Explore over 300 Interactive Exhibits!

Would you like to soar through the sky in a jet, then explore the universe? Would you like to forecast the weather in a television studio? Or show off your coordination and dance moves on a fitness floor? How about using your own body to generate electricity? You can even go outside to our Rock River Discovery Park and navigate the two-story maze, search for dinosaur fossils and make a splash in the water play area.

When you visit Discovery Center Museum, you and your family can explore the world, and even the universe, without ever leaving our inspiring environment. The thrill of exploration and discovery is built into every one of our 300-plus hands-on science and arts exhibits located inside Discovery Center Museum and outside in our Rock River Discovery Park.

Create a masterpiece of art to take home in this kid-friendly art studio. The Art Studio encourages both individual and collaborative visual arts experiences utilizing a wide variety of materials and tools. Many types of media such as painting, sculpture, drawing, printmaking, and crafts are explored through the use of color, patterns and textures. Rotating materials provide an endless supply of inspiration! Children can stop by the Art Studio any time it is open.

For a special treat, the Art Studio features Messy Mondays – special art projects each Monday during the summer and on school holidays during the school year. Kids will love making a messy project and you will love leaving the mess and cleanup in the Art Studio and not at home!
