My nieces (8 and 4) love this spot. My sons (5 and 1) appreciated it at least as much. Neither gender nor age was a barrier to enjoying the Children's Discovery Museum. The kids enjoyed blowing enormous bubbles/sets of bubbles outdoors. They also built huge bricmbased play structures, to share with other kids at the museum. The story time was good, but the related arts and crafts time was even better. There were other (experimental) stations available for kids to explore. As a science/engineering PhD and as a parent of 2 kids (5 &1), I felt this place was a great place for them to explore, to experiment, to create. Well done! Seriously, quite well done, in the infrastructure, the variations, the themes available for exploration. We could've come every day for a week without becoming bored. (Or less frequently, for a year! But we live >2000 miles away, so that wasn't a concern.)

We took our nearly 3 year old grand daughter to the museum. She was initially overwhelmed by everything there was to do. The museum was very busy that day too. Once she got used to the activity level she enjoyed herself. I think the next time she will love it. The kids that were a little older were having a wonderful time.

Lots of fun for children under 8 but leaves the older kids with little to do. We were there twice in June and the same book was read each time. Seems to me 2 different books could be read a day. Other than that it was fun time for all.

My grandchildren loved the interactive environment and the offerings of classes that are regularly offered. My 11 year old was not as excited as the 4 and 7 year old as the interactive items were more for younger children.

We enjoyed an afternoon at the Museum with our kids and our friends' family. We were able to keep the kids engaged for about two hours.
