After no more than 10 minutes inside the museum my wife and I were just as engaged with all the hands-on activities as our kids (7, 5, & 18mo). From art to music to agriculture, there is SOMETHING that will interest and entertain kids of all ages. I will say that after about 5 minutes inside, I was desperately trying... More

Took my daughter when she was age 6-8ish and stayed for hours! She had a ball. A friend invited us to share complimentary tickets and my daughter is 15 along with others in group. They spent about 1.5 hours exploring a little, probably due to raining outside. Just not as fun for that age group, but great for the younger... More

The Creative Discovery Museum is a fantastic hands on museum for children to explore everything science. My 7 and 3 year olds were especially fond of the music areas. The main complaint my husband and I both had was that we wished the rooms flowed a little better. At times our three year old seemed quite overwhelmed with all the... More

Really great museum. We spent the whole day there. My kids are 5, 5 and 4 and it was a fun, interactive, educational experience. Really well done exhibits.

We went on a Friday afternoon and spent about 2 1/2 hours there. We could have spent more time there was plenty to do. It was clean and well-kept and there was plenty of staff around. There is a coupon online for one dollar off each ticket.

I took my youngest daughter here recently and she loved it. There are a nice amount of things to do and the price is not expensive at all. She wanted to spend most of her time in the large play area in the first room but that was to be expected. Overall nice place. We will go again in the... More

We figured our young children would love the Creative Discovery Museum, and boy were we right! I was chasing 3 children through seas of hundreds of other screaming children! It was a hoot. Lol. There were lots of things for the kids to do, it was safe, and we spent 4 hours and didn't even get to everything. If you... More

This was our first stop, and our kiddos loved it! The kids just ran around and had fun! They loved the sand box, water activities, and rooftop play area.

We spent 2 hours here before heading back to Atlanta, but wished we had planned more time. We didn't even get to all of the areas! My husband and I had so much fun, and both our sons (8 and almost 2) did as well! This was so much cooler than the children's museum in Atlanta!!!

We visited the museum on a day they were closing early so the admission was only $8. Even though there were 78,644,491 kids running wild in there, that wasn't the worst part. The "Nickelodeon" piano didn't work, along with SEVERAL other things as different exhibits. Actually, I believe if parents controlled their kids better, things wouldn't get broken...but that's another... More

We are sorry that your visit was unsatisfactory and appreciate your feedback. The spring is a busy time of year for the Museum due to spring break season. We often have large numbers of guests in attendance each day. As a result of this, exhibits can get damaged or malfunction. The Museum has full time exhibit maintenance staff on duty... More
