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!

May 24 – September 7 enjoy THE WIZARD OF OZ CHILDREN’S EDUCATIONAL EXHIBITION. Take a journey of self-discovery to the land over the rainbow as you enjoy activities that promote imagination and creativity. Experience the adventures of Dorothy and her friends as they find their way back to true happiness while exploring elements of the movie available only in this licensed exhibition including shoes like Dorothy’s Ruby Slippers, the characters everyone knows and loves from the film and classic movie moments.
