Since opening to the public in 2011, The Discovery has solidified its place in our region as the home for informal science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM) learning. Through hands-on galleries and exhibitions, and a robust array of educational programs, The Discovery connects learners of all ages with opportunities to explore a wide variety of ever-changing topics, all designed to inspire curiosity and further investigation.
Originally founded as a children’s museum, The Discovery has quickly transformed into a world-class science center serving much more than families with young children. This transformation is driven by the knowledge that the museum’s potential to make a larger impact in our region requires serving a much broader demographic. By becoming Northern Nevada’s hub for fun, hands-on science exploration for all ages, The Discovery augments our community’s educational offerings and plays a critical role in the cultural and economic growth of our community.
