Discovery Activities & More!

Themed exhibit activities, specimens live animals and displays are changed out monthly.  Stop by regularly to find out what‘s new. 

Our 23 Smithsonian-style Discovery Boxes, perfect for the casual visitor as well as the homeschooled child (pre-k through elementary school), are available year round in the Small Discovery Room. One of our most popular boxes is "Herbs Your Nose Knows." Children use their sense of smell to identify herbs and can discover their uses in everything from pizza to soap! Children are always eager to take home a sample of their favorite herbs. 



Our Discovery Rooms offer children table top activities, specimens, live animals, microscopes and more.
