This place has all kinds of activities for kids of all ages. My 3 year old was easily entertained for HOURS there. Even adults had a good time with the unique activities.

Discovery Place is a great day out for families. Whenever I take the kids there they never want to leave. Love the traveling exhibits, would like to see them maintain some of the interactive areas better as they always seem to be lacking supplies in the "crafty" areas. However I can understand with that many children in and out that could be challenge.

This place needs to step it up if Charlotte is ever going to be the world-class city it claims to be. This is supposed to be a Children's Museum, not engaging, not fun, and too few things to do.
