Attraction details
Owner description: Imaginations twist and fly through more than 100 hands-on exhibits at Discovery Cube OC (previously Discovery Science Center). Take the Eco Challenge and become a green superhero, feel the power of a real rocket engine "launch" and explore the inner workings of a two-story tall dinosaur! Traveling exhibits and annual events such as Spooky Science and Science of Gingerbread throughout the year ensure that there is always something new to discover.

A surprising find if you find yourself in the Anaheim area with kids and some time to spare - as we did following the volcanic erruption in Iceland recently and the resulting cancellation of flights into the UK.

Lots of hands-on exhibits, not too pricey and not overly busy - at least not mid-week. Kept our party of 2 adults and 2 children, aged 6 and 12 busy all day and not wanting to leave at closing time.

A perfect spot for a day when the weather isn't cooperating. Just down the street from some good family restaurants and a mall. The science center had enough things to entertain young kids for hours. Would definitely recommend to others.

We took our six year old son here last weekend and it impressed us as
the best kids science museum we've visited (and we've visited a number of them!). The exhibits were fun and interactive and my son had a great time experimenting as did my 44 year old chemical engineer husband!

I highly recommed this museum.

I just took my two young kids here (4 and 1) over the weekend and was happily surprised as to the activities that were available. The place is a lot larger than I expected with so many hands on things to do. There is a Sesame Street area that talks about the body, from washing your hands to internal body organs to yes, even poop. (good for those in potty training) In this area there are a lot of buttons and quizes and motor activities for the kids to play and do. also a "shopping" area for the kids. My 1 yr old even enjoyed running around. In another areas they talk about wind with wind tunnels and "flying" airplanes. There is a toddler section upstairs for the little ones to run around and even a soft play obstacle course. The main event was the dinosaur area with is located outside with a huge dinosaur that you can walk around and through and again another toddler play area. You can even go on a dino quest (extra cost), though we didn't participate in that. Overall this place was really fun and my kids really enjoyed it. I highly recommend going here if you are in the area.
