Programs

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

– Maya Angelou

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.
