My nieces loved this place. They got to play in a grocery store, restaurant, and to learn about being firefighter. Neat place for kids. Keeps them busy for several hours putting on the clothes too.

This place is great when you take the kids. They can be what they want to be (pretend) and it is cool to watch them play and have fun. As an adult, I had fun also.

Our focus age group is 2 to 10 years of age, but older siblings seem to find more sophisticated ways of playing in the museum and enjoy it just as well. Hope to see you at The Discovery Center, soon!
