Discovery Corner: Just for Kids

  • Kids playing with toys in the Discovery Corner

The Discovery Corner is a hands-on exhibit for young children and their favorite adults to explore together. In this room on the lower level of the Museum you can touch real museum specimens, play with puppets, color pictures, and read books together.

Coming Soon!

The Discovery Corner is undergoing a renovation in 2017, thanks to the generous support of our donors.

The Discovery Corner renovation project will leverage the unique aspects of the Museum and the University to create a welcoming, safe, and comfortable space in the Museum that meets the needs of our community’s youngest citizens and supports all families seeking opportunities to explore and learn together.
