The displays are hands on, very well made, and they handle crowds so well you don't realize how many kids are involved at one time. The water room lets them get their hands wet while keeping the rest dry.

A great place for kids of all ages in the heart of Charlotte. Whether a family outing or a school outing the experience is always a wonderful one with plenty to entertain and teach.

Great interactive Museum for kids ages 6 and older. A great way to introduce how Science can be fun.

Every time we visit family in the Charlotte area, we always make a stop at Discovery Place! Our little ones really enjoy the fish and other critters. The highlight though is definitely the little kiddo room downstairs. We have to pry our kids off the water table. I always forget to pack an extra pair of shoes when we go. Usually they get their feet wet as they play. In any event, this is a MUST for families. Kids of all ages will not only have fun, but learn something along the way.

Even though this attraction is mainly for families I had a great time going through with my husband. It was fun to play and to act a little childish for a change. My only complaint is that it's not bigger! Well worth it though and we went in the morning so it was not crowded.
