Great hands on museum, plenty to do for several hours. Kids and 1-13 would have a lot to do here for hours on end.

Buy the Family pass...Soooo worth it..Pass good for a year...They also have. grandparents pass...Nice to have somewhere fun to go to and not have to pay every time... I would buy a Family pass for my kids for Christmas do they could take their kids, something they could use instead of a toy that my grandkids would play with for 5 minutes... GREAT ANY REASON GIFT for ANY FAMILY...

Laurie, thank you so much for your 5-star rating and kind words. The family and grandparent memberships truly are a great deal if you plan to visit even 2-3 times a year! You are absolutely right about buying something like a museum membership that can be used every day for a year versus a toy that children often become bored of or break quickly! We hope to see you and your family back again soon.

The grandkids and I really enjoyed our time here. There was plenty to do and somehow even the adults didn't get bored at this kid-friendly place!

Thank you for the 5-star rating and review. We're so glad you and your grandchildren enjoyed your time with us. We hope you visit again soon. You may want to consider a grandparent membership for just $90 you and all your grandchildren ages 17 and younger can come every day for a year if you wish! You'd also get discounts in our gift shop, and for classes and birthday parties. Thanks again.

Stopped by with our family on the way to Orlando. We had been here once before many years ago. It had improved and was so fun for everyone in or group from our infant to the grandparents. Some of our favorites were the bubble area, the tornado tube, farm area, and the list could go on. We had to limit ourselves to two hours but could of easily spent more time there.

Thanks so much for taking the time to rate and review us. Thanks, too, for stopping by our place on your way to Orlando! We hope you had a good trip to Florida. We strive to make Discovery Center a place where people of all ages can enjoy themselves and even learn a little something. It sounds like your family did just that! Hopefully next time you are on your way through town you can spend more time with us! Thanks again.
