All new hands-on, interactive exhibits that are fun for the whole family are waiting to be explored at the Discovery Museum.

Climb underneath the forest to see the life below, or try your smoke-jumping skills! Round out your adventure with video journeys to Siberia, China, South Africa and Brazil to learn about trees of the world. Come explore, discover and grow at the Discovery Museum!
