The Children's Discovery Museum Rating:

4 Stars
The Children's Discovery Museum is a unique and fun place for children. In my experience children ages 18 months to 5 years will probably get the most enjoyment from the museum.

Activities in the Children's Discovery Museum will engage your children to:

Explore- Lots of interesting rooms, tunnels and slides.
Question- How trains work, gravity
Learn- About wildlife, food groups and colors
Read- There are topical books throughout the museum that complement themes within each room. For example in the animal room there are several age appropriate books about animals.

What makes the Children's Discovery Museum unique is that it is located in a 120 year old Victorian home which gives the overall museum setting a ton of character. The Museum's management has done a nice job of creating activities that both stimulate children's thinking while being lots of fun. A few museum highlights include:

1. Model Train- Kids can climb inside, activate the whistle and fill the engine's coal bin.
2. Ball Track- Watch balls wind their way through a large and intricate track. This is a real favorite.
3. Dinner- Kids can cook all sorts of meal in this child size kitchen and dinner.

The staff does a great job of running the museum. First the staff is extremely friendly and they keep the museum very clean. They also do a great job of regulating the number of museum entrants so that there are never too many people inside. Kids seem to have a lot more fun when they are not tripping over each other and we adults prefer it as well. This does mean that you may wait to get in at times, but that's for the best. I recommend as close to 9:30 as possible on weekends to ensure no waiting.

The Discovery Children's Museum is a refreshingly low key alternative to other options like the Children's Museum in Boston. Admission is reasonably priced at $8 per person and will keep your kids entertained for 2 to 3 hours. Do check out the Children's Discovery Museum.
