This was a fun place for kids 2-8. Granddaughters loved the restaurant and almost spent all of their time there. It was very cute. The grocery store was also a hit as was the water play area. Overall, a great way to spend 2-3 hours. Seems like there should be a lower price for adults as they are basically supervising... More

We were in town for a soccer tournament and decided to visit. It's pretty underwhelming for the price of $10 per person. For what you get it should be half of the price.

Our first time to Discovery Kids. We were "concerned" as we are the 59 yr old grand parents. If was so fun to see all the kids enjoying the many play areas. It is clean, safe, fun and educational all at the same time. We had our special birthday room with the sweetest girl that stayed with us for the... More

A good time for the family. Easy way to spend a few hours. Tons of fun for kiddos. We will be back quite a bit.

We've had a yearly pass here for the past two years. This is s great place to bring young kids for hands on activities. My kids literally beg to come here! Clean and well organized! We are so happy to have a place like this so close to home!

We have had yearly passes to DK since it opened. It is one of our favorite places to take our grandchildren. Lots of fun things to do ... general store, cafe, theater, bank, airport, auto mechanic, lego, undersea adventure, craft room, water area for toddler and older kids. We LOVE DK!

A great day trip for those with younger children. It can get crowded on weekends and holidays but the staff tries to keep it orderly. A bit expensive but my kids do ask to go there again and again so I think it's worth it.

This is not a museum for adults or older kids. 7/8 and under I would say. My 3 & 5 year old LOVE to go and ask to go even after we have been what feels like 100 times. I does get busy on rainy days but never feels over booked.

We took our grandkids (ages 5 and 6) and they loved it! They were on the move from the time we got there until closing time (5:00 p.m.) It is very hands-on. There's a fire truck they could climb in. A grocery store where they can "shop", even a cash register and little shopping carts. There's a water works area... More
