Discovery Place Kids-Rockingham
- Open Now
We love this place! And it's in a perfect location! There's a wonderful bakery next door with sweets and treats and a nice family restaurant across the street. And we love the boutiques that are there too. A great place to visit with the entire family!
We visited for the first time in April of 2022, and it was a hit with my children. They are nearly 3 and 5 and had so much fun exploring! When we arrived there were 2 school groups visiting. Even then it didn't feel overwhelming, although I was definitely more comfortable letting my children explore a little more freely after they departed. The museum staff is so friendly and everything is very clean and tidy. It made for a really good experience and we're looking forward to returning! A few notes...parking is in an adjacent public lot and was very easy. We packed snacks for a light lunch and ate in "the hub." ...again, super easy. Finally, we explored long enough that we stopped across the street for a bakery snack before heading for home. They don't open until 2:00 many days, but it was a great little treat!
Somehow we've lived 5 mins from this amazing museum for years and havent been until now. It was well worth the wait. Although it's designed for younger children I found myself nostalgic and maybe a little to eager to join in on the fun with my daughter. This place is a true treasure and our 18 month old was blown away. Definitely going back!
Great place for the kids and parents. Got a 4 museum membership too! Updated 20221123 @1758 My kids easily spend two hours here. Great facility that accommodates kids of all ages. At 1030 and again at 1430 there are science experiments downstairs. The staff has been awesome each time we have been there.
Amazing fun and incredibly helpful staff for a great price. The exhibits are interesting and definitely tailored to the younger kids in the family but very entertaining. Our kids love the physics demos and of course the tree house.
