“inspire the love of learning through the power of play”
Come experience unique hands-on exhibits, classes, and programs that stimulate your imagination and curiosity. A visit to the Children's Discovery Museum located in Uptown Normal, Illinois creates a sense of wonder that excites the love of learning in children of all ages.The Children's Discovery Museum is a different kind of museum -- where touching the exhibits is actually encouraged. The exhibits are designed for kids of any age to touch, climb on, climb into, and even take apart and put back together. It's a liberty kids are seldom afforded in a museum -- or anywhere else!
We stopped for the afternoon on a day of driving. Totally worth the stop. Cute museum, just right sized for an afternoon! Had I realized how adorable the town was I would have planned more time for sure. Lots of food and shops around the museum! Great for the 6 year olds. The 11 year old was pleased but had some bored moments!
We stopped here on our way to Wisconsin from Pennsylvania. It was a much needed kid break our daughter who had been in the car for two days! She just loves it and spent 30 minutes at the water table alone. She loves the dance room on the third floor. Parking was awkward, we had to move our car halfway through.
This is an above average Discovery Museum, particularly when you consider the size of the town. We've taken our grandkids to several and they are every bit as engaged here as they are at some of the bigger, better known museums. Assistants are plentiful and helpful. Enough to keep the kids busy, entertained, and learning for several hours.
