This is a blast when you are a kid! Definitely take them there, a lot to learn and not know you are learning and just a fun environment all around.

Our focus age group is 2 to 10 years of age, but older siblings seem to find more sophisticated ways of playing in the museum and enjoy it just as well. Hope to see you at The Discovery Center, soon!
