Great Kid Day
Feb 10, 2014 by: lmfields from Salisbury
Took grandkids to Planetarium exhibit. We live nearby and go whenever they have a kid event. Very nice attraction for kids. Kids like the touch tank. Reptiles Alive is a great learning experience so we always go when that is scheduled at the Discovery Center. Very nice gift shop.

First time visitor. The exhibits were well designed and a good representation of the eastern shore. I enjoyed the aquarium the most. I learned of a couple of types of snakes and mammals I did not know existed. The gift shop has some unique pieces.
A glimpse of history
Oct 05, 2013 by: ErnieK937 from Kennett Square, Pennsylvania
Although modest in size, the Discovery Center provides a good introduction to the human and natural history of this land of marshes, streams, and bays. The native Lenapes, the early European settlers, the watermen, the oystermen, the fishermen, and their various watercrafts are featured--ranging from a dugout canoe, to skipjacks, to small steamships that plied the Chesapeake. A good place to have a couple of interesting hours.
Unexpectedly Wonderful Treat!

We stumbled across the Delmarva Discovery Center when we were touring the downtown area of Pocomoke. My family used to visit our grandparents in Pocomoke each year but we hadn't been down in years. We decided to visit the musuem to allow my duaghter the opportunity to connect with the area as well. We were wonderfully surprised by the excellent exhibits and the wealth of information that they contained. I will definately come back again to visit some of the external exhibits that weren't open on Monday. This was a very special treat that you should not miss when in the area.
Nice place to take a child

We had a nice time meeting Bernard the racer snake and completing a snake craft. We liked the steamboat display and learning about the oyster industry. My daughter loved the big gopher dam and climbing inside. The sailboat with wind at the end was neat too.
