It's worth every penny! So much for for kids 10 and under. Purchasing a membership is really cost effective.

My 4 year old loved it!!! We paid extra for the dinosaur exhibit… I’d pass on that is not worth it. But the actual Discovery place is fantastic lots of kids to play with! Also lots of really cool centers to learn and play, price is great $10 adult $8 senior $8 kids
Great place. My 8 year old loves it. Tons of things to do. Any time we go we spend hours there. Are favorite part is the cave and the vet. Thanks for a great place to learn.
