Our philosophy starts with the simple belief that kids are capable of incredible things. Our job is to nurture that ability; our goal is to support kids' healthy development. Play is how kids learn--here, it is in both a STEM-rich environment and inviting outdoor experience.

Come explore the entire Museum campus at your own pace. We are open to the general public during these events, but group visits and birthday parties are not scheduled in order to avoid crowding and to support exhibit accessibility. Quiet spaces are available during this time as well. You can prepare for your visit by downloading the Story Guide to Discovery Woods at http://bit.ly/2hZP1rh and by visiting the Exhibits section of our website.
Pre-registration required at http://bit.ly/ASDFebruary2018 as space is limited.
