Don Harrington Discovery Center

Although anyone can learn a thing or two by opening a textbook, it’s way more fun to get your hands dirty. That’s exactly what you and youngsters can do at the Don Harrington Discovery Center. Boasting 8,000 square feet of interactive exhibits, the center offers exciting lessons in astronomy, natural history, physics and more. Let your younger kids move blocks and climb in the KinderStudio and make some new furry and scaly friends at Critter Row. There are seasonal and temporary exhibits to explore as well. Play giant-sized versions of Jenga, soccer billiards and chess at Physics @ Play and let your kids build and create—while learning the concepts of force, inertia and gravity—in Imagination Playground.

The Don Harrington Discovery Center brings to life the forces that shape our world in concrete ways that everyone can learn from. Visit and you may leave with future scientists in the family.
