Discovery Day at the Museum

On the third Saturday of every month children ages 6 to 12 (at time of event) can enjoy fun and learning in a wholesome atmosphere through the exciting Discovery Day program. Discovery Day is four hours of fun and learning through hands-on interactive activities led by trained educators who love working with kids. Each month children will:

  • Meet a Scientist and get the inside scoop on the theme for the month. (The first hour of each Discovery Day allows participants a chance to interact with a professional scientist.)

  • Create and construct projects they can take home.

  • Conduct experiments that explore and investigate the world around them.


Each month Discovery Day participants explore a different theme. Past themes include Bats, Early Settlers, Native American Heritage, Wildlife in the Winter, The Magic of Science, and Wonderful Weather.
