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 new Museum building and Discovery Woods at your own pace! We will be open to the general public during this event, but group visits and birthday parties are not scheduled in order to avoid crowding and to support exhibit accessibility. You can prepare for your visit by downloading the Story Guide to Discovery Woods at http://bit.ly/2hZP1rh and by visiting the Exhibits section of our website.
Pre-registration required at http://bit.ly/asdapril2018 as space is limited.
Please Note: Our new, unified museum building and Discovery Woods will be open this afternoon; the Children’s Discovery Museum is now permanently closed to visitors. We will be creating a new Museum Story Guide to help introduce visitors to the new museum, but until it is ready we are happy to answer any questions about our new facility by phone.
