I have taken my kids here a few times when they were little. It doesn't have a lot of stuff for a museum but for a little one 11 and under its a nice place to go.

This is a nice attraction to take the kids to. It can’t hold a candle to other science museums but it is OK

It was brutal outside, so off to the Museum and the Imax theater. Cool for the kids, for the adults and inside out of the heat. Interactive exhibits, snack bar, immense theater. Kids are safe and love the Museum

This museum is super interactive and great for learning. We didn’t go with kids but the kids around us seamed to be having a lot of fun!

This museum is an amazing place to spend time with your family and friends. The attractions here are great for kids and adults young and old. Especially the 7D theater. Our family loved this museum and we will definitely be coming back for another visit.

Awesome time at the Discovery and Science Museum. Ticket fee is affordable. Activities are not only for kids but adults as well. Watched a movie at the adjacent Imax which completed the journey

Just three might be a little young, but there are plenty of hands on things to do that even very young children can enjoy. Our four year old grandsons had a blast. While there were some activities they couldn't participate... More
