A Universe of Knowledge and Fun in Charlotte


It’s impossible to learn all that this universe has to offer, but that’s half of the fun of science: facts are always changing and innovations are ever growing because of it. Whether you’re a fan of biology, zoology, geology, astronomy, anatomy, or just of science in general, our luxury apartments at Alexan Optimist Park offer the perfect experience right in our Charlotte neighborhood.

The Discovery Place in downtown Charlotte is one of the town’s top museum attractions, featuring half a dozen fun exhibits and an endless supply of wonder and excitement throughout the year. The Science center is located only one mile away from our luxury apartments, a mere five-minute drive, while its sister Nature location is only four miles out on highway 277. Discovery Place Science contains seven fun exhibits suited for all ages, including the child-friendly KidScience exhibit where young minds can play around and expand their growing minds, or the Being Me exhibit that explores the wonders of the human body; Discovery Place Nature, in the meantime, surrounds its explorers in the natural habitat of North Carolina with immersive exhibits like the Butterfly Pavilion and the Paw Paw Nature Trail. The Science center also features labs that cycle throughout the week, giving you a new level of discovery through hands-on experiments. Finally, both attractions offer specialty pricing for large groups, perfect for small birthday parties and large school field trips alike.

Never stop learning about the Universe at Alexan Optimist Park. Make a trip to our Charlotte luxury apartments and the Discovery Place museum this weekend.
