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 Children's Discovery Museum and Discovery Woods, our inclusively accessible nature playscape and treehouse, at your own pace. We will be open to the public during this time, but group visits and birthday parties will not be scheduled in order to avoid crowding and to support exhibit accessibility. Quiet spaces will be available during this time as well.
You can prepare for your visit by downloading the Story Guide to Discovery Woods and by visiting the Exhibits section of our website. Discovery Woods is open year round but closes at dusk during the winter months.
Pre-registration is required, as space is limited. A registration link will appear on this listing once registration is open, typically at least 30 days prior to the event.
