We've been to quite a few children's museums, this museum is by far the most involved, the technology is amazing, and everything is hands on. The Lego area was by far the favorite. The cost was a tad pricey especially since general admission doesn't automatically...More

If you haven't been to Bubblefest, you must. It's worth every single penny of the admission price. The other things, are basically your average childrens museum. The outdoor dinosaur discovery area, had little wand things that for the most part did not work.

Fantastic hands on for our 8 year old grandson. There were no dislikes. He kept finding more to do and loved the LEGO exhibit.

Love this place. I have two kids and we seem to go to the Cube every two weeks. It's an inexpensive attraction with great staying power. They always have new things to keep the kids happy. My family has a year membership. Money well spent!

My family and I had so much fun at Discovery Cube. This center provided lots of hands on games and interactions. We especially liked the shopping Eco- friendly supermarket. Discovery Cube is small, but still a lot of fun.
