Visiting Discovery Place Museum
When we went to Charlotte, North Carolina last month were looking for something to do with the kids indoors because it was rainy outside and came across Discovery Place Museum. There was so much to do and see there for the kids (and even some the adults can participate in)!
It’s about inspiring innovators and engineers of the future to experiment and learn. The kids had so much fun exploring the different sections of the museum. The Kids Science Center had a lot of hands-on things that little ones can enjoy
The water table (above) shows kids how water moves and they fill and/or pour water to make boats move, there are wheels to spin as well as water ways they can build.
There was a spot here to build cars and then race them down a ramp! It was fun to see the creativity in building a car that both my kids and other had. At one point one of the workers had come over and was putting away some of the pieces that had been left out and then she built one with my son. He looks at me and says “Mommy I gonna play with her, ok?” as if to say I could go away…lol It’s a little early for that, isn’t it?
This was definitely one of the favorite sections!
On our way to the next section, we got to pet a baby hedgehog! So cool!!
At the Explore More Life exhibit, we got to touch various sea creatures.
At first, the kids were hesitant to do it but then once they warmed up to the idea it was hard to get them to leave!
Another favorite was the aquarium and waters of life exhibit!
The Cool Stuff Exhibit was one of our favorites. There was so much to see and do, we spent alot of time there. In this exhibit, you can see strange motions and weird happenings! You can even lay on a bed of 5,000 nails and not be harmed!
The kids had fun with the hydraulic push contest!
My kids are very into building things. This exhibit was right up their ally. Creating building sketches, setting up your own construction sites next to wonders such as the Eiffel Tower or Transamerica Pyramid. Kids can also channel their inner survivalist and create a shelter using pvc pipe and post!
All of these are just a small portion of what you can do and see at the Discovery Place Museum! If you are in the area you should definitely stop in and check it out! It is easily somewhere the day could be spent!
