The Discovery Science Place is an affiliate of the American Science Technology Centers (ASTC). Our membership and affiliate program with the Association of Children’s Museums (ACM) is in effect until June 2013. After June, Discovery Science Place will no longer accept memberships from museums that are part of the ACM reciprocal program. Discovery Science Place members receive added benefits when visiting other museums affiliated with these organizations. Memberships to the Discovery Science Place are available to fit every family size and budget. Click here for more information.

The museum is currently offering three exhibits, Discovery Landing, Hometown, USA and our new tinkering gallery – Discovery Zone – where families are free to create, invent and explore. Don’t miss it!
