We took our grandson ages 1 & 3 to Discovery Place Kids. It's a beautifully constructed children's learning paradise. Even at their young ages, the kids were able to play & interact with 75% of the exhibits.

Had the best time and the service was awesome! Was able to do activities at our own pace but they also offer shows during the day as well. Definitely worth the $$
