PLEASE NOTE: Discovery Science Place will be CLOSED Tuesday, January 16th due to inclement weather. We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday, January 17th at 10:00 am!
The Discovery Science Place is a dynamic children’s museum where young minds have the freedom to examine, play, and find wonder in the world around them.
It’s no secret that play and learning have become increasingly separated in our world today.
It doesn’t have to be that way. At the Discovery Science Place:
- Parents see that learning through play and exploration develops curiosity and social skills.
- Students make connections to what they are learning in the classroom with our hands-on activities and programs.
- Children interact with our exhibits and think more critically about the world around them.
- Families spend more time having fun together and making memories at birthday parties and events.
Seek, make, learn, and grow at the Discovery Science Place
The magic of meaningful play
Fun, hands-on learning experiences spark a love of learning with far-reaching benefits.
Integrated learning supports school success because it improves retention, understanding, and curiosity.
Growth and development
Interacting with the world around them grows a child not only mentally, but physically, emotionally, and socially.
Learning about the world around them increases a child’s care for the world and others.
