Discovery Cube LA: 10 Awesome Exhibits Your Kids Will Love

Inspire. Educate. Impact.

Discovery Cube is encouraging young minds to become productive, problem solving members of the community by teaching healthy and eco-friendly learning through science, math, technology, STEM, engineering and play!

When we heard that Discovery Cube Los Angeles had recently opened up we were thrilled to take the 15 minute trip (from Burbank) to come explore LA's newest children's museum. We are so glad we did! Having a museum just for youth in the San Fernando Valley means a lot to us "Valley" moms.  Discovery Cube LA is a kid's dream place to run around, learn new things, and touch EVERYTHING! With science-based programs and exhibits you will feel like they just spent a day at a science fair. It's a parents dream too because it is inexpensive, (just $10) it's all enclosed so it's easy to keep an eye on your kids, and it's filled with cool educational facts and exhibits to encourage hands-on learning.


Discovery Cube LA is the perfect place to bring your children this summer, they even have 2 new exhibits featuring Clifford and Animal Grossology. Stimulate those young minds while they are on summer vacation with fun learning. From the moment my daughter and her friends stepped foot into the museum they were off and running. There is so much for them to see, do, and experience. It was a wonderful way to spend a summer day with the family. If you haven't been yet, you should definitely put it on your list of places to take the kids this summer! And when you go, make sure to check out these 10 fun things!


10 awesome exhibits not-to-miss at the Discovery Cube Los Angeles


1. Adventures with Clifford the Big Red Dog
Clifford's exhibit transports you to the world of Clifford, Emily Elizabeth, and all the residents of Birdwell Island. When exploring the exhibit, you will encounter the people and places that make up Clifford’s world! (Adventures with Clifford is a temporary exhibit is just for summer.)

2. Animal Grossology
Ever wonder why dogs sniff each other’s rear ends, why cows need four stomachs to digest their food, or why cats spit up hair balls? You can find out the answers to all these "gross" questions and more! (Animal Grossology is a temporary exhibit is just for summer.)

3. LA Kings Science of Hockey
The Science of Hockey (created in association with the LA Kings) is one of the most technically advanced sports-themed exhibits in the world. The permanent destination attraction provides science and hockey fans with exclusive access to the sport and the team, while exploring the fascinating math and science behind the game.

4. Helicopter Tour
Climb aboard our helicopter simulator and take to the skies above Los Angeles. Soar over California and follow the 300-mile journey of the L.A. aqueduct then dive beneath the City and view the vast water system below! Hold on tight and get the best view of California you have ever seen.

5. Discovery Market
Grab your cart, aim your scanner and zoom through the aisles in this exciting grocery store game. Learn the importance of making healthy and Earth-friendly choices when you shop. Are you up for the challenge?

6. Race to Zero Waste
The first one to zero wins! Zero waste, that is. Race against others to correctly sort recyclables and other waste to divert trash from our landfills.

7. Planetary Research Station
View the earth on a suspended, animated globe from a completely unique vantage point. Explore weather patterns, observe historic storms and relive catastrophic earthquakes. It’s a view of Earth you’ve never seen before.

8. Inspector Training Course
Is your house earthquake proof and energy efficient? Find out when you strap on an inspector belt and master the skills of a home inspector using a touch screen tablet. This competitive scavenger-hunt game takes you inside a California home and puts you to the test!

9. Park Science / Rock Climbing Wall
Explore Discovery Cube’s own backyard by taking a virtual trek through the Hansen Dam Recreation Area, withstanding 70 mph Santa Ana winds, or climbing a rock wall.

10. Aquavator
Descend deep into the earth’s crust in a specialized elevator and view the geological layers while learning the science behind underground water aquifers. Make sure to keep an eye out for the mythical Megalodon on your trip!

All that learning can make a kid hungry, lucky for you they have BEAN SPROUTS, a cafe at the entrance of the museum. Check out it's healthy kid-friendly menu HERE.
