Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Families in the Valley have a new place to take their kids to have fun and learn at the same time.

Saturday was the grand opening of the DISCOVERY Children's Museum at Symphony Park.

The brand new three-story, 58,000-square foot facility features nine exhibit galleries.

The project was seven years in the making and is open to the public every day of the week.

"We are really trying to take subject matter such as the arts and sciences and make them a learning experience, but do it in a way that's hands-on learning and it's a lot of fun," said Linda Quinn, museum CEO.

Museum-goers can also visit the Discover George Washington traveling exhibit with authentic items on display through May 15.

The DISCOVERY Children's Museum is located at 360 Promenade Place in Las Vegas.
