The Premier Children's Museum in Utah

To inspire children of all ages and abilities to imagine, discover, and connect with their world to make a difference.

To be the most trusted and preferred family discovery center and child-centered educational resource in the intermountain west.

Discovery Gateway’s programs and exhibits are designed to address the many ways that children learn, as well as to help parents understand and support their children’s development. Our engaging and interactive activities inspire creative play and learning, and fun for the entire family.

Formerly The Children’s Museum of Utah, our organization was founded in 1978 by a group of parents, educators, and community leaders who believed that children learn the best through “doing.” In 2006, The Children’s Museum of Utah moved into our 60,000 square-foot, world-class facility and officially became Discovery Gateway children’s museum.

Discovery Gateway children’s museum is a non-profit organization. Download a copy of our tax-exempt return.
