The Discovery Center's 15,708 sq ft building is nestled within four wooded acres of Topeka's Gage Park, providing numerous opportunities for outdoor exploration and discovery. The energy-efficient building creates a positive learning environment that enhances the exhibit experience and a wonderful connection to the outdoors through natural daylighting.

From the dramatic roofline that collects rainwater, to the rainbow colored glass wall, to the illuminated beacon vestibule, the building creates adventure and excitement at first glance. If your group would like to schedule a building tour, please contact Catie Walker at or 785.783.8300, ext 107. 

Group Tour Rates: $25 for up to 25 people; $50 for groups of 26 – 50.
