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.
Need a unique gift or something fun to remember your visit? You'll find toys, science and art kits, puzzles, t-shirts and more in the Discovery Store, located in the museum lobby. We have a variety of kid-approved items from Melissa & Doug, Kid Made Modern, Folkmanis, Crazy Aaron’s Thinking Putty, and many other specialty vendors.
Prices are affordable and all proceeds go right back to supporting the hands-on fun and learning for all at the museum.
Museum admission is never required to browse the store and members always enjoy a 10% discount!
