“Builds creativity and wears out children”
Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

The creative discovery museum does an excellent job. It has many hands on exhibits to delight children from any age. It is well maintained and is staffed by great people. There is even a baby safe play area where my little 7 month old was quite happy. The older children enjoyed the dancing, screen printing, and Dino digging. They also got to touch snakes and real Dino bones! In the clinic area my little doctor was able to check my pulse and blood pressure. She also wrapped my arm in a bandage! We had a great time but beware it is very easy to lose your children with all the activities so keep a sharp eye out and you'll do just fine!

“Fun for the kids!”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

Excellent children's museum -- my kids are 6, 3, and 1. Several different areas to explore and play. My children loved the Hospital/Clinic, the roof deck, and playing with the magnets and tracks (with the balls). They provide wristbands for adults, would also be helpful if they stamped children and adults. Because of how the ground floor play area is laid out, it is hard to keep track of 3 kids exploring 3 different areas. All in all, a great afternoon.

“Wore out the little people”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

We went here when we had a few hours to kill before driving ten+ hours to our next destination. Our primary purpose was to wear out our small children before putting them in the car. It worked. They napped for a few hours after checking this out. It is really a great space for running and exploring. I, personally, found it entertaining as well.

“Fun and so much to do”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Took my 2 year old granddaughter, this past week and her mother and I had a really good time too! I think my granddaughters favorite part was getting to do her own face paint. Too much to mention in a short review but a great time! My only complaint would be that they need hand sanitizer at each station, only seen a couple of the through out the museum
