Great place for the kids to get some energy out and learn along the way, just be warned, in my experience the place is always packed. Very tough getting around and having fun with your kid from a parents perspective.

Really neat place to take a kid, but sometimes it's a bit hectic and overcrowded. Lots of interactive areas, special quieter area for toddlers. Some wear and tear showing in places, but pretty clean.

We love the Garden State Discovery Museum! They have the best staff and go far beyond typical customer service to make our experiences so much fun for my kids! We have had a few parties there over the years, and they have been fun for all ages. We absolutely love the hands-on exhibits especially the new Cooper exhibit, California Pizza Kitchen, Dinosaurium and Little Discoveries are our favorites. We also love being museum members and we receive discounts in the Discovermore Toy Store-Gift shop and other local businesses.

Kids had a great time, but a lot of things were not working or missing pieces. And no one was around to help. I give it 4 stars because I'm thinking it might have to do with the time we got there. It was 3 hours before closing so maybe we will go again but earlier in the day.

After seeing some of the negative reviews here (and being skeptical that this could ever stack up to Please Touch), I can vouch that this is such an awesome place for the 8 and under crowd and like it better than PTM. My 20 month old had a ball here - so much to do that we didn't see it all in the 7 hours that we stayed - so good that we completely skipped nap time. Like another reviewer said, it's easier to keep track of your child(ren) because it's all one floor. The rooms are huge with plenty of different things to do in each room (the dinosaur digging exhibit has a playhouse, a faux dinosaur-dig sandbox and more - the farm has a barn with stalls and a loft as well as a farmhouse and pig sty ball pit, etc.). If you have the PTM annual membership, an adult and child will only cost $14.

Took my 3 yr old there on a rainy day. Did not look like much from the outside. Once inside and starting to explore, my kid was completely hooked. She was just old enough to understand the different settings which were mock ups of different themes. A diner, pizza parlor, fishing ship, construction area, grocer stand, rock climbing wall, ice hockey rink....etc, etc, just a few of the setups. What was so special about these places. Nothing really, except that they were designed to allow your kid to actually be "hands on", imitating actual work staff or doing things they normally would be seeing adults doing. So I go to sit at a pizza joint and my kid stood behind the counter and took my order, prepared my pizza, cooked it, served it. .rung it up on a register...all make believe of course...but it took none of the fun out of it for her. In fact, there were lots of kids there doing the same thing so it was very easy for her to go from one place to the next and just joining the next group that was playing at running a diner or fishing from the side of a boat (for plastic fish with hooked rings using wooden fishing poles) or shooting goals on a hockey rink with other players. It truly lets the kids imagine the real thing as everything was scaled down for them, including a vets office, doctors, office, uniforms they could don while making "food" (plastic versions which were very authentic and fun). Give this place a try. We drove almost an hour but enjoyed every minute. Stayed almost 5 hours there.
