Young scientists ages 1 and up can get hands on with science in the Discovery Room! We provide a range of interactive exhibits that allow your child to experiment with the properties of magnets, explore the ways in which water behaves at a water table, and your child can even dress up and play in the medical area or Native American area. Our book nooks are perfect for sitting down on a comfy rug and opening a good book. Explore science and learning with your children as they begin to understand the world around them. Your family can experience the remarkable natural world together in a nurturing child-friendly environment. The Discovery Room helps your child focus on the fundamentals of science and technology and provides a learning resource for parents, children and teachers.

Program sessions are 45 minutes and begin on the hour. Come and explore the playful side of science!
