“Great place for kids!”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Another place I've been going to since I was a little kid. If you're under 12 years old, this place is awesome! There is so much fun stuff to do! Its like the ultimate imagination station, you can pretend to be an EMT in a replica ambulance, a firefighter in a firetruck, a postman, even a checker in a huge replica supermarket! The only downside is there really isnt much for parents to do...but the kids are never going to want to leave!

Reviewed 19 April 2014 via mobile

Our kids had a lot of fun inside and also in the Garden of Stories. They enjoyed the ambulance, getting groceries and the dentist area.

The kids had a good time at the Discovery Center. Lots of activities for the little ones. Not recommended for older kids. Stayed about four hours.

Wonderful fun for young children and their parents also. Had a great time interacting with my children on all the interesting areas. We all had so much fun and there's something for everyone to be interested in.

This facility is a treasure in our community -- we're lucky to have it, Allows kids to get hands on in a way that some other museums do not.
