Discovery Zone

Discovery Zone

Grand Opening June 7, 2014, 9 a.m.

The new Discovery Zone on Level 2 is made possible by Kaiser Permanente. Its activities will help build a strong foundation of science skills for young children through hands-on, highly experiential Museum experiences.


Exhibits, activities, and programs focus on the science process skills, such as observing, quantifying, inquiring, analyzing, creating, and communicating. The gallery provides experiences that expose early learners to basic science concepts in physical science, life science, earth and space sciences, math, and human culture, engaging them in open-ended play and experimentation.
