As soon as we walked through the door I had to shove my kid out of the way so I could check out the exhibits. The center is well laid out with lots of interactive displays. There are areas for physical sciences, archeology, palentology, cultural and natural history. There is a dome theater and interactive displays indicate where we can go to see various things in the 40,000 acres of open space owned by the City. We're lucky to live here.
Very small. didn't take long to make it through all of it.. Less than 2 hours.y children enjoyed the hands on experience but after being at Explora in Abq a few months ago, this is weak. My children are 7 and 10.
Like: Variety of activities for a variety of ages. Some things you have to read and some things you don't. Major themes about the body, electricity, light and colors, dinosaurs, CO wildlife, and right now, bugs. Price is decent and it kept my three year old entertained. I asked her how she like it and she said, "it was a wonderful day".
Dislike: in an old elementary school, some displays are very homemade looking and worn out. Some of the displays were broken. I'm not sure how a yearly membership would work out - it's fairly small and I can't see going more than a couple times a year.
The Discovery Center is supposed to merge with a museum in 2011 and get a new building in a new location, so perhaps they will upgrade the equipment at that time. Worth a visit in the meantime.
I attended DSC with my two small children. We had a great time, despite the lack of cleanliness. Unfortunatly at the end my daughter tripped and hit her head on a table and was bleeding on her forehead. I quickly went to inquire about a first aid kit at the front desk. The lady at the desk glanced around and said "I think we do" while my daughter was bleeding and crying. She then proceeded to admit more patrons that were waiting to enter the facility. I again asked her for kleenex or something to help with the bleeding, and still no genuine effort. I finally just left so appalled by the lack of competent help and basic first aid supplies. I will say as I pulled away another employee ran out to see if I needed help. Thanks to the nice lady who tried to help!
