There is so much to do and it is all hands on. The kids go from station to station so excitedly! They have a blast - and are learning at the same time. They can go do their favorite parts again.

The Discovery Center looks great, and the walking paths outside the museum are enjoyable; however, I just wish there were more exhibits concentrating on Science/Nature. They do have a few exhibits that are nice, but it could use a few more educational areas.

Awesome place for parents and kids. Hands on science and art inside and out as well as critter encounters. Trails to walk, picnic areas, and a great parents and tots program weekly. Kids and parents will be entertained alike.

I used to take my children to the old Discovery Center and they loved it! I also would take my Girl Scout troop and now our grandson loves to go to the Discovery Center. Adults also enjoy all the wonderful things to do and see.
