Loved all the hands on activities and live demonstration. I saw a lot of adults enjoying themselves. All the exhibits were in working order. Good luck if you find free parking. Street parking is only an hour at a time. A school was there when we went so it was packed. The loudness and waiting behind kids were the biggest... More

Very fun time for the kids. I think even the adults learned something. They always changed up the projects on display so it is always something interesting to see.

Bottom line, if you have kids and are in the Little Rock area, stop here for at least a couple hours. We have a 5 and two 3 year olds and they all had a blast. The exhibits are just the right mix of educational and fun and just about all of it is hands on. My son loved laying... More

I first heard about the Museum of Discovery when I saw Kevin Delaney as a guest on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Kevin Delaney, Director of visitor experience at the Museum of Discovery (MOD), performs "awesome science" experiments on the Tonight Show and I thought it was rather fascinating. My wife and mother-in-law decide to check it out one... More

A really cool educational and informational place to take the youngsters. The first Monday of the month the admission charge is waived, but otherwise there is an admission fee. Everything is interactive and kids are encouraged to participate through touching, seeing, smelling, and hearing. A favorite of the kids is to see how electricity works. One child is asked to...

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.
