“Great educational opportunites abound in a cool air conditioned child friendly setting”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

The Museum offers small stations with experiential play opportunities. Everything is touch and play. The favorite areas seem to be the Vet Clinic, supermarket, painting the car, supermarket, digging for dinosaurs. It is has big windows and lots of natural light. The gift shop offers an extensive assortment of educational toys.

“"Discovery" is only part of the Children's Discovery Museum”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

Been a while since I took several of my twelve granchildren to the Museum. Wonderful experience for all of us. Plenty to entertain most ages of children from 'painting the VW' - to a rock climbing wall, playing dress up in the attic to grocery shopping and a stop and make your own (prentend) pizza. Couldn't ask for a better activity for children.

WARNING to parents or grandparents: Wear tennis shoes or flats because the children will not want to leave! I was there when they opened; I was there when they closed!

“Visit with Granddaughter and Great Grandson”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

This is a great place to take the great and grand kids. It teaches them how to tie knots, paint an old VW, wear clothes from the 20's and 30's. Teach them to ring up a cash register, draw and color pictures.

“Nice....”
Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

Took my daughter here while we were visiting Palm Springs with my husband on his business trip. It's a short drive from Palm Springs & easy to get to. It was very clean and staff were super friendly. I would recommend this especially on a hot day!!
