great for the younger kids

I took my 1 and 3 year old grandchildren who were visiting me. There was plenty of activities for both. I would definitely recommend it.

This was our third visit to DPK. My kids always love certain areas the most. They love the grocery store, the restaurant, submarine and the vet's office. Everything here is so well done and so realistic. In the restaurant, for example, you can choose to serve food, cook food, be served food or cash out customers. I recommend this for... More

Great for a any child 10 an under. Everything is made to have a child use their imagination. They set up differnt scenes from a actual fire truck to a doctors office..grocery store..diner..garage...airport check in.. The younger ones from 6 an under will like the interactive water pool that has water constantly flowing thru a sand box like table. Bring... More

Nice place but our 9 year old was bored. This is a hands on kids place with a market, bank, pet doctor, etc. You get the drift. Older kids will be bored. Most exhibits have the stuff broke or missing. Good price to get in

Love taking my son here and he loves it. We bought a family pass and it is very worth it. After going three times it pays for itself. They offer a variety of activities and we love going here.

This is by far the best children's museum I have been to. We have been to several to include Wilmington, Myrtle Beach and Raleigh, and this was by far my favorite. I am not sure how old the facility is, but it looks brand new and very clean. We have been to Marbles in Raleigh several times, and while it... More

We're in Huntersville visiting from Georgia. We arrived early and spent the entire day here. We left and came back after eating lunch at Lupie's Cafe across the street. My 4 & 5 year old had an awesome time and have already asked to go again. There are shows through out the day including - story time, puppet show, dance... More

We have been here several times. My kids 5 and 8 are anxious to come back when in the area seeing family. It is a large, entertaining, fun place! And something a little different from the typical indoor playground or bounce place. Where the kids can pretend with water play, animals, firetruck, bank, climbing wall, boat, car, airplane, and so... More

Fun, educational, and lots of variety. There are activities for my son and daughter both, which is nice and it feels safe and controlled. Mine are 6 years old and they are starting to be on the older side for this Discovery Place facility though. Still a good time for families!

I grew up in Charlotte and visit my family often. I had read about this place but hadn't been until this weekend. My mom and I took my 3 year old daughter on Saturday morning and had SO much fun. It was about a 20 min. drive from Charlotte but easy to find and worth the extra time to get... More
