Took my two Grandsons (age 4 & 7) to the Discovery center two weeks ago. They had a great time and it was educational at the same time. I even had fun.

A old time learning center that has been in the business of educating the young and old for generations ... No expensive hype or prices just old school 🏫 show and tell...

The Discovery Center has gotten better and better over the years. You can experience both life science and physical science exhibits and activities.

I wanted to find something for the kids to do on Christmas Eve & "discovered" The Discovery Center... & what a fantastic gem of a museum! This non-profit runs on a limited budget & the inexpensive admission prices (children: free for under 2 YO, $8 for 3-18 YO; adults: $6 for 18-64 YO; seniors: $5 for 65+; Veterans & active military: free) are more than fair. All programs & daily operations are funded through daily admissions, donations, field trips, & their gift shop.

Exploring this hands-on science center through my kids' viewpoint, there's a lot of fun things to do in each jam packed station, animals to see & touch, & play structures to get their wiggles out. I think it pretty much hits their mission right on the nose -- providing a hands-on learning experience to spark children's passion, curiosity, & wonder for the environment & physical sciences, & being a valuable resource for the community who want their children to develop an interest, knowledge & excitement in S.T.E.A.M. subjects.

Speaking with Isaías, Creative Project Manager... he's filled with ideas for The Discovery Center; a wish to build on a nearby site to house the only other space station replica. I met Patricia, a most genuine, knowledgeable, & friendly Animal Care Assistant. She introduced Elsa (bearded dragon) to the kids, explained her habitat & livelihood in a way that's easy to understand & "wow" the them. We also met Sweetpea, a cuddly & fast little black bunny; Bowser (possibly 25 YO tortoise that will outlive us all) who loves bananas & eating the fallen leaves. Quite a few of animal friends are named after Disney (Elsa & Anna), video game (Bowser), or story (Tiny Tim) characters. ^-^ There's a koi pond leading up to the Center's entrance filled with gorgeous koi, mosquitofish, & a couple of turtles.

There's a generous library corner for families to read about animals, science, & the like. The nearby train table was basic but more than enough to entertain my Thomas the Train-loving son. The Build Exhibit allowed him to use his imagination & just create with building blocks & magnetic tiles. The Fire Exhibit may seem basic, but it allowed the kids to play pretend firefighters; their uncle & cousin are firefighters so they both loved this. H liked the Pitman Farms Exhibit so she can gather eggs like at her uncle's except there's no mean hen to peck at her when she nabs the eggs. ;-) Learn about gravity, interference, Laws of Motion, Hyperbolic Slot, Air Track, etc. at the Physics Exhibit.

Augmented Reality Sandbox has 3 dimensional camera measuring the sand & sending the info to computer to create topography map that's projected on top of the sand. Air Track is a scientific device to study motion in a low friction environment; H just loved playing with & catching the scarves. A color-coded piano with color-coded music sheets allows musically-challenged to play a simple symphony. A large version of the Operation game... I sucked at the small version as well as the adult-size version.

Near the end of our visit, I ran into Lori, Executive Director, while I was taking notes for this review. I shared how I found the Center, talked about her awesome team, & what a great time my kids were having.

As a parent, I'm always concerned about germs & the exhibits/stations could use some sanitizing, which may be a challenge with their small operations team; there a strategic hand sanitizers located throughout the Center for the germaphobes like me.

The kids went outside one last time to get their wiggles out on the play structures. They tried to prolong their visit even after the Center's closed, but Patricia was still in the process of lock-up so they were able to play a little longer. =)

In spite of its size, the Center offers a lot of stations for your LOs to explore & learn, even adults might learn a thing or two. With limited winter hours, we spent the whole morning here & didn't even make it over to The Deutsch Cactus Garden. This new team is looking to transform The Discovery Center, & THEY NEED YOUR SUPPORT to make that happen. Stay tuned for exciting new changes to this hidden treasure!

WE visited this center last week with our 6 year old.
- This is a small place, about 2hours would do it. Many exhibits are for kids 2-5yrs maybe.
- Outside exhibits are not in shade and the hot weather makes it near impossible to be out for long;
- The cactus garden is nice
- I would rate it 3.5 stars; no higher
- The price to enter is much higher than the value it provides

A little outdated and not very clean. But educational! Took lots of great pictures. Defiantly have the kids feed the bugs to the reptiles! Cost a little steep in relation to quality!

Wir waren mit unseren beiden Söhnen (3&5) rund dreieinhalb Stunden im kleinen Mitmach-Museum von Fresno. Klar, ein paar Exponate waren defekt, aber dennoch gab es genug zu entdecken. Draußen gab es ganz neue Klettergerüste, eine neue Picknick-Ecke und unter der Woche fast alles für uns alleine. Aber auch wenn andere Kinder in der gleichen Ecke spielen wollen, reicht das Angebot. Für Kinder (3-17) kostet es 8, für Erwachsene 6 Dollar. Insgesamt sehr gut investiert!

We took three young girls here, aged between 4 and 6. They lasted just over an hour when we expected them to go for at least two. The centre needs some TLC. A shortage of staff is affecting the overall operation. The microscopes could not be focussed. Other displays simply were not working. Special thanks to one of the staff who walked among the young people with a beautiful corn snake.

Although I had reviewed about The Discovery Center before (one of our family's favorite places in town) but I definitely have to review one more time to praise the newly renovated Discovery Center for many new, interesting exhibits and activities that were added during March. Our family has been a member of the place for the last several years and always enjoy our time inside the museum, at the little pond, at the playground, at the dino dig area and around all their wonderful gardens. There are so many things to do at The Discovery Center that make it a great destination for children to explore during free months of summer and of course year around if possible.
