Lots of activities for children with real life experiences...visit a grocery store, dress up as a fireman, ride in a rocket ship, visit a doctor office, ride in an ambulance. Story garden outside is fun for kids, too...that is free.

We have a family membership to The Discovery Center and it is well worth it! Love to take the children there, always so much to do. Very clean and well-run. New exhibits all the time, yet some wonderful standard ones (the children love the kitchen!)
