Children's Discovery Center
Mar 30, 2014 by: Sierra M from Johnstown, Pennsylvania
We did this as a side stop for our daughter. There were lots of exhibits in a fairly small area and reminded me of a classroom set up. The center is better suited for older children who are interested in science and know how to read. There is a really neat 15 foot 'Titanic' replica in the transportation exhibit as well as a life-size small airplane cockpit that the kids liked to climb and play in. I preferred looking and reading about the Hagerstown Civil War history. For those with toddlers, there is a large toddler play area to entertain them within the center. Pricing was $7 adults, $5 kids and there are starting a program for military families to enter for free after Memorial Day Weekend 2014.
Butterflies, Learning is a Great Thing

This is the second time we visited the Discovery Station at Hagerstown. We loved the butterfly lecture by Dave Kaplan. Each time I go there, I learn something. Very interactive, a lot of hands on exhibits all geared at children and family participation. There is a wonderful Titantic exhibit with a scaled model built by Norman Little. So many things to see. The second floor, we still have to finish. So many wonderful things to do and see. The guide Brittany is great with the clients, making everyone, feel welcome and making sure families have a great experience. Would suggest this, wonderful time.
Museum of note

12,000 visitors a year enjoy the extensive interactive exhibits at Discovery Station in Hagerstown. A learning experience for all ages.
Fun place for the little ones
Aug 12, 2013 by: Posttime from Mt Holly
We were in the area from out of town, so we stopped in with our 10 year old grandaughter, and she enjoyed it. I do not think the 11 or 12 yr. olds would appreciate it, but ten and under is a good age to have fun there. We spend 1-1/2 hrs taking our time and enjoying their interactive displays and fun facts. I would not suggest driving far to get there, but if you are in Hagerstown with the small ones, definitely stop in. Staff were very friendly, and place is very clean, and admission cost is small, and well worth it.

The museum is fun, but it was hard to keep my 2 and 5 year old entertained during our visit. There was a lot of reading involved. However, older children might enjoy the exhibits a bit more especially those who are interested in agricultural things.
