Discovery Place Nature

Awesome place to take the kids. Little on the small side but you can get a few hours out of it easily. There's exhibits inside and a more.. 'natural' play area outside, my boy loved it. If I recall there is a trail you can access from the parking lot that leads to a park / lake. Would 100% go back.
It was and amazing experience here!! We never knew we'd enjoy so much with the insects!! And we were there when they let the butterflies out when they're out of there cocoon! It was so fascinating and memorable.. we had so much fun!
We had a good time here. The highlight was the planetarium, which was very informative and entertaining. I took one star because many of the exhibits were empty and we were hoping for more of an interactive experience. But, I would go again. Expect to spend between 1 and 2 hours here. Good for children younger than 10.

Such a lovely time! Very affordable way to spend the afternoon. The exhibits were smaller and more manageable than some larger kids museums. We got to get much more up close and personal!
Great place for a toddler. There are not a lot of exhibits but that makes it less overwhelming for smaller children. They brought out a tortoise for the children to see. They also did a question and answer while viewing the tortoise. My 2 yr old granddaughter really enjoyed it. Not sure about cost as my son has a family package plan.
