Discovery World Reviews & Ratings

  • This was an amazing venue for the fundraiser I attended. Discovery World extends out into Lake Michigan, making it an incredibly special place to hold an event. The food was delicious from their kitchen and they did a wonderful job serving 550 dinners and fitting those people into their hall. On a nice summer day, there is a beautiful outside area to enjoy with a gorgeous view of Lake Michigan. This was fancy, elegant, fun and a great place for anyone to learn and discover.

  • This place is so fun. Everything here is amazing (aquarium, exhibits, science, technology, brain games...). I had a great time at this museum. I even went to the balcony and enjoyed a spectacular view and took some great pictures (I don't know if that is allowed but I did it anyway!). The staff was so kind and helpful. I highly recommend this museum to anyone visiting Mil town especially those with kids. Believe me, you'll discover the world at Discovery World!

  • Great place for both kids and adults. Aquarium is first class! Can touch sting rays and sturgeon fish. Many interactive learning exhibits for all ages. Plenty of restrooms. Underground parking garage for up to 200 cars - cost is reasonable for Milwaukee area.

  • For our wedding anniversary, my wife and I took advantage of visiting Discovery World for the first time. We were not disappointed. We started out by paying for admission and were given senior discounts. Included in my admission was still another discount - that of being a military veteran.We were then given a few minutes of discussion by the person checking us in (he had the time since nobody was behind us). He explained the many things we could take advantage of at Discovery World.So off we went to the aquarium side and spent a good amount of time on the several floors of displays. Some, were absolutely amazing in size and the variety of fish was incredible. There were exhibits where things like rays or sand dollars (?) could actually be touched by people in their exhibit. We met several people who worked at Discovery World and everyone was friendly and helpful and full of information. Nice! We especially like the huge display of the Great Lakes. In a large room was this display of the five lakes, to scale and with large cities in the appropriate locations. There were numerous animal displays around the larger display. While it was nice to see this large exhibit, one should take advantage of going half way up a staircase and look back down on the display. This will afford you the opportunity to "take it all in".

  • Great exhibits and a lot of fun for kids and adults alike. Unfortunately we were there when they were doing a lot of maintenance so a few of the cooler exhibits were closed but it's still worth it. The aquarium is really nice and a great feature.

  • How do I go about buying tickets as a Christmas gift? Is this possible online or do I have to come there to purchase? Can the tickets be open ended for the recipients to use anytime?

    • Discovery World has a great lineup of special Christmas events like Visit With Santa. I am not very sure if you can gift specific tickets, but you certainly can gift Memberships which can be used for free admission and program discounts. For detailed information regarding this, consider calling them on Discovery World contact number  1-4147659966.
