We had a blast and learned a lot. Me and my Mom love visiting places like this. We went when there was hardly any body there because we are adults. But even if the place had been busy we would not have felt out of place. Love the little star trek facts spread around!!!!

We took a trip here during our vacation. The prices are super reasonable for a family. One of the cheaper things we did while on vacation. We spent quite a bit of time here looking at everything. We did enjoy ourselves but I am giving it 4 stars because I truly believed it is best for younger kids, under age 11. That being said it was still an enjoyable experience.

We came on a Monday and it was quiet. There were quite some exhibits for kids of all ages. Very educational. Not a bad place to take family to this place.

The Discovery center delivers on what it preports to do, intrique and excercise your brain. It is a wonderful, informative place, and you will thoroughly enjoy your visit there.

Take your grandkids! Something facinating for any age from 4 to 12. Interactive exhibits in almost every level.

My only child is a year old and we have come here a few times. There is a room specifically for children aged 5 and under, and he really enjoys it! Lots of fun, oversized activities for him to engage in! I'm really looking forward to making the Discovery Center a regular place for us to visit as he grows older - so far, I can only review the under 5 room, but if the rest of the museum is as engaging as this is, I have no doubt it's a winner!

we took the kids and they had a great time. there is 4 floors to go through. a range of things to do for all age groups. time varies due to what you do and how much time you do each activity

Well, this is perhaps supposed to be a kids venue, but go with you kids and you can't help but get in on the fun. If it's too hot, cold, rainy for a great day of play outside, this venue can let kids discover and burn off energy, because this place has ....4 stories.... on 7 levels? It's it's own puzzle maze just to get around. Kids can stay busy all day for many trips on different days. While the displays may not have changed (though they do) you just didn't see that in that way the last time you went. This is a great place to see. Oh, and membership gets you into Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC) which gives you discounts around the world.... so cool!

My son truly enjoyed the center. As you walk in there are dinosaur digs, lots of things that get their little minds going. A safe environment and with lots of levers and pulleys. Plan to spend 3-4 hours there.

This place is very nice and has a lot of stuff! It is mostly for young children, but teens and adults will find some interesting things as well.
