Our kids had a lot of fun inside and also in the Garden of Stories. They enjoyed the ambulance, getting groceries and the dentist area.

The kids had a good time at the Discovery Center. Lots of activities for the little ones. Not recommended for older kids. Stayed about four hours.

Wonderful fun for young children and their parents also. Had a great time interacting with my children on all the interesting areas. We all had so much fun and there's something for everyone to be interested in.

This facility is a treasure in our community -- we're lucky to have it, Allows kids to get hands on in a way that some other museums do not.

So many themed rooms to explore. Loved the climbing ramps. Great staff. Fun New Year's Eve crafts and activities. No wifi

This is one of the best children's "museums" in the country. Very much "hands on". Kids especially 4 to 8 seem to have the most fun, and watching them use what's there to play at being something extraordinary is a lot of fun

Great place to spend some time with young children, you can go for as little as an hour and have a great time! Plan on spending at least a couple hours. They have great classes and camps for the kids as well. Super, creative fun space. Well worth it. Beautiful outside gardens now too.

Fun and educational for kids of all ages, and even adults. The variety and quality of interactive and engrossing activities they have packed into this place is truly impressive. Our 3 year old daughter had a blast, and even after she was obviously beyond exhausted, she still didn't want to leave. Other reviews, and their website can give specific information... More

I took my 21 month old and a friend of mine brought her 17 month old. The two boys had fun checking out the fire truck, the boat at the campsite, the train table and so much more. The staff was helpful and pleasant. We will be back next summer - if not sooner!

It is a great childrens museum but I would recommend calling ahead and asking when the quietest hours are for taking a toddler. The older kids race through here and tend to knock the toddlers over. The price is reasonable.
