We were greeted promptly by staff at front desk and given information about a family membership which we purchased. We toured the indoor facility and enjoyed the interactive exhibits. The area was very clean and we will certainly return.

I have taken many kids to the DHDC. They have something for all of them---from toddlers to young teens. They change exhibits often. There are physical activities as well as cerebral ones.
