Discovery Place Science Reviews
Exploration de l'espace ou monde des insectes tout est passionnant pour les parents et surtout les enfants more »Exploring the space or world of insects everything is exciting for parents and especially children
Fun day trip! Well worth it. We will be back. The IMAX was fun and my son loved all the hands on activities. more »
Excellent place to take children of all ages! Many varied experiences including a large number that are interactive. There are also movies and a gift shop. All of which are both educational and highly entertaining. I recommend Discover Place Science for your own family and friends, or out-of-town guests.
I really liked this place although we got there too late to see everything. The areas we did get to see were very interesting and informative. The staff one the floor was great as well. I didn't realize until we got there that there are more than one Discovery Place museums in the area. I really want to go too the science museum. I will definitely come back here when I have more time and would highly recommend this place to anyone.
