We read the tripadvisor reviews prior to going... some were good, some were bad. We should have paid more attention to the bad. They hooked us in with the dinosaur exhibit, but sadly, it is just a few dinosaurs with a series of games around them. The rest of the place felt old, tired, and just not too much fun. Most of it is self discovery. People have commented on the bubble room. We were agree, this is probably the best part. We watched the fire show, and unfortunately, it was not great - many people left during the show. Not a place to really spend more than an hour or two. We hear that they might be moving in the future. Hopefully some improvements will come.

Thanks for your feedback. The Discovery Centre is indeed a self-guided exploratory tour, and we think you can get out of it as much you put in - in other words the more interaction you have with the exhibits, displays, programs, etc., the more engaging and educational they are. Certainly there are some older pieces here, but there are also many new and upgraded pieces like the Running Track and the Lindsay Building Centre for Lego building that we hope our visitors take time to explore. We hope your next visit is more rewarding, either here or at the new Centre, which we hope will be open in late 2014.
