    Boonshoft Museum of "Discovery"

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Not much to discover here, at least not for adults. This is more like a playground than a real museum. There is a small aquarium, and lots of other things involving water. Recommended only for those younger than 12.

    Unique Suggestions: Let the kids enjoy it. The younger ones might have some fun.

    Fun Alternatives: The other attractions in Dayton are a lot better.

    If you have kids this would be a great place, however its billed as a Natural History Museum. In fact it's an overgrown indoor playground. Not the place for any serious science exhibits for adults.
