Went to my second YELP! foodie event tonight at the Children's Discovery Museum. Food and drinks galore, left and right, straight ahead and behind us. Downstairs was food, upstairs were drinks...and more food. There was even an ambulance and fire truck on the premises. The food was excellent, and the desserts and chocolates were to die for! Plus, the cool science exhibits added more fun to the night!
The last Yelp event was bigger and more chaotic, so I was glad that this one went so smoothly. There were excellent samples from New Delhi Restaurant (mini samosas), Morocco's Restaurant (lentil beans salad), Crunch Catering (tuna tartar & potato bites), and Dio Deka (Greek food), and others. Throw in some excellent chocolates and mini muffins for sweets, and wash it down with free alcohol and Honest Tea!!!
Can't wait for the next YELP! event!Recommended for:

This is a fun and excellently designed museum created to help kids learn and discover. It's fun for adults too! There's plenty here to entertain, as the building is quite large. You could easily spend a fun-filled day here.Recommended for:

What a super fun place for both kids and adults! Much like the Exploratorium in SF, this museum is full of interactive displays and activities to help kids discover the world around them. They have different exhibits throughout the year which are really interesting for even adults to check out. Love the water works and bubble display downstairs.
For anyone thinking of having a corporate or charity event, this is a great place to host it! There's also an outdoor amphitheater for live music.Recommended for:

we all simply loved this museum, probably went there more than 10 times in the 4 years we lived in the area. great for young kids, doesn't really fit older kids (10+). my kids especially loved the water area and the soap bubbles area, and also the arts & crafts room on the second floor.Recommended for:

It's great to come here on a wet day. There's a fire engine and ambulance (which the kids love to sit in), a wooly mammoth educational exhibit, a wet play area and even a play room for crawlers.Recommended for:

The Children Discovery Museum is really cute.
It offers attractions for little ones. So if it is winter or summer and you are looking for something to do with your child, it is a great place.
They have water play area so don't forget to bring your kid another shirt :)Recommended for:

I used to love this museum as a kid. It's a little more hands-on than the Tech Museum and there's so much fun science and the like to be had there. If you haven't been, wander around the park outside for a while to find the giant Monopoly board. At some point, it held a record for being the largest one. It may still, but don't know for sure. If you have younger kids, it's a fun place to be. If you or people you know are above the age of 11/12, I wouldn't recommend it though. Except that Monopoly board. You're never too old to relive all the family and friend arguments you've had over that game.Recommended for:

Amazing museum for kids in all ages. I came here with my 18 months daughter for the first time and she had a great time. everything is build for small kids and the wide variety of activities is a good reason to come here more often. It's a great solution for a bad weather days but even on nice days you can enjoy the sun in the nice garden they have here.Recommended for:

Children's Discovery Museum in San Jose—23 miles and a 30-minute drive south—is certainly top-of-class among children's museums of the world. Your little one can climb all over a real fire engine, play with gigantic bubbles and water wheels or engage in arts projects.Recommended for:

This place is great! Our three year old love it, he walks around all the different zones and plays for hours, we can easily spend a full day there, open to close, no stopping!

I never went here as a kid so I can't comment how exciting this museum is for its target audience. I do think it could be kind of fun for adults with a young heart. This place is huge. There are 2 stories and many rooms full of interactive displays. It seems like most of the exhibits are geared towards younger kids (5 or below) though. If you are a grown up without kids you probably have much better things to do than visiting a children's museum. If you have little kids in the family this is a good place to spend a day. This museum should provide your younglings with many hours of entertainment.Recommended for:

I used to love this place as a kid. I remember in third grade, I wanted to come here every month! I recently went here for an event, and still thought it was pretty cool =) This is a fun place to take your little cousins to. Fun activities for the kiddies !Recommended for:

There are so many cool things to explore for toddler age to about 6 years old. I loved the toddlers are on the upper floor, the little room with the carousel and the water-play area

Tickets were $10 for ages 1-59 (wide range, I know).
Exhibits were a good range that highlighted tons of experiential and tactile based activities--fantastic for little kiddies. Bob the Builder, Secrets of Circles, Bubbles, etc..... A small food court is available for snacking-pick-me-ups.
I was a little surprised at the size of the museum--a little smaller than I had expected. However, I think it's a great spot for little ones 7 and under. Small enough so that they don't get too tired to walk around the entire museum but large enough to include a multitude of activities to keep them entertained.Recommended for:

During my first nanny job, I took my 8-year-old boy here with his friend and they were bored within the hour! This is a child who loves science, technology, and hands-on projects; he was uninterested very quickly, and I was disappointed that we spent $21 on the three of us for less than an hour of entertainment.
