  • This place is incredible. It has so many different cool features. The wildlife exhibits are displayed very realistically & there's lots of buttons for little ones to push for sounds/ pictures. The gem exhibit is super cool. It's set up to look like you're going into a cave and there's tons of different crystals to look at. There's a cool mummy room. The IMAX is awesome. There's a discovery room for young ones that is SO MUCH FUN. It has a water table that shoots water in the air, a table that has a water/smoke waterfall in the middle, tons of cool magnets, puzzles, & building supplies, a play kitchen, a play theater, the list goes on & on. There's dinosaur skeletons and fossils. We discover something new about this place every time we visit because it is absolutely humongous. They have something for everyone to enjoy! It's truly one of our favorite places for my husband and me to take our 3.5 and 1.5 year old children.
  • Very nice museum! Wasn't very crowded on a Wednesday. Spent about 3 hours there and my 2-year old didn't get bored. He loved the Discovery Zone! Definitely felt I got my money's worth and would recommend, especially to those with young children!
