The Discovery Center of Idaho is a great place to learn about science in a fun, hands-on environment. While some areas are a permanent exhibit, the center has special interest exhibits that change every few weeks or months depending on the exhibit. Makes a great educational day for a family outing or a school field trip. Large groups may call ahead of time and schedule a time to visit that will include a lesson and demonstration from one of the staff. Very educational and fun for all ages.

The Discovery Center of Idaho is a perfect place with something for children of all ages! They have special exhibits throughout the year dealing with science for older children, but younger children also enjoy seeing and participating in the exhibits even if they don't completely understand them. The exhibits are interactive, which is really fun for the kids to try new things. They have areas all throughout the center where kids can "test" science and learn about scientific theories. There are areas in the back of the center for smaller children....like a shopping center where they can shop for their own groceries using lists & money, then check out as a cashier. Things like a dental area for kids to learn about the dentist and sensory areas are also very popular. They are reasonably priced for admission, and have season passes available as well as certain days throughout the year of discount days. It is a wonderful place to go on a rainy day or when school is out.

you will want to come again and again to the discovery center.
every few months, they have different displays. ranging from dinosaurs (with huge replicas) to the weather to human body, you will learn a lot on your trip here. and the kids will have lots of fun too.
a family membership for the year is a must have!

Discovery Center of Idaho is located in the heart of downtown Boise. It is full of scientific discoveries and hands on learning of how something works. Excellent displays and the employees are very knowledgable. The kids get hands on experience and they love it! Fairly priced, get passes if you live in the area because you will want to go back. Also within walking distance is Boise Zoo, Museum, Arts Center, Library, Trolley Station.

The Discovery center is an absolute blast for the kids. They have a little pretend grocery store that my son can't get enough of. Everything in the place is kid proof so it is a great place to turn them loose and not have to worry about what you are going to have to buy if/when they break it. The place is just a educational as it is fun. Better just buy the season pass as your kids will want to return again and again.

My children love to go here because they know it is kid friendly and they can have a good time without worring about breaking anything. I like it because while they are having fun they are learning new and interesting facts.

PROS: Very kid friendly.
CONS:

I love going to this place, they have hundreds of hands on displays for kids and adult of all ages. In the back they have a little grocery shopping pretend area that is perfect for the younger kids.
Each month or so they have a different main display so it keeps it new.

You and the kids will all have a blast at the Discovery Center. There are lots of hands-on activities that illustrate science topics and entertain at the same time. When you're done there you can walk across the bridge to the adjacent park and playground, and even ride the paddle boats around the lake if you like.

My 2 and 4 year olds love this place and so do my parents. The Discovery Center is a big city science center in the heart of Boise. Go get the season pass because you are going to want to return again and again! My kids never tire of the bubbles or the grocery store and the heredity test and bed of nails will catch any adults attention. A must see for anyone living in or visiting Boise.
