This is an amazing place that is a true experience. From the live animals and wonderful aquarium to a vast variety of hands on activities that are fun and interesting for children and adults alike. We loved EVERYTHING about this place.

“Keeps you wondering”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014 via mobile

This was a very nice visit with a couple of friends. It was very weird fighting with children to get to try some of the stuff, but like it very much. Totally keeps you wondering around the place during the day.

“Go, but only with kids.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2014

Once upon a time Discovery Place has something for everyone. The staff was great, but we left feeling we had made a donation rather than enjoyed ourselves

Very nice facility and clean….better for kids 4 and over than young two year olds but both had a good time regardless.

“Cool”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

If you have young children you'll love this place. Plenty to see and do. The only downside of owning a season pass is you get bored with same shows and exhibitions as they only change every 6 months or so.
