Discovery Museum
Play, explore, and learn with hands-on interactive STEAM experiences that inspire curiosity, discovery, and fun! Explore a 13ft. air maze; tinker, build and invent like da Vinci; control, move, and divert water; and more!

Discovery Woods
Go on a nature adventure in the fully-accessible nature playscape and treehouse. The 550-square-foot treehouse serves as a launching point for outdoor activity and woodland exploration. Bounce the wiggly bridge, sway in the nest swing, and investigate the rain garden and beaver lodges.
