I had to drag my boys, 6 & 3 out of the museum. There is so much to see and do for all ages, including Mom and Dad. The cost is kind of pricey, but is worth it if you are willing to spend a few 3+ hours, which we could have easily done.

Your kids will love it. It has interactive displays set up everywhere, and its an educational experience as well as a fun one.

As an adult, its not as enjoyable, depending on when you go. If you go on a busy day, you're going to have a bad time.

We went as a family and had lots of things to see and do. It keep my 3 year old grand daughter busy. Fun things to learn about while having a hands on experience. This is a must go.

The kids love going back to the Discovery Center. It keeps them occupied for a few hours and they love the interactive displays.

This was such a cool place to visit and kids love it!! It reminded me of the Magic House in St. Louis, but with even more stuff. And more hands on stuff for the kids. I would go back in a heart beat because the 4 hours we set aside for it was not enough. The staff were friendly and very helpful and actually tried to teach while having fun. 5 stars!!
