Events and Activities

Host an Event: We offer beautiful and educationally rich spaces from which to choose from in a complex that includes 14 wooded acres, a planetarium, shaded deck, and a fascinating exhibit hall.  Create an ideal environment to fit your event, from 20 to 100 guests.  From sophisticated and dramatic to out-of-this-world, the museum is a hidden gem that will make your special event sparkle!

Birthdays: Sit down, take a load off and let the Discovery Museum do the party planning for you. We offer two party package options: the Space Party and the Dino Party.

Discovery Weekends: Each weekend from 12:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., the Museum explores a new science topic through special displays, visiting exhibits, and guest presentations—followed by free craft activities for kids 4 to 12 years old!
