About this activity

Hands up who's excited about having a fun, hands-on adventure that lets you enjoy science through interactive exhibits and explosive experiments? Our hands are up!

Discovery Place gives those little active and inquisitive minds a fun, hands-on day filled with discovery, excitement, and amazement! It's a place where science is brought to life through amazing exhibits, explosive experiments and interactive learning.

Kids can connect with the past, and explore the future with their groundbreaking exhibitions, and very cool larger-than-life IMAX Dome films.

At Discovery Place, there is something for the whole family, not just the little ones! Adults get just as much enjoyment out of Discovery Place,  because there is always something new that you will be learning too!

Kids can explore a multi-sensory world of sound, light, color and creation. They can challenge themselves by solving problems, and develop their ability to work together.

The museum lets kids build forts, and skyscrapers, and pyramids. They can develop floor plans and sketches. They can learn everything there is to know about science.

Discovery Place also has fun 3D Theater experiences, where family friendly short films let kids get lost in the 3D world!

KidScience is perfect for those little ones under 7 years, with experiments based on science and math. Here, they can tinker, touch, and play with blocks, gears, air tubes, wind tunnels, and more!

So get ready to have some North Carolina discovery fun at Discovery Place...there is much learning to be had!
