The mission of the Children’s Discovery Museum is to inspire the love of learning through the power of play. Our mission is accomplished by providing hands-on exhibits, classes, and programs that actively engage the visitor in experiences that stimulate imagination, curiosity, and wonder.
The Children’s Discovery Museum’s values:
- A safe, fun, inclusive and engaging environment.
- Variety of experiences that address many styles of learning.
- Flexibility of thought, and adaptability of behaviors, to allow for meeting individual needs and wishes.
- A powerful play experience, and a passionate staff, to assist in the development of the whole child surrounded by healthy relationships, healthy families and a healthy community.
