In the News: Discovery Center and Briggs Partner to Serve Military Families

The Kansas Children's Discovery Center and announced a new partnership this week to serve military families. The partnership includes Briggs financial support to underwrite the museum 10% off military discount for the next 12 months and outreach to active and retired military families in Northeast Kansas.

The Military Discount is one of several access programs to make the museum accessible to all children. More than one in ten Discovery Center admissions are free or donor subsidized. These admissions included over 1,000 Museums for All visitors from families receiving TANF or WIC, and over 5,000 field trip visitors from schools with a high percentage of children receiving free or reduced cost lunches.

The Discovery Center is a hands-on children’s museum with a mission to enhance the lives of children and enrich the communities it serves. Since opening in 2011 in Topeka, Kansas, the Discovery Center has become a special place where children can explore, create, discover and learn through play. The museum features over 15,000 square feet of indoor exhibits and a 4.5 acre certified Nature Explore Outdoor Classroom. Outreach programs bring quality, hands-on experiences into our community to inspire a lifelong love of learning for every child.

Thank you to for supporting families!
