I was worried that my one year old & three year old wouldn't enjoy it. I was very wrong! The little kid section was great & the loved it. We explored the rest of the building after & they found stuff to enjoy in the older sections too. Overall, it was a surprisingly wonderful time....Us adults enjoyed it too!

Went for a first grade field trip. They all loved this place. The attractions kept all involved and occupied.

Wow! We certainly need many more places like this. Educational fun! We went to check it out before our grand kids visit and NOT disappointed. There is something for every age group- even us old codgers were laughing and playing with the exhibits. Bravo to all involved!

This is our second time here. Both times were with a school field trip. Can't comment on price because we paid a certain amount so I have no idea if it is good or not.. There are a lot of things to do, and many neat "science" stations that make learning fun. Kids enjoy it, my daughter keep telling me,... More

We love this place! We are currently staying downtown in a hotel while our hardwood floors are being replaced. We bought a year long pass and have taken the kids here several times in the last couple of weeks. Our children are 1.5 and 3.5 years old and they love going. A lot of the activities are a bit too...

I really enjoyed the displays of the human body and my grandchildren enjoyed the dinasuars. My favorite part was the weather room and entering tornado alley. It replicated the tornado of 1999 in the Quawpa section of Little Rock.

This museum is all hands on and has things to do for all ages! Normally, the adults lose interest at a children's museum but not at the museum of Discovery! We spent over 3 hours here and kids and adults played constantly. The mindbenders area was great for the adults, while all the other areas (motion and scarves) was fun... More

Took my sons here ages 5 and 7 on a Saturday…nice crowd but wasn't crowded. Good selection of things for the kids but to me its heard towards smaller kids so I am glad I went ahead and went. I wouldn't go back tho. Even my sons were saying they liked other science museums we've gone to better such as... More
