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

What a great little museum! My wife and I spent several hours there, enjoying it immensely and thinking how much fun our grandchildren would have had there. The highlight for us was Mindbender Mansion, a series of puzzles and other mind challenges. Highly recommended!

Spent 4.5 hours there today, definitely time well spent. Both of my children had a good time learning and playing. The bed of nails was their favorite thing. Plenty to do for toddlers and my second grader was busy the whole time too. Exhibits are clean and maintained. I have went to several childrens museums and this was one of... More

Congrats to all of you that made this place expand and renew itself into a marquee place to visit. There is something for everyone and I encourage those that like it, support it at annual fundraisers. This is a gem for residents and visitors alike

I've been going here since I was a kid, and it never fails to take me somewhere awesome. They have random great exhibits, and no matter how many times you go, it stays fun. It's close to other downtown sights and restaurants.

Spent the day at the River Market and first stop was museum of discovery. Great price on admission when compared to all they have for you to do. Definitely recommend a stop in.

This place has it all we went for a birthday party and had a blast. There is so much to do that you can easily spend hours exploring and enjoying yourself. It has a many things to do for young and old there are separate areas for the very young ones.

We expected this museum to be a smaller-scale version of a big-city children's museum. We took two 3-year-olds and were thrilled to discover that, in fact, it was better than a lot of the museums we have visited. Typically in these types of museums, the majority of the displays are broken - because of all of the wear and tear.... More
