Coming July 2016: Discovery Woods Nature Playscape & Treehouse!

Opening Celebration Weekend, July 16-17

Come on a nature adventure, starting with the coolest, biggest treehouse you’ve ever seen! Bounce the wiggly bridge, zoom the family-size slide, sway in the nest swing, and climb the cargo net…on your way to explore our woodland nook, rain garden, beaver lodge, and acres of adjoining forest. Discovery Woods will be your new, inclusive, fully-accessible nature playscape at The Discovery Museums—and the dramatic first phase of reimagining what’s next here! Learn more here.

Please note that Discovery Woods is currently under construction, scheduled to open in July. Join us for Opening Celebration Weekend, July 16-17---kids 12 and under free!
