I've given you a couple sneak peeks but for you to find out more please go there. That place was AMAZING especially for a nerd like me! Everything was interactive and you could learn a lot. It was my first time going there and I just was so amazed if I didn't have to rush based off of time I would've spent hours but of course I had places to be. If you bring kids there I can imagine they would adore it it's perfect for them especially if they are touchy or love adventure and reading stuff like that. There is times where you learn and times where you have fun. There is 4 different floors 3 is more for kids while the 4th one is for college kids. The employees are kind and helpful they let you understand anything if you need assistance. I highly recommend one day take your time and your kids and just enjoy a creative day

The Discovery Center in Springfield, Mo. offers a wealth of learning opportunities for all ages. The activities are hands on and visual. There is a certain amount of reading involved, but nonreaders can still learn the mechanics involved in the workings of the human body to aviation, magnets, a living bee hive, and the list goes on and on. There are 4 floors to explore so plan on returning after lunch. You will be stamped so you can leave and return during the day for one fee. The Discovery Center in Springfield is definitely an enjoyable educational experience for family entertainment.

We took our kids ages 6, 11, 15 but we all had fun. They had a bed of nails and a static ball and all sorts of interesting things. Extracting our own DNA was fascinating to our little scientist.

Moved from CO area where Denver museum was highlight of our weekends. Come to find out our membership was reciprocated and admission was free today. While it isn't as big as the museum in Denver and doesn't have mummies or dinosaurs it's still pretty awesome. This place has a real Tesla coil though sweet!
