The Museum of Discovery is Little Rock’s hands-on science museum for children. The museum concentrates on making science and technology fun for all ages. It has many permanent exhibits that let children conduct hands-on experiments in electricity, light and color, architecture, robotics, computer technology, human anatomy and Arkansas history.
The museum also has special featured exhibits throughout the year. These exhibits normally fit with the museum’s theme of fun, hands-on science education. You can check the calendar for more information about current and upcoming exhibits.
The museum underwent a huge remodel in 2011 and has added a tinkering studio to encourage future makers to invent.
