Learning Through Play

Exhibits & Programs

Our exhibit galleries and daily programs offer visitors hours of interactive learning through play!

NEW Exhibit: I Dig Dinos

See the world of paleontology through a child's eyes at our new exhibit, I Dig Dinos! Dig up dinosaur fossils in a huge dig pit, prepare the bones to be shipped back to the lab in field jackets, transport the dinosaur bones to a child-sized research laboratory (complete with kid-sized lab coats, real fossils, and microscopes)! Explore over 2,000 square feet of interactive, hands-on fun with real fossils and bones and learn about life millions of years ago.


Interactive exhibit galleries focus on creativity, collaboration, discovery, problem solving, design, and experiential education through art, science, and literacy.


Discovery Gateway’s daily Early Childhood, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math), and World Connections programming offers fun and educational classes that range from literacy and cultural based activities, to scientific exploration, to visual and performing arts.
