This a fun and educational place not only for children but also for adults. We had fun at the grocery store area. The children pretended to be cashiers and we were the shoppers.

When you travel with young children, you have to find ways to entertain them, and that often means paying a visit to places designed with kids in mind. Children’s museums are an obvious choice and during a family vacation to Las Vegas, we did indeed find time to take the kiddos to this attraction, Discovery Children’s Museum. At Discovery Children’s... More

The museum was great, reasonably priced at $14.50 a person. They have 3 full floors, and my 5 year old and I were here about 4 hours which was the perfect amount of time. There is free parking and it's also walkable to the outlets which is nice. Perfect off-strip activity for kids.

We went here so the kids could do something fun, since Vegas is mainly known for adult entertainment. They ended up having a BLAST! They loved that there was different things to do there. We spent majority of a day there when we originally planned on going for a few hours. Definitely recommended for children of ALL ages!

My 4th trip with grandkids to this amazing museum. I loved how excited they were when I told them we were going. Since they are under 13, I have to stay with them. My favorite rooms are the water area and the pirate/castle/theater as there is a place for me to sit. They are very independent in this museum and... More

This is a good place to spend some time with your kids. Ideally for 3-9 year olds, but as long as your kid is walking, 1-3 year olds will be fine too. There is a special room for children under 3 to play in. You can role play in different settings: airport, bank, car shop, kitchen, draw/paint, climb up a... More

Be ready to do some climbing of stairs and chasing your kids! So much to do and see, make sure you have plenty of time for them to enjoy it all.

Visited the museum while on vacation with our kids ages 4 and 6. The price felt a touch steep at first but after staying 2.5 hours it didn't seem too bad after all. The place was very clean and modern and all the staff we encountered were pleasant and engaging. There were 3 different levels to explore with something to... More

Visited with a two year and had a very good two hours or so. The best part was the water feature area. Also there was a car where the wheels could be taken off. Also a ball game.
