Recommendations

We love the Discovery Centre!, An Eventective User from Fredericton, NB

Our family comes to Halifax every few years to visit family and we ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS make time to go to the Discovery Centre! They have something new every time we come, and I see they change over exhibits so often, we miss some while we're gone - what a shame! My kids (four of them) have such different interests but they can all find something to enjoy at Discovery Centre. Can't wait for our next trip! I've also seen that they now host Birthday Parties, Corporate Parties and that type of event. Since the kids love it so much I might plan my next business dinner there!
