“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.

Early Childhood

Early Childhood programs serve as the platform for learning through experiential play. Classes are recommended for children ages 18 months to 8 years and include Music in Motion, Times for Tots, Creative Kids, Little Scientist, and Dollars & Cents.


Studio + Lab

STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) programs offer a wide variety of inquiry-based, participant-focused, and engaging experiences. Programs vary from 10-15 minute introductory activities to in-depth 30 to 60 minute family learning experiences. Recommended for children ages 2+ yrs.

World Connections

Cultural Programs

Discover and connect with Utah’s diverse communities during World Connections events throughout the year where many community groups, local artists, and performers are invited to share their talents and cultural traditions with children and families.
