About The Discovery Museums
The Discovery Museums serve 170,000 visitors annually, with a commitment to informal science education that enhances classroom learning. Our 4.5-acre campus includes the Children’s Discovery Museum, filled with imaginative learning spaces, the Science Discovery Museum, which presents basic science principles using familiar objects, and Discovery Woods, our new inclusively accessible nature playscape and treehouse, which serves as a launching point for outdoor activity and woodland exploration. Visitors leave with curiosity piqued, creativity stoked, and passion for learning ignited. We turn away no child, parent, school group, or agency due to lack of funds; 26% of our audience visit for free or reduced rates.
