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. Before you leave, be sure to stop into our Discovery Store featuring hundreds of unique toys and gifts (perfect for that upcoming birthday – that we can host!)

We strive to make each trip to our museum memorable, fun and engaging for the whole family. The Discovery Science Place is fully 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.

Please note that we are closed on all major holidays.
