Children's Discovery Museum Of San Jose, San Jose Reviews - Write a Review
Great for kids 6 months to 5 years. We saw one older kid there who was probably too big, but he helped engage some younger ones in imaginative play. Honestly, this museum had a lot to offer. The outdoor Bill's backyard was very attractive. Bay area Discovery museum in SF/Sausalito has a similar vibe. The first 5 Wonder room play area with sensory exhibits and curated art activities was a big draw. Worth a visit and I would consider a yearling membership if we lived locally. We will be back because our 3.5 year old loved all four hours we spent there.
Great for children's day out. Best part is that the place has sections for all age groups. My 3 year old daughter had a great time. Entry fee $15 per head (children and adults) is a little high, specially if you plan to go frequently. Having a membership is probably better in such cases. Recommended for parents in and around the bay area. The place doesn't have a parking. There's a private parking lot just opposite which charges $7 flat and accepts cash only.
A great place for kids to experience hands-on exploration of science or just to play. One day is not enough to do it all especially when your kids want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen and water play. I recommend bringing extra clothes and shoes in case if they get soaked. The membership is worth it, tax deductible and an awesome go-to place when school is off. Great for all ages - including infants and adults!
Our 3 year old grandson loves the fire truck, ambulance, and thirdly the antique car. We have an annual membership , which has paid for itself over and over again. We try to visit weekly or bi-weekly. Our Grandson especially loves the new outdoor “ Biily’s Backyard”, where he climbs the trees and slides down slides,builds huts with other children. Great experience overall.
My almost two year old loves coming here, if no other reason than to run up and down the stairs and play in the water area. The new Bill's Backyard area is a nice addition, almost like an outside playground and picnic area. I think my biggest two drawbacks are that we visited about a month ago and considered a membership, but decided against it and then they raised the prices a couple weeks ago, making the basic membership nearly the cost of the next level up and parking. I made a comment about the price increase and was told they were telling everyone. Unfortunately, we did not get the memo when we had visited and the two free tickets they added with the increase likely won't get used because most of our friends have older children and our families are not in the area and we tend to visit them more than they visit us. There's also not really much free parking available and the parking lots are across the street, near a freeway exit, which isn't the preferred place when you have a young toddler. The museum itself gets 5 stars though.
