The Kansas Children’s Discovery Center’s 2021 Annual Report is now available online!
The museum celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2021, and the annual report is a great showcase of how much the Discovery Center has grown in that time. Since opening in 2011, the museum has hosted more than 770,000 visitors from all 50 states and 23 countries, as well as five major traveling exhibitions.
The Discovery Center focuses on four pillars of play to deliver serious fun for its guests while also providing educational resources and community outreach. They include being advocates for children, being an educational laboratory, activating play outside of our walls and being a sustainable nonprofit.
The Discovery Center also has an economic impact on the community that is immeasurable, providing both a community anchor and a tourist attraction. The museum improves the quality of life in Topeka and helps engage the next generation of dreamers and leaders in the fields of science, technology, engineering, art and math through STEAM play.
The museum’s 2021 financial information also is available in the report.
