It's a really great places with plenty of fun stuff to do. IF YOU ARE A CHILD. If you don't have children it's not for you. BUT the staff was wonderful and very helpful (as opposed to what is stated in the previous comment!)

Activities GREAT. Staff was not so friendly

Very disappointed at how unfriendly some of the staff was, especially since this is a kids place. The activities are absolutely great though! :)

Imax/Queen City Tours and Travel

The Imax/Omnimax Theater at Discovery Place is a fun way to spend an afternoon or evening watching movies and films on a 50-foot screen. See and learn more about Discovery Place and over 75 other sites on Charlotte's Longest-Running Daily City Tour presented by Queen City Tours and Travel!

Great place to learn

Love Discovery Place and the Omni Max Theater. The setting is perfect for young and old alike. Parking could be better.

Upgrade to 3D, Please!

This is the only IMAX that I've ever been to that I have NOT fully enjoyed. It cost about $17,000 to upgrade to 3D and that experience is The Best. Our family would be there for every 3D show. Most theatres with this technology charge more for ticket prices to defer the cost which is alright because the 3D experience is awesome.
Some movies are filmed for the 3D effect and they are kind of boring shown 2D (exp: Sharks 3D has a greater effect than the 2D version shown at Omnimax).
I hope they get with the times soon because it's sad to seen smaller cities making quicker technological advances. Charlotte is a major city that should have modern technology, especially as this Omnimax is affiliated with a SCIENCE center.

Imax theatre

Although I love viewing Imax films, and have never failed to enjoy any film I've seen here, I agree with
appstate98, re: A Night At The Museum. I don't understand why this film was distributed as both flat screen and Imax. The copy I viewed was clearly NOT Imax. Don't waste your money on this one as Imax. See it on a flat screen. On Imax it is as stretched as a Mercator map with poor depth-of-field and many out-of-focus spots. Could the theatre have been showing a copy intended for flat screen use? This is my first complaint as to the quality of an Imax movie in probably 20 films. Overall, Imax films are worth the price of admission, but this one is a stinker.

Don't go to watch a movie- the picture quality is horrible!!!

Horrible movie experience. We watched Night at the Museum. The film was not formatted correctly and it was stretched and out of zoom.

Superb Learning

I have visited this place at least 4 times and I love each time I went. Excellent learning projects for all ages. Excellent classes that increases your information about the habitat and animals. Excellent eating area and clean. Would love to see an additional place for students to create their own projects or re-create projects on hand to inhance learning.
