fun. Our family loved The Summit which extends from the first floor through the roof and has interesting activities in science involving flight, air pressure, electricity, light, magnetism, space science, sound and more. Use a lever to lift a... More
