“Perfect place for family fun!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012 via mobile

I took my 3 year old daughter here for a part of our "Mommy & Me" day. We had other activities planned but this one began our day.

Port Discovery is a fun and educational place for kids 2-13 (in my opinion). There is a play area fit kids to run their own store, gas station and diner. There is also an arts & crafts room, storytelling, sand, play area and so much more.

The price is about $13 per person. Some bogo coupons can be found in Entertainment Books, and there are also family nights when the rates are much cheaper.

Your kids will have so much fun here and if you're like me, their happiness will make you happy. Win/Win Situation!!!

“One seriously excellent children's museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

We have been to many children's museums and this definitely ranks up there among the best. Designed for kids up to 10 years old, we thought it could engage even older depending upon the kids. They had a nano-section that was really well put together and fun.

“Discover more!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

Great place for the toddler and early elementary crowd. Noisy and fun for all. Children can crawl, run, climb, touch and play throughout the museum. Your kids will love it. So much for them to do.

“You will surely not regret this trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012 via mobile

I'm sure there are bigger and better Childrens attractions out there, but for this particular one, is a fantastic place to check out, and unless you don't like fun, you will be pleased with the 3 story Jungle Gym, Miss Persseptions House of Mystery, a family friendly Nano science exhibit, and a great giant room for the littlest ones to play until their hearts content.

“Good place for kids in winter”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

It is not a "real" museum in a strict sense. However, it is a very fun place for kids up to 12 y/o, especially during winter!
