AOL Travel Editor’s Review

It’s geared toward children, but Discovery Place brings out the kid in all of us. Charlotte's only children's museum, this interactive attraction features hands-on activities and exhibits that explore various fields of science. Check the schedule for the daily shows and demonstrations. Our favorite stops are World Alive, where you can trek through a "rainforest" from a swinging bridge; and the giant human eyeball walk-through replica. Discovery Place just underwent a massive renovation, and their new aquarium is twice the size of the old one. The aquarium tanks house fish and the ever-popular stingrays. Check out the 3D Theatre and OMNIMAX, an IMAX theater and planetarium. Museum admission is $12 for adults and $9 for children. Kiddos under 2 are admitted free. Museum + IMAX combo tickets are $18 for adults and $14 for kids.
