Our philosophy starts with the simple belief that kids are capable of incredible things. Our job is to nurture that ability; our goal is to support kids' healthy development. Play is how kids learn--here, it is in both a STEM-rich environment and inviting outdoor experience.

It’s Caterpillar Week at the Discovery Museum! Join us as The Caterpillar Lab takes over our PlayLab and turns it into a mini version of their own lab space, located in Keene, NH. This program will feature a huge variety of New England caterpillar species and there will be plenty to see and touch! Educators from The Caterpillar Lab will teach you all about metamorphosis and tell incredible but true stories about the creatures' strange and surprising adaptations. Some caterpillars may be camouflaged to look like twigs or snakes. Some may have stinging spines or brightly colored baubles. Check out some little-known native critters munching on their food plants right in front of you. You're sure to see something new! Learn more about The Caterpillar Lab at www.thecaterpillarlab.com
