Discovery Room

Our Discovery Room is a hands-on exhibit space designed for visitors to explore museum objects in a stimulating and fun environment. Discover objects housed in the collection drawers, complete a series of tabletop activities, excavate dinosaur bones or simply examine the many wonders displayed in the room.

Discovery Room Sessions

Discovery Room Sessions allow students to participate in free-choice learning opportunities and free play activities that enhance their understanding of natural and cultural history. Each session begins with a short introduction to the room by a Discovery Room staff member. Students are then encouraged to explore the room independently. These 25 minute sessions are most appropriate for PreK through grade 5 and are limited to a maximum of 25 students per session. Fee is $25 per session.
