  • I have been to the creative discovery museum many many times and it just never gets old. It was great to bring my little one to a place I always loved as a child and she also loved it! This museum is perfect for kids of many ages. There is so much to see and do. The kids can literally be here for hours and not even know it. This museum allows kids to be creative and use their imaginations. They can learn and play all at the same time. Perfect place for parents and kids to bond as well.
  • I have a membership here, and the cost to use ratio is great. The membership pays for itself within two visits. The recent upgrade to the water play area is really nice. My girls enjoyed it a lot when we were there last. They also enjoy the staple areas on the bottom level. I really like the different rotating exhibits that they have throughout the year on the upper level, and I can't wait to see the upgrades they are working on. This a great place to have fun, especially during the summer months.
