"I have been coming here since I was a young child. It has always been a magical place where I felt free to explore and learn. I was not the biggest fan of Science, but at the Discovery Center, it was fun. I looked up to all of the Scientists that worked there and thought it would be so cool to be like them. Once I became an adult with my own children, I brought them here as often as possible. We have so many great family memories at the Discovery Center."

- Heather S.

"Such a fantastic and interactive place for kids and parents. We have an annual membership, and it's certainly worth it. Our kids love to create and play here."

- Mark

"Always have a great time. They have super friendly and helpful staff. My kids may not know it, but they learn something new every time we go!"

- Sarah

"Great place to bring kids. They have stuff for every age, from toddler to pre-teen. They also have party space you can rent to host birthday parties. You can get a membership, and it'll save you a lot of money!"

- Brian

"Tons of family fun! We spent 2 hours there to break up a long road trip. The animal lady was REALLY awesome and shared some fun info while she was feeding the critters. Highly recommend a stop. There is also a large pond to explore as well as a playground and splash water park right there."

- Mackenzie

"Wildcat Bluff is such a beautiful place to enjoy a nice walk. Make sure to allow enough time; you'll always want to stay as long as possible to take it all in. Or it's a wonderful run as well. Just please be honest & leave your admission in the box if the office is closed. Also, bring a camera if possible!"
