We come here often. It is really geared for toddlers up to about age 10. This place doesn't really offer much for kids older than that. My 3yr old absolutely loves this place. He always asks to go. He loves the retired fire truck downstairs and he plays with the large water feature. There is a slide at the top... More

Great for kids 10 and under! My grandchildren love to visit the Discovery center and it's a good place to have birthday parties that are more about learning and exercise and less about toys and food! Room for adults to maneuver around and learn a bit, as well! Good value, clean and fun afternoon for children'!

A couple of years ago I had to volunteer here for a class. I'm so glad I did! This place is so neat. They have a small concrete pond where kids are allowed to catch tad poles, they have fire trucks, an aquarium, etc. Definitely worth a day of your time to take your little ones to.

4yr old and 9yr old both had a blast! Great way to spend a few hours! My 9yr old got bored after the first hour or so but my 4 yr old could have stayed all day!
