Museum of Discovery
At this museum, "hands on" is the rule. Children and adults are encouraged to participate in the exhibits and displays, and have fun learning about science, technology, nature and history along the way. Some of the interactive exhibits include Earth Journeys, where you can learn about Arkansas unique geology as well as interesting things about the rest of our home planet; Amazing You! teaches kids all about our bodies and how to keep them healthy.
If you have ever been to Magic House in STL this is similar but on a much smaller scale. Although my boys ages 10 and 3 enjoyed it I dont think it was worth the $10 per adult and $8 per child. We finished the entire place in under two hours. They did offer free kids meal at Boscoe's down the street when you show your admission receipt but the adult meals were over priced and very small portions...even the kids meals were bad. Dont bother going there just because of the free kids meal. But overall the Museum was ok...i wont be going back if i had the choice
When we went in Mar. they were a month away from remodeling and it was a rather boring place with a bunch of exhibits that weren't working. It might be more worth your time when they are finished remodeling later this year.
Our children are younger, so they only really enjoy the play area with the dragon at the gate. They aren't as impressed with the other exhibits. It IS fun and interesting, but we wish it was just a little less expensive. We usually go through the entire museum in less than an hour, so I just don't feel like we get the best bang for our buck. As a family of 5, we started going on only the free days (although, they aren't free anymore. You just pay whatever you feel comfortable with). I think older children that can truly engage in some of the experiments would get more out of it.
