A children’s science museum focusing on hands-on learning fun, Discovery Museum offers daily planetarium shows included with admission. Interactive exhibits include “Dare to Discover” challenges, “Get Physical!” and a Preschool Play Area. Simulated NASA space missions in Discovery’s Challenger Center, a mock space station and mission control with state-of-the-art technologies, create a cooperative learning atmosphere underscored by teamwork, communication, problem-solving, and decision-making and are available for student, scout, and homeschool groups as well as for parties and corporate team building. Numerous special events throughout the year provide STEM learning fun for youths and adults.
