This museum is way too fun! We came with our 3 yo son and all of us had a lot of fun. It’s just a very fun place! Exceeded our expectation!
Highly recommend if you are in Vegas with your children.

My 3 year old enjoyed the time here. He's been asking to go ever since he saw the museum and activities on Blippi. Looking forward to taking him back.

The worst Las Vegas has to offer
Jun 2021
Sad excuse for a "museum". My kids were bored and not intellectually challenged. If this is the best Las Vegas can do for children then shame on them.
They force you to wear a mask despite being vaccinated but don't believe in social distancing. They let everybody in and don't enforce social distancing. The very minute I walked into the place people were all on top of each other. No space to walk and very crowded. Worse than a sports event or concert. Staff look lost and confused. Never again!

My 7 y/o son had a great time, we spent over an hour exploring all the exhibits and taking place in the various activities. His favorite part was water world. We didn't make reservations ahead of time because we used Groupon tickets but had no issue accessing the museum on a Saturday afternoon. Staff was friendly and we saw several employees going around and disinfecting the high touch areas.

My kids 9 and 11 had sooo much fun!!
Jan 2021
The Discovery Children’s Museum is an amazing place, there is so much stuff and exhibits going on inside. Because of the current climate they are on a ten percent capacity so there is not a better time to take your family to experience. Just make reservations online before you go and you can have an amazing museum almost to yourself.

Great place for children
Apr 2021
If you are a family visiting Las Vegas, we highly recommend this activity. Probably best for children from ages 2 through 10. There are three floors with a myriad of interactive activities that will stimulate the mind. And for slightly older children, they can pretty much roam free and without any worries. And if smaller children get lost, the staff are really excellent at detecting this and tracking down anxious parents. There is no restaurant on site so bringing food or a picnic is probably a good idea. You can eat outside and they will permit reentry if you give them the heads up. They also validate parking. And all of the staff were very polite and pleasant. Also, watch out for entry discounts. Standard tickets are approximately $14 but you can get greatly reduced rates, to approximately three dollars come if you have WIC or similar cards.

Still open during COVID
Jan 2021
Still open during COVID. The middle section was closed. Still a nice place to visit. We went on a day where CCSD was closed and it still wasn't crowded. We were able to social distance and everybody wore masks.

WAIT UNTIL COVID IS OVER!
Aug 2020 • Family
Do not go here during Covid! My husband and I took our grandkids for what we thought was going to be a great experience. We paid full price as localS for our tickets. Half of the exhibits were closed or not fully operational and there was barely anything out for the kids to do. The employees stand around and talk to each other and wait for you to walk away from something to start cleaning. Being that this is our first time there it would've been nice if instead of the employees cleaning everything they were actually showing the kids how to do some of the exhibits. They also had employees following us around to make sure our mask did not fall beneath our nose. I understand that this is a policy that the museum has but they did not do this to other people that were in the museum. One of their employees followed my husband around and every time his mask went even a centimeter below his nose they reprimanded him. They also tried to reprimand our three-year-old granddaughter as soon as her mask went below her nose. We did the best we could with our grandkids trying to chase them around to keep their mask above their nose so we did not get reprimanded by the staff. I understand the museum has policies and procedures for cleaning and masks, but because it's a hands-on museum I feel that they should either open it up or just stay closed. Like I said do not waste your money going here during Covid unless it is some sort of a discount because you're not getting the full experience.

The LEAP approved guidelines of the DISCOVERY Children’s Museum can be found on the Museum’s health and safety webpage. You are referring to Nevada’s mandatory face covering Directive, which also states under Section 3 that “Businesses may adopt practices that exceed the standards imposed by Declaration of Emergency Directives… but in no case shall business practices be more permissive than the provisions of this Directive or those imposed by NV OSHA and the LEAP.” DISCOVERY Children’s Museum has chosen to follow the CDC’s guideline that face coverings should be worn by all individuals except children under the age of 2 or anyone who has trouble breathing, is unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance. DISCOVERY will permit a loose cloth or full-face shield (one that covers the chin) in place of a mask for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, mental health conditions, or other sensory sensitivities. Medical professionals have advised DISCOVERY Children’s Museum that visitors with asthma, respiratory illnesses and/or other medical conditions are at higher risk of contracting COVID-19, and therefore if they are not able to wear a face covering for these reasons, they should not be permitted to visit the Museum at this time. We understand and respect your decision and we look forward to welcoming you back to the museum when you feel more comfortable to do so.
