We are members to Discovery Space so we visit somewhat regularly. I feel like there's always something a little different each time we go. My kids are 3 and 6 and love playing with the different exhibits. The space is small, but there are a...More
Our family loves this place AND they are expanding!! The current location isn't huge, but they do pack a lot of fun, educational, hands on activities into the space. And like I mentioned above, they will be moving into a much larger building very soon....More
The Discovery Place was my Kindergartener's favorite stop on his first field trip. He enjoys science and he loves to get "hands on." DS had about 2 hours worth of learning entertainment for his curious mind and he wants to go back. The space is...More
