I was wrong. It is much smaller than the museums in larger cities, but they really utilize all of... More

She tried out everything! She especially loved the grocery store and I enjoyed playing that with her! I highly recommend it to families... More

Another place I've been going to since I was a little kid. If you're under 12 years old, this place is awesome! There is so much fun stuff to do! Its like the ultimate imagination station, you can pretend to be an EMT in a replica ambulance, a firefighter in a firetruck, a postman, even a checker in a huge... More

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.

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.
