Discovery Place Kids is part of the DP family of hands-on museums. The original DP is in Charlotte and this review is for DP Kids in Huntersville. For several years we've had a yearly membership and it's worth every penny. It gets fairly crowded on weekends so I suggest arriving early. If you have a membership you can visit for... More

This place is AWESOME! It has a post office, grocery store, restaurant etc that kid can use to simulate life in the real world. The water station was a big hit also. I finally had to drag my five yr old out after 4 hrs. We plan to purchase memberships and visit often!

A wonderful experience for children from toddler age and older. Lots of interactive activities keeping the children busy for hours. Would go again!

This is a great place to bring your young children. It is educational while still being fun! It is great for smaller toddlers as well.

Great place for small kids. Weather permitting they conduct some great outdoor activities. Story time was our high light. They have a discounted admission fees for care givers.

I had a membership here for a couple years when my kids were little (less than 7). They loved it, and it was a great place for them to play when the weather was bad. My younger son loved the building section while my older son's favorite was the craft room. I was there for a special event last weekend... More

What a great place! My 1.5 year old loved everything! Her favorite was the water table with a built in high chair. But she seriously had a blast. I would say it's really only good for kids 8 and under. We will go back many times!

We took our grand daughters (6 & 4) to this place and they loved it. They came back a few months later and went with their entire family. Kids ranged from 1 to 8 in age. Plenty of things to do to keep all of them entertained.

We always love a visit here. Our kids were highly entertained for a good 2 hours- (2 year old and 4 year old). We spent the most time at the "Restaurant" exhibit- where my kids ran credit cards on the cash register, baked pizza in a brick oven and washed dishes in the sink- while my husband and I sat...

This is our second year as members and I must say that I am more disappointed this visit than ever. It's seems every time I come, things are more and more messy and lacking. Now I know kids are playing and things are going to get messy, however with the number of employees walking around, I have yet to see... More
