The Discovery Children's Museum recently relocated to Symphony Park in Las Vegas in March 2013, and with it came a lot of changes and updates. Take a tour and feast your senses on three stories of 9 fun-filled exhibits, including a water works and an invention station. If you're traveling over a birthday, this is a great party stop complete with an exceptional staff that will help you iron out all the details. And if you're a Vegas local, the museum caters to schools and students by offering exclusive field trip packages as well as a Discovery on Wheels activity bus that can visit classrooms and home schools.
Things to Do
- Patents Pending: This invention station gives kids and their families the opportunity to test their best scientific theories; try your hand at the Air Tower and the Quake Proof and see if your ideas can hold up!
- Solve It! Ancient City: If you've ever wanted to be an archaeologist, here's your chance; get your hands dirty as you dig up and date ancient coins, identify different bones, and learn about how to sort and date all sorts of archaeological evidence
- Toddler Town: Perfect for the little ones! Become a train conductor and learn about Nevada's local wildlife, all while climbing, playing, and exploring. Even those who can't walk yet can enjoy the Crawl Zone, a perfect place for the littlest ones to still experience and learn
- Water World: A favorite in every science museum, splish and splash around lock systems and pipes while you learn about the Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, and the Bypass Bridge
