Whenever they visit from out of town, a trip to the Discovery Center is always a highlight for our grandchildren. The creativity and well thought out construction of the various exhibits stimulates the imagination of children from 2 - 12.

This has be a kids favorite destination for decades! Lots to do and touch for kids of all ages. The new storybook garden outside is a neat addition for nice days.

The gardens as well as the indoor space are great for small children up through about 10. You can get lost here for several hours and in the winter it's a wonderful way to spend the day. A friend of ours hosted an overnight birthday sleepover here and it was a huge hit with the kids.

We have a science center pass and make very good use of it. The great thing about the pass is they all do a share program and we were lucky to be able to visit the Discovery Center in Binghamton. We spent 3 hours here had to pull the kids away. This is definitely one of the coolest places for kids to go to.
