What is there to do?

A desert landscape is full of learning experiences, and in Rancho Mirage you'll find another one in the form of the Children's Discovery Museum!

Why a Discovery Museum?

Well, at this fun and colorful children's museum, parents and guardians are asked to say with their children during a visit, because you are a driving force in a child's learning and development! So at this discovery museum encourages adults to discover the emerging personalities of the children, and encourage the curiosities and imaginations that they hold within them!

The hands-on explorations of the many exhibits inspire personal growth, ensuring kids are playing and learning to become the best "them" that they can be!

The Children's Discovery Museum features over 80 hands-on exhibits across three galleries, suitable for children of all ages. Yes kids, you read that right. 80!

Kids can play make believe in ToddlerTown, with kiddie sized version of real life experiences. Those minds can get to work in Brain Buster Road, or kids can explore the power of wind, the human body, and even build a race car! Vroom Vroom!

There's a music garden to inspire, outdoor activities (including live animals!) to enjoy, and even a trike track for those active kids!

A playful, colorful and inspiring day out for the whole family at this Children's Discovery Museum.
