Curious Kids' Discovery Zone is a separate building in addition to their flagship Curious Kids' Museum just around the corner, but it's filled with JUST as much fun!
Discovery Zone features both permanent AND traveling hands-on exhibits for kids aged 3 to 12 years, introducing them to a whole range of themes, fun and more!
Those curious kids can discover the awesome power of sound as they create sound waves in a tube, match mystery sounds and even test their hearing!
The Lighthouse Kids Climbing Tower is perfect for those active kids as they climb the wave steps to the top of a spirally 25ft high tower. Just imagine saving the ships on Lake Michigan from the imminent shoreline!
From saving ships to the Lake Michigan Water Table, this fun exhibit is JUST like the real great lake on your doorstep, as kids sail their handmade boats through the currents, use the wind jets to sail, and even raise and lower water levels with locks and damns!
Those active kids will love the climbing wall as they take on the challenge to cross the wall from left to right. Kids, don't forget to keep an eye out for the little animals tucked into the cracks!
Curious Kids' Discovery Zone even have exhibits that teach kids invaluable lessons, such as the Clean Water Bio Sand Filter, where they can gain an understanding of what it's like to not have clean water, and they can watch how the planet has a natural filter!
From the fun of whispering, to a creative pin wall and so much more, Discovery Zone is ALL about giving kids a super fun time, where they can also learn, develop and discovery across their day!
So let's PLAY!
