Discovery Playhouse is a smallish children's museum that appears fairly new, and it also appears they are getting ready to expand further. Although on the smaller side, there was plenty for our toddler to occupy him for several hours. Being a smaller town, the museum was spacious and never crowded, which is a nice contrast to the bigger city children's museums (i.e. Magic House in STL).

The toddler area was large and well-done. I'd say nearly 1/3 of the museum was dedicated to toddlers or younger.

Nice location right downtown, with plenty of free parking in a lot across the street.

Overall, if in Cape with kids I'd recommend a visit!

My 2 year old LOVES Discovery Playhouse. We bought a family pass in October and have already gotten our money's worth out of it!

My husband and I visited today with our 18-month-old son. He spent two hours playing, and could have spent more if we'd let him. He especially liked the toddler area with slide and the water play area. I can't recommend this place highly enough if you have a toddler!
