Discovery Rooms

Sixteen themed Discovery Rooms occupy two floors of one wing of the museum complex. Providing visitors with hands-on activities, these rooms are designed to invigorate young imaginations and introduce them to the worlds of Vertebrates, Invertebrates, Communication, Health, Water and Bubbles, Energy, Optics, and Sound, among others. Parents as well as children will be thrilled to walk through a model of the human heart, to "communicate" in hieroglyphics, to play a tune on the walk-on piano, and to try their hand at reporting the TV news and weather.
