“Fun Filled Day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013 via mobile

Lots to do for kids of all ages. Aquarium was super interesting as well as the rain forest. Always enjoy amazing IMAX movies. Very hands on and educational. Friendly, helpful staff. Cafe on site with healthy options although there are excellent restaurants in walking distance. Allow a day to see it all.

“Interesting for adults and kids.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Have been numerous times over the past years for special, limited-time exhibits as well as the ongoing fun and educational opportunities for learning, with or without young children. IMAX theater offerings are always a treat!

“Fun place for kids and adults”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

The kids had a great time as did the adults at discovery place! As parents we really loved the fact that it was not over priced. Admission was very reasonable. They have some great interactive exibits. My children loved the second floor where there was a bed of nails. There is plenty to do and discover. The animal on the first floor were fun to look at. They had staff talking about the animals and there was even a touch and feel a snake! The aquarium was beautiful.
