I have spent countless hours in the Museum of Discovery. I have been there for birthday parties, summer camp, lazy afternoons and summer days. I remember an amazing exhibit and lecture on the Tesla coil. I remember cool explosions made of dry ice. One of my favorite exhibits is the tornado shelter in the basement. I also like the place...

I have held an annual membership for my son and I for three years now. That, alone, should tell you what an enriching and worthwhile experience the MOD is for children. :-) But, to be more specific, the MOD is a multi-level / segmented museum that is bound to have something of interest for your children (it can actually be...

I took my Grandsons to visit the Museum in June, 2016. We were looking for a place to visit on a hot summer day. The visit was wonderful!! Totally kid friendly, from building blocks to learning how to be a television weatherman. The boys had a grand time. We will visit again soon.

My husband and I just moved to the area and we were exploring the area when we came across this little gem. Lots of neat and educational, not to mention interactive exhibits for kids of all ages. Spent about 3-4 hours here. We can't wait to come back!

We have older children (16 and 13) they enjoyed being here. It is hard having family time that we all enjoy. This was one of those places. We especially loved the tornado room. It is also neat to go back and see what has changed.

Very nice setting for the family to experience. There are interesting areas not only for children but adult as well! my 12 y/o didn't even want to leave and my 2 was simply amazed by the stuff available for her to do! Location is in the heart of LR downtown and plenty of restaurants and hotels nearby within walking distance!... More

This museum is interesting for all ages, but be warned adults, you need to be aware it is directed toward the kids and be in the mood to have a good time!
