Now Open: Discovery Woods Nature Playscape & Treehouse!

Come on a nature adventure, starting with the coolest, biggest treehouse you’ve ever seen! Bounce the wiggly bridge, zoom down 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 lodges, 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! Read the announcement here and learn more here.
