I would give this place 5 stars otherwise. We took our 3 kids here and had a blast until several buses of kids pulled up from a summer camp. It was chaotic, no chaperones and the camp kids were rude and pushing our kids out of the way. I'm sure the museum made a tidy profit that day but we'll... More

In town for a weekend visit with my husband and sister. All of us adults. We were down by the waterfront at the Saturday market and we stumbled upon this museum. We had a fantastic time interacting and learning at this museum. There really is something for everyone. It's very much worth the visit. We particularly all enjoyed the origami... More

My husband and I took our three kids (5,9,11) here with my grandmother and we all had a blast. It was funny because everyone of us had our favorite exhibits but we all enjoyed the handkerchief machine the best. Nice memories that will last forever.

With grandchildren aged 8 and 11, the museum was wonderful. Lots of thought provoking hands on exhibits. We particularly enjoyed a device that allowed you the compete by moving a ball with brain waves. It also had a tornado exhibit where you experienced what the big tornado of 1999 was like.

I took my 12 year old mentee here and she had a wonderful time! We recorded a news broadcast, went through this super fun speed exhibit, learned about the body and much more. She got to climb on stuff, learn about tornadoes and there's this machine that lets you lay on a bed of nails that makes for a great... More

From the inner workings of the human body to the amazing exhibits featuring energy, physics, motion, and even a touchable "tornado", this was a great way to spend an afternoon. There could be more activities for the preschool age, but with a patient adult, most the activities can be enjoyed by even the very young. We, the adults, had a... More

The museum recently underwent a renovation that provided much more activities for younger children. It is still geared toward older kids 8 & up I would say but does have things for 4-8 y/o age group and now does have a play area for the young kids 3 and under that can at least occupy them while the older kids...

My fiancé and I went together and it was amazing. It is aimed toward kids (we are in college) but being a science major, I love hands on activities. If you do not have kids I would suggest to go at a time when kids are busy because I went Saturday afternoon and it was jam-packed with children. I want... More

It was storming and chilly so my boys (16, 13 and 10) decided to check out the Discovery Museum with some other family members. I fully expected the 10 year old to love it, the 13 year old to tolerate it and the 16 year old to hate it. Although some parts are geared toward younger children - we all... More

Great museum that offers many hands-on activities for kids of all ages. There is an area upstairs just for kids 5 and younger. Down stairs there is a tinkering studio where kids get to take apart and build lots of fun crafts and there are lots of cool animals to check out. Overall it's a great museum in the heart... More
