Addison enjoyed the facility to the fullest, her favorite area was in the grocery store. She shopped for about 30 minutes. It is the greatest experience to share with your grandchildren or children. Everyone was very polite and friendly.

I have a 5,7 & 13 year old and all of them found activities that kept them extremely interested. And the staff there were great. They were always some where close ready to explain the scientific meaning of the "fun" activity that kids were completing. They go so involved in the activities down on the 3rd floor that we did not have time to enjoy alot of the activities on the main floor. Will definitely return.

Looking for a great place to go with your children where they can have fun and learn and you can too?

Head to Discovery Place!

One of the premier children's museums in North Carolina, Discovery Place has exciting stage shows, interesting exhibits, a rainforest with jungle animals that you can pet, and everything in between.

I would wholeheartedly recommend going to Discovery Place - and if you live in the area, consider the family membership. It's not a whole lot more than the cost of attending with a family of 4 and you can come back any time all year long.

This was our second trip to Discovery Place & my 3 & 5 yr old really enjoyed it. There are many things to do that are good for their ages, as well as older kids - you can make it fit any age really - that's what's great about it! Younger kids enjoy the 'awe' aspects, while older kids can really get into the science of it all. It holds my kids attention for about 2-3 hrs - but they just want to see everything once & keep going...older kids may want to explore each activity more, so it make take more time. We also went during Spring Break this time, so it was packed...another reason they got bored easily bc every activity was over run with children - but that's to be expected sometimes! It's a great place.
