I have taken my grandchildren to this fun spot on many occasions. It is pretty creative and educational but really disguised as fun. If you will use it a bunch it is best to get a membership as it can be expensive for singular uses.

Both times our granddaughters came from out of state to visit, we came here. All day enjoyment for younger children. Kids over 10 would be better suited to the discovery in Charlotte. Water play for the very young, going to the airport, try out the firetruck, take a wander through a submarine, walk a pirate ship, be a mechanic and... More

My 5-year-old and 22-month-old equally enjoyed this facility. If your children enjoy water play there is an area specifically for this, young children can sit in the built-in high chairs at the water table. They will get wet, I would bring an extra shirt, maybe pants. They have aprons, but 2 and under will find a way to soak themselves.... More

Discovery Place Kids in Huntersville is a great place to take babies up til 8-9 years old....maybe even 10. Don't really know cause our 6 year old is out oldest. Anyways, from puppet shows to hands on exhibits, this place has it all. Very cool interactive children's museum that boasts it's own Fire Truck for kids to play with as... More

My 3 year old granddaughter loves Discovery Place Kids. The different play centers are wonderful. Kids can be a farmer, shopper, fireman, EMT, dancer, race car driver, etc. The centers are very realistic. There are things from the very young to older kids that would peak their interest. There is a huge craft room with all types of materials for... More

There are many different areas for children to play in, from crawlers to bigger kids. The membership is definitely the way to go if you are local. Afternoon hours seem to be less crowded, and since it isn't huge, the crowds make a big difference. I also wish they were open later than 5pm, but we still have plenty of... More

We recently went to the museum with 4 adults and 5 kids for a total cost of $80. We don't live in the area to buy a season pass so for visitors that can be a bit expensive for 3 hours of play. The kids had fun, there are a lot of activities and areas for the kids to explore.... More

A great place to take a small child to play and learn. There are small learning sessions presented during the day by staff that add to the fun. Our children were so excited that they ran from activity to activity and it is necessary for us to have one one one supervision or it is easy to lose track of... More

We took our 2 and a half year old grandson on a rainy summer day. The place was jam-packed with children, parents and grandparents. There was plenty of room, though, and everybody seemed to be having a good time. Our grandson loved the firetruck and the airplane in particular. I loved how the workings of a small town were right... More

I took my kids to Discovery Place Kids for the firs time after wanting to do it for a while and I'm glad we did. We got there right at 9am when they opened because it was during the summer and I knew this place would be a zoo by lunch time and I was RIGHT! By 10am the place... More
