What is there to do?

Kids want to play, and parents love kids to learn, so why not find a place you can visit that covers both?

Welcome to the Explore More Discovery Museum!

Formerly the Harrisonburg Children's Museum, this great attraction is perfect for those curious kids up to 12 years old, that love hands-on play and interactive fun!

Each of the exhibits were designed with those naturally curious kids in mind, where they recognize kids unique learning styles, and each exhibit will teach the kids something new and different!

Kids can cook up a delight in the farmers market and kitchen, with vegetables and produce ready to take off the shelves! Future builders can get those engineering minds working in the Construction Zone, where they can build small, or build big! Whatever takes their fancy! 

Doctors and nurses will be in their element in the Friendly City Medical Center! Kids can explore what a body looks like on the inside, and the best way to keep those organs healthy!

Future TV stars can read the breaking news in the TV Studio, and deliver it LIVE, and scientists will be able to immerse themselves in their fully-functional science lab, where it has all of the tools they need to perform experiments and discover those medical breakthroughs!

From theaters, to farms, and art, the Explore More Discovery Center has something for all kids!

If you have little ones in the family, don't miss the Over In The Meadow area, perfect for those little ones under 3 years. Here, this soft play environment is perfect for them to start getting creative early.
