  • Drove in from Kansas City as a trip out of town. I have 4 kids from 2-9. All the kids had fun and enjoyed the time we spent and we spent around 4 hours there. I did still have a few gripes. The staff....  more »
  • Took my 7 year old granddaughter. She loved the variety of experiences. The slime making session was her favorite. There was a large variety of activities for ages toddler to 12 yr olds.  more »
  • A fantastic place to take the kids! This facility is always clean, and considering the clientele that's a massive victory. The employee's are polite and respectful to parents, as well as energetic and active with kids. The place is great for quality time with your children, hosting many events year round. The price is obscenely low, $6 dollars for a full day of admission, and located right next to Gage park, Gage pool, and the Topeka Zoo. Its also just down the way from a dozen restaurants, which makes it a great start for all day fun, or an afternoon break for the kids. Yes, parental supervision is required, so don't think you can just drop your kids off and run, but I can think of much worse places to spend an afternoon with the kids.
  • Children's Discovery Center is aptly named. There is plenty of scientific and physics learning activities. They can learn while playing. Children of most any age who have a bit of self-initiative will have a great learning experience. It is best to take them in groups of two or more, as many of the activities call for interplay. Adults can experiment and learn on their own as well. Let the children go to do their own experimenting. If they have a question, they will ask. Recommended for family or small school outings. Retain your receipt, so you can take a lunch break and return in the afternoon.
