Created with children's input, Creative Discovery Museum is full of “Wow” for adults and kids. With a wide variety of fun, hands-on exhibits, the museum inspires a love for learning through play.

Whether you create a clay sculpture in our Artists’ Studio, zoom a message through a pneumatic tube in Inventors’ Clubhouse, dig for dinosaur bones in Excavation Station, or create an ensemble cast of characters in our Back Alley Theatre, Creative Discovery Museum has it all.

Let the little ones (under 4) tinker in the Little Yellow Garage or explore the infant garden of Little Yellow House. The whole family will discover floods of fun in RiverPlay’s 2 and 1/2 story high climbing structure and design an interactive watercourse where you can sail boats, learn about locks and dams, and shoot jets of water to make whirligigs spin!
