Discovery Museums

Lonely Planet review

The Discovery Museums consist of two unique side-by-side museums – both great for children. Occupying an old Victorian house, the Children’s Museum (adult & child/senior $9/8; 9am-4:30pm Tue-Sun) invites kids to play make-believe, cooking up some eats in a bite-size diner, hunting for wildlife on safari, conducting a toy train and more. The Science Museum (adult & child/under 5yr $9/5; 1-4:30pm Tue, Thu & Fri, 1-6pm Wed, 9am-4:30pm Sat & Sun) is for slightly older kids, but it’s equally playful with hands-on exhibits such as earth science and an inventor’s workshop. You can get admission to both museums for $13/12 per adult or child/senior.
