Discovery Museum Speaker Series

Join us for the 2023 Series: Conversation. Understanding. Hope.


The Discovery Museum Speaker Series presents expert voices on matters of importance to our communities, free of charge and open to the public. Researchers, educators, best-selling authors, and field experts bring national perspective to pressing topics underscored by the Discovery Museum’s three-pronged emphasis on science, nature, and play. 

An additional event, "Helping Children Find Hope Amidst Climate Anxiety," presented in partnership with Madison Children's Museum, will be scheduled for Fall 2023. Please check back for details and reservation information. 

The virtual events will be live captioned. If there is anything we can do to make our Speakers Series more accessible to you, please let us know. We will do what we can to provide any needed accommodations.

Certificates of attendance are available upon request. Available recordings of past programs may be found on our YouTube channel.
