“You can’t use up creativity. The more you use the more you have.”

– Maya Angelou

Due to COVID-19 our onsite programming has been temporarily suspended. The Museum is offering free online programming at this time. Check out our STEAM Learning Lab Blog for fun weekly activities that will keep your child’s creativity running wild and keep their gears turning!

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, and science programming, to visual and performing arts. Discovery Gateway’s daily classes are free with admission to the Museum, and every Discovery Gateway program is based on research, evaluation, and testing.
