About the Discovery Museums

The Discovery Museums mission: to inspire enduring curiosity and love of learning. Here, children discover open-ended, interactive exhibits that encourage exploration and imagination.

The Discovery Museums is comprised of two buildings on our 4-plus acre campus. At the Children's Discovery Museum, younger children (toddlers through early grades) learn while they play. At the Science Discovery Museum, children and adults of all ages explore scientific concepts and hands-on creativity.

The Discovery Museums offers exciting programs for all ages.
