Programs

“The more you learn, the better feeling you have about yourself and the world we live in.”
– Fred Rogers

Whether your child loves painting, dancing, stories, or scientific exploration our programming offers fun and educational classes that range from literacy and culturally-based activities, to science, to visual and performing arts. Discovery Gateway’s daily classes and weekly workshops are free with admission to the Museum, and every Discovery Gateway program is based on research, evaluation, and testing.
