“Fun & Educational”

My grandson loves Discovery Playhouse. He likes the banking educational tools, the experimental stations, really, he loves everything in there! I love that they make learning fun for kids. Will definitely be going back, again and again :)

“Great for little ones.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2014 via mobile

We went to the Discovery Playhouse, Nature Center, & then the Lazy L Safari. This place was great. We spent about an hour & a half to two hours here. My two year old loved it but my 9 year old was almost too old. They enjoyed the bank, the nursery, & the water tables. Kind of stunk that we had to pay admission for ourselves as well as my 13 year old but the small ones really enjoyed it.

I took my 3 year old daughter and 14 month old son. They both loved it. The grocery store and nursery were our favorites. As well as the airmaze.

“Lower prices and fun for all”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2014

We hadn't been to the museum in several years, we went this past weekend. I took my 8 year old, my 9 year old niece, and my 3 year old. We had a blast!!! They have made many improvements over the years. The girls enjoying being the bosses and playing bank, grocery store, doctor and dentist. The little one enjoyed sitting in the big fire truck and playing with the baby dolls in the baby nursery. We all had fun watching the foam balls go through the air pipes...simple entertainment for a great price! ($5/person) We spent about two hours there and they were wore out when we left! Good family fun!
