The moms took the kids to this museum while the other grown-ups did a little gambling downtown. What a fantastic find. The entrance fee was affordable and more than worth it. There were things for children of all ages to do- from a great play area for toddlers to free science discovery and "build your own to take home" science... More

We took my nieces here for their birthday. The front desk gave them a fun pin to wear for their special day and the activities were great. The kids really have the run of the place, giving you time to watch and enjoy. The climbing tree thing is awesome!

A very hands on museum that our grandchildren aged 11, 7, 6 & 4 loved. The staff was very attentive and we all had a good time.

Visited the discovery museum today while visiting my daughter and grandson. I have to say that this is a wonderful pace to take the family. So many different activities for the kids and puzzles that will keep most adults frustrated for hours. The fact that my grandson was continuously occupied for 4 hours speaks volumes about the number of interactive... More

The museum was built for kids, to make them think and stimulate their young minds and lives up to their mission! Many interactive exhibits and experiments to preform. Hours of fun to be had!

While visiting Reno, take the kids to this museum. It is both fun for them and very educational. There are many areas for kids young and older to explore and learn. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There are even items to see and things to do that will hold the interest of parents or grandparents. The kids especially... More

This is a newer kids museum, and its nice, clean and fun for kids of all ages. I started bringing mine here when they just opened, around 3 years old, and now they are 6. It has something new everytime we go.

Took our great-nephew there. He didn't want to leave! So many amazing things to do for kids. A great way to keep little ones occupied and tire them out! Wyatt's favorite thing was making slime and the cloud climbing!

This is a kids museum for certain. If you're an adult not accompanying a child, chances are you will find the 15minutes you spend there delightful but not worthy of any more of your time.
