• Our History


  • Since 1993 our mission has been to "ignite curiosity in young minds through fun, hands-on exploration". Since our early beginnings as a Junior League of Tyler project in a donated former car dealership we have worked towards that goal. There is so much to see and experience at the Discovery Science Place. We have a variety of programs, exhibits, and events that are sure to entertain the whole family.

    We strive to make each trip to our museum memorable, fun and engaging for the whole family. We welcome ALL families and strive for an inclusive environment. The Discovery Science Place is also accessible to our guests in wheelchairs or who have other physical handicaps. Because of the hands-on nature of the exhibits, the museum is a wonderful place for people of all abilities to experience and learn more about our world. If you would like to see how we may be able to assist you further or help you plan ahead, please call 903.533.8011.

    Your support of the DSP means we can offer low admission pricing, our special rate "Museums for All" program, reduced cost field-trips, camp scholarships, and educational outreach programming throughout East Texas. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit we depend on donors, members, and community minded visitors like YOU!
