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.

Come explore the Museums’ campus at your own pace. During these events the Museums are open to the general public, but group visits and birthday parties are not scheduled in order to avoid crowding and to support exhibit accessibility. Quiet spaces are available during this time as well.
Please note: The Science Discovery Museum will be closed for renovations and expansion. The Children’s Discovery Museum and Discovery Woods will be open.
Pre-registration is required; space is limited.
