Jeanes Discovery Center

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, and Light and Sound, among others. Children and families will be thrilled to discover the hidden colors within light, 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.
