What is there to do?

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!
