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.

The Discovery Corner is changing! 

The Discovery Corner is undergoing a renovation, but is open for exploration. We hope you'll come by and help us try out new activities and tell us what you think.

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.
