Creative Discovery Museum

One of the nation’s top children’s museums, the Creative Discovery Museum inspires children’s passion for learning through play. Whether creating a clay sculpture in the Artists' Studio, zooming a message through a pneumatic tube in Inventors' Clubhouse, digging for dinosaur bones in Excavation Station, or creating an ensemble cast of characters in the Back Alley Theatre, this museum is full of hands-on family fun. Children 4 years and younger can spend time exploring the infant garden of the Little Yellow House, while kids of all ages will enjoy RiverPlay's 2-1/2 story high climbing structure. Riverplay also offers an interactive watercourse to sail boats, learn about locks and dams, and shoot jets of water to make whirligigs spin!

Now through January 8, discover frozen fun in the Winter Wonders exhibit. Play dress up in the cozy cottage, “make” gingerbread cookies, and take a stroll through the winter forest. Explore the mysteries of the new “blizzard” pool noodle maze and practice your skills in the newly enlarged “ice skating area.”
