Scout Days

We have scouting down to a science.

Whether you are searching for a daytime program or evening overnight experience, Discovery Center Museum has you covered! Our unique programming will help your Scouts work towards achievements all while learning about science and having fun.

Bring your scout group to Discovery Center Museum for a fun-filled day of activities specifically designed to help scouts work towards completing achievement requirements! Through special hands on activities and exploration of our award winning exhibits, scouts and leaders alike will find that there’s always something new to discover together.

Each Scout Day runs from 11:00 am-3:00 pm with plenty of time to explore the museum and complete requirements! Check-in and special exhibit guides will be in the Loggia from 10:00 am-11:00 am.
