I had been to the Discovery Place Nature museum over near freedom park and while it was really small, it was a lot of fun. They have a small but really nice butterfly garden.
Anyway, I totally forgot today was Labor Day.. and when I got there, they had Tryon blocked off through the entire uptown area.. There was a Labor Day Parade…
Eventually I found the paid parking for Discovery Place, $12.00 in case you are wondering… And I made my way into the museum.
The price for the museum plus the T-Rex exhibit was $20.00. The place looked huge so I figured it was money well spent.
It’s not that huge…
They have a Rainforest.. I saw the 2 large Redfoot Tortoises.. And a Macaw. 🙄
A lot of things are “kid focused”, which is to be expected.
The T-Rex was pretty impressive even though the exhibit wasn’t…. They are truly enormous..
After I left the exhibit, I went to the medical science area. Really cool stuff there.
So, was it worth $32.00? Depends.. I did want to see Discovery Place.. and the T-Rex exhibit. Will I go back? Doubtful.
