We have been hearing about the newly designed Discovery Children's Museum housed in the same area as the legendary Smith Center in downtown Las Vegas. Rained out from the pool again, a friend and I decided to load up the kids and finally check it out. It was amazing!
Discovery is $12.00 per person (ages 1 to 99) for tickets or you can purchase an annual membership. The museum is comprised of 3 floors of entertaining and educational exhibits for all ages including us old folks! Our little ones loved the animal sound wall in the toddler room and the puppet show on the first floor (we skipped the water room till the end...).
We followed this down to floor two and lost another good hour to games about nutrition and a huge area focused on what kids want to be when they grow up. Focus included a mechanic garage, airport baggage processing, fully functional grocery store with groceries and cashier stations, and a veterinarian office.
The kids and the parents started to get tired after three amazing hours and started to head towards the exit. Ooops, we forgot the water room! The kids jetted towards the water like it was chocolate. This room is truly designed to capture the hearts and minds of kids of all heights.
