Where are we going today?

Fancy spending the day at a super fun place where kids can discover, learn, create and have fun all at the same time?

Welcome to Discovery Place KIDS in Huntersville, North Carolina!

Discovery Place KIDS provides extraordinary and rich play experiences that value imagination, fun and learning. With live animal exhibits, butterfly and insect exhibits, interactive galleries and so much more, you need to allow most of the day for this.

The exhibits are themed around the small town, and each of the exhibits are designed specifically to build confidence, test skills, and learn through play. The I CAN series is a great experience for kids where they can learn that...they CAN! They can do anything!

I CAN create lets their creative juices flowing as they celebrate art and imagination, and gives them a chance to express themselves however they want! I CAN Be Healthy encourage nutrition and exercise, which we know is important!

I CAN Grow is designed for those smallest of active minds, where the activities here are perfect to develop and stimulate those up to 36 months, and then of course they can all head to the Town Center - the hub of all the energy and activities!

Think a museum is just exhibits? Think again! Discovery Place KIDS have a range of fun shows too! From puppet shows, story time, demonstrations and science shows...there is so much to learn!

So if you are wanting an educational and fun day out with the kids - Discovery Place KIDS is where you will want to head!

    AWESOME! That's all that really needs to be said. We are new to the area and new to being grandparents; it is such a wonderful place to take our grandchild (soon to be children). There are such a good variety of activities - sure to please children at all ages.....We will definitely keep purchasing the yearly pass.

    I will start by saying if I was a kid this place would have 5 stars. From an adult stand point not so much. Chuck E Cheese has better security system set up than this place. It is very crowded and easy to lose site of the kids if you are not 100% focused on your kids. There is only one entrance and exit but it is not watched and open so anyone could walk right out or in. There were only 2 people at a front desk sitting taking money. Which gets me to my next point it was $8 for kids and adults and all the adults can do is watch the kids play. It...Read More

    My daughter is 4 and she had a blast! She loved the grocery store and the cafe, but her favorite of all was the stage and theater where she got to put in a show! Great for young kids.

    I am so incredibly grateful they opened this new location! Our 4yo daughter, Elizabeth, can play for HOURS and exhaust herself, while we enjoy watching and relax a bit. Great variety of exhibits and different areas for them to play, experiment, and try things out. Our annual membership was the best value ever - we got our money's worth in the first weekend it was open! :-)

It was very silly to make them pay full price. The kids were unable to learn anything due to the high volume of people. Everything was a giant play ground kipping there attention for a few minutes then they would move on to something new.
