What do Discovery Kits support?

The Discovery Center is a self-supporting nonprofit children's museum. We receive no ongoing government funding and rely on income generated from admissions, memberships, programs and your donations to create joyful play for families. We are committed to ensuring accessibility for every family and more than one in ten admissions is free or donor subsidized based on need. We strive to remove barriers that prevent play at our children’s museum, including financial, medical and developmental. We are proud to serve as a community anchor where all families are celebrated.

Discovery Kit purchases help sustain and strengthen our organization. Purchasing a Discovery Kit is the perfect way to buy local and support your community children’s museum.
