Bright futures begin with you

Ever wonder how to build a lifelong love of learning?

For more than 70 years Discovery Place has inspired curiosity, encouraged invention and moved millions of visitors to develop and pursue their passions for science, technology and nature. This impact is made possible by donors who provide opportunities for learners of all ages and backgrounds to engage in inquiry-based education in our Museums, in the classroom and in our communities. We invite you to join us today in helping to change lives forever.
