Where are we going today?
Vegas isn't all about casinos and bright lights. In fact, there is a place that is ALL about the kids! The Discovery Children's Museum was created for kids to learn through play, and it's pretty awesome!
The museum is filled with hands-on and interactive exhibits that really let kids use their imagination, and their creativity, and develop their senses.
The Summit is an amazing 70 foot tower with 2,200 square feet (covering 3 floors!) and even pinches through the roof! There are climbing structures, slides, as well as interactive science exhibits that can teach kids all about magnets, flights, the earth, energy, and much more!
Those little ones can explore an environmentally friendly city that's filled with businesses and buildings, and actually operates a sa city would! Kids can earn a living (such as drawing and depositing money from a bank), and let's them monitor their eco footprint.
Have little ones in the family? Discovery Children's Museum has you covered! Toddler Town is a desert-themed exhibit JUST for those youngest visitors up to 5 years. They can explore the state's animals, become train engineers, and even try out construction!
The Crawl Zone is perfect for those who have yet to learn to walk, but want to still play with some age appropriate activities
Art lovers can get creative and express themselves at the Young At Art exhibit, and there are problems to be solved at Solve It, where fact finding skills come into play!
Kids fun all round at this Las Vegas children's museum! See - we told you it was all about the kids!

One of the best things to happen to this city. I love taking my son here to learn and play. His favorite is Eco City where he can interact and learn about real jobs. Pack a sack lunch and spend a few hours here!

Went in for Super Hero Day with a friend and her kids. While I am fully impressed with the new facilities, I was not impressed of what was passed off ass being a Super Hero Day. It was super busy and I do not believe the staff was fully prepared for that. It was hard to maneuver around the crowds, no actual "super heroes" were on hand as one would have thought.

We love it and just bought a yearly pass for the family. However why does it close at 4pm on week days? If it stayed open an extra hour or two at night we could go after school and it would be very convenient.

The thought of theme days is pretty attractive, they just fell short on this theme day.
