always a good time at Discovery center! having fun and learning at the same time is always a win. the kids learned about the science behind weather, farming, sports, and so much more! the outside play area is also a lot of fun with lots to climb on, sand to dig in, and a cool little cave

There was so much for my 3 year-old and 6 year-old grandsons to do that was age appropriate. They had a wonderful time, and while we spent the whole day there, they didn't want to leave at closing time. It was a wonderful day.

We have been going for years and it goes in cycles where things break then a year later they work we keep our membership and we get a chance to play with it all, next to be fixed I would guess are the outdoor experience parts as the inside is currently running at 80% good.
