“Great place for Kids 2-50”

Fort Collins Museum of Discovery
Ranked #6 of 113 things to do in Fort Collins
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed March 7, 2014

Found this Museum to be so much more than we had expected. A wide range of very interactive exhibits that will entertain and inform just about everyone. Mostly science oriented it has a mix of exhibits that will attract even a teenager. Light, movement and music are big parts of the museum.
Our four grandchildren (2-8) were nicely entertained for over two hours, additionally the visit created enough interest and questions that the kids were entertained with asking more questions and looking up more information that they were entertained much longer. At one point we all got into a discussion about molecular bonds thanks to an exhibit.
There is stuff for the history buff also.
We arrived when the museum opened and had it to ourselves for most of the first hour.
A train going by on the tracks just 50 yards from the museum's front door just before we walked inside was also a big hit.

Great for all ages 0 - 100+. We like the different instruments and the various exploration rooms. Fun and educational for the whole family.

This is one of the best "children's" museums I have ever been to! There are things to do for kids of all ages and all the exhibits look relatively new and well-kept. It seems that the primary exhibits revolve around music, which my husband loved as he is a musician himself. There are exhibits on building, the effects of wind, sound and vibration, human anatomy, clothing, etc. This is a great place to visit on an afternoon on a weekend with the family, but to be perfectly honest, I'd come here by myself and visit if I had the time.

Now this is a find, for the young and old alike. The dome theater has a number of good, educational films and the interactive exhibits are a trip onto themselves. WWV---well worth visting
