“Hidden Gem! Well Worth a Visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

The Discovery Center is run by a wonderful husband and wife team (Tommy and Carolyn Walden) who were super gracious during our visit. The center is a museum that is set up to show the creative works of God. There are particular focuses on Noah's Ark and the flood, as well as a very interesting exhibit on the Titanic. Our three girls loved it. We pretty much had the place to ourselves for about three hours. The museum has a couple of live animal exhibits and is set up well to draw in kids and adults of all ages. The center doesn't charge for visits, but donations are welcome. This was our first time to visit, and we certainly will return whenever we are in Abilene again. Excellent!
