We've been to many children's museums, and the Discovery Museum stands out as our favorite. We've especially been impressed by the variety and quality of their regular events. Today, we made fully functioning wooden birdhouses for no extra cost. There's free WI-FI and a snack room for picnic lunches. Be sure to sign up for the family membership! It's awesome.

There is so much to do and see. We love the boats in the water and library areas. They have alot of different programs and summer camp events.

We've been there a few times and at first it was very entertaining for our children and grandchildren. We recently took a couple of our newest grandbabies there and it was quite disappointing. Many of the educational hands on items were no longer working, yet still there. They talk about additional new items being brought it, but they would be better to invest in those that are broken first.

We took our kids here on a rainy day. They had a great time. Even our 1 year old was entertained! I highly recommend this if you are in the area.

We stopped here on our way out of town and our 1.5 yr old had a blast. I really liked the Maine habitat area and the human body exhibit. He loved the semi-truck and kept wanting to get in and drive it!

We were here about 2 hrs which was perfect, but older kids could probably spend longer, especially if they did some of the crafts and activities.

Also, this museum is part of the Discovery museum network, so our VA Discovery museum pass actually got us in here for free...but I would pay if it hasn't because it was so good!
