I have been going to the Discovery Center for around 20 years. They rarely have new exhibits. Nothing new or exciting.

Very big with a lot of exhibits. Hands on and great for kids and adults. But since it's hands on it feels a little dirty. Some exhibits don't work but overall it's a lot of fun.

Great hands on science center in downtown Boise. A large amount of fixed exhibits with a rotating feature exhibit that changes several times each year. Located next to the park is highly recommended you make a day of your trip and pack a lunch, hit the park and maybe the zoo afterwards.

This is one of the few places that we can bring our kids and have fun all day. It's the perfect place for a fun family outing.
