Overview

There is so much to see and experience at the Discovery Science Place. It's a good idea to prepare so that you don't miss any of the action. We have a variety of programs, exhibits, and events that are sure to entertain and educate the whole family. Because of the hands-on nature of the exhibits, the DSP is a wonderful place for visitors of all abilities and ages to experience and learn more about our world.

This museum never fails to bring a favorable response . The displays appeal to a variety of age levels. There are places for the adult chaperones to sit while the children explore in plain sight. We go often.

While in town visiting my oldest daughter, we decided to check this place out. It is a great experience. My youngest is 5 and is having a blast. At the moment she is a Veterinarian 😬.
