Great place to learn – Love Discovery Place and the Omni Max Theater. The setting is perfect for young and old alike. Parking could be better.
One of the country's best hands-on museums is the perfect family outing for a rainy day. – In Short
This science and technology museum features an enormous Van der Graaf generator crackling with menacing blue lightning bolts, a giant walk-through replica of a human eyeball and animatronic dinosaurs, complete with sound effects. A three-story rain forest, aquarium, NASA control-room simulation and other hands-on displays mean that the young ones--and their moms and dads--will have plenty to hold their attention. Discovery Place also hosts the Omnimax Theatre, a combination Imax theater and planetarium.
Superb Learning – I have visited this place at least 4 times and I love each time I went. Excellent learning projects for all ages. Excellent classes that increases your information about the habitat and animals. Excellent eating area and clean. Would love to see an additional place for students to create their own projects or re-create projects on hand to inhance learning.
IT'S A WINNER – My 2 & 7 yr old boys really enjoy Discovery Place & I have to say it's a place my husband & I don't mind going to over & over. It's always been an enjoyable experience
