Explore the many exciting and interactive exhibits inside this children’s museum! Ideally suited from children under 11, Discovery Playhouse features 7,500 square feet of exhibit space where kids can play and learn. Little ones can shop in the grocery store, practice dentistry skills, splash in the Secret Water Garden, learn about money at the bank, milk a cow at Grandma Ruth’s Farm, care for the babies in the nursery and watch balls zoom and whoosh through the tunnels of Air-Maze-ing Fun. You’ll have a hard time convincing your kid it’s time to go!

Exhibits from other regional museums and science centers are regularly rotated, so every visit is a new discovery.

Discovery Playhouse also offers educational programming incorporating science, music, math and art. Birthday parties in the fun and spacious party room and special events can be arranged, and annual memberships are available for a year’s worth of fun. The Downtown Toy Store boasts high-quality and educational toys.
