What a great place! My 1.5 year old loved everything! Her favorite was the water table with a built in high chair. But she seriously had a blast. I would say it's really only good for kids 8 and under. We will go back many times!

We took our grand daughters (6 & 4) to this place and they loved it. They came back a few months later and went with their entire family. Kids ranged from 1 to 8 in age. Plenty of things to do to keep all of them entertained.

We always love a visit here. Our kids were highly entertained for a good 2 hours- (2 year old and 4 year old). We spent the most time at the "Restaurant" exhibit- where my kids ran credit cards on the cash register, baked pizza in a brick oven and washed dishes in the sink- while my husband and I sat...

This is our second year as members and I must say that I am more disappointed this visit than ever. It's seems every time I come, things are more and more messy and lacking. Now I know kids are playing and things are going to get messy, however with the number of employees walking around, I have yet to see... More

We are up here escaping Hurricane Mathew and were looking for a fun place to spend a rainy day with toddlers. This is it!! Amazing, wide variety of activities that were so much fun for the kids and fun to watch as adult. Very clean and well taken care of, free parking right behind the building. At first i thought...

This is a wonderful interactive children's museum. Great for infants to about 2nd grade. Lots of interactive activities and experiences. Highly recommended. Also on a bus line and discounted rates for those on limited income.

We recently vacationed near Lake Norman and on a crummy day decided to give discovery place a try. I must say we were very impressed! There were tons of activities that kept the kids moving and entertained. We stayed for just over two hours and everybody slept good because they were so tired. Well worth the visit if you have...

We used to be members here, but since we've moved to south Charlotte, we obviously aren't able to make it up to Huntersville too often. We decided to take the kids up last weekend since it was way too hot to do something outside. The prices have definitely jumped, they basically charge $10 per person, kid or adult. I really... More

This was a fun place for kids 2-8. Granddaughters loved the restaurant and almost spent all of their time there. It was very cute. The grocery store was also a hit as was the water play area. Overall, a great way to spend 2-3 hours. Seems like there should be a lower price for adults as they are basically supervising... More
