All exhibits, activities and experiences provided by the Discovery Museum adhere to the following philosophical guidelines:

  • Exhibits, activities and programs are interactive, participatory and informal, and give visitors opportunities to experiment, have fun playing, use their imaginations and share ideas.
  • Visitors are engaged at their own level of expertise and experience.
  • Activities and programs are multi-sensory, authentic, honest, and factual.

The Museum works in a spirit of cooperation and partnership with educational, cultural, governmental and community organizations.  These include:
