DISCOVERY is a private, non-profit children's museum designed to provide enjoyable learning experiences for Southern Nevada residents and visitors.
DISCOVERY presents exhibits and programs that are geared to the emotional physical and intellectual perspective of the child; they are designed to stimulate thought, imagination and understanding; and to expand perception through participation.

To address the needs of younger and older children, the Museum develops specialized programs and exhibits geared to early learners and adolescents.
