What is there to do?

The Garden State Discovery Museum is a place where playful and curious kids up to 10 years can explore science, get those hands messy with art, or be the her in their very own story!

In fact, there are over 20 giant kid-powered exhibits where kids can imagine, create, explore, discovery, learn and yes, PLAY!

Go back to prehistoric time in the Dinosaurism, a tribute to south Jersey's role in dinosaur discovery (did you know the first ever dinosaur was discovered just shy of 8 miles from the museum itself?)

Kids can dig for bones in the excavation site, and explore the scientists tent!

For those playful little ones under 4 years, the Little Discoveries Barnyard is a creative space JUST for them, with giant slides, climbing structures, and even barnyard fun like feeding horses and jumping into pig pens!

Garden State Discovery Museum invites kids to get those hands messy as they create an arts & crafts masterpiece, or kids can play in a giant bubble and learn the "science behind the suds"!

Kids can sit behind the news desk and report on the weather, with real kid-operated cameras, or learn how to care for household pets in the Vet Pet clinic! Can you figure out how to make those stuffed animal patients feel better?

With a climbing wall for active kids, and REAL animals in the Wildlife Area, home to scaly friends and creepy crawlers, and SO many more things to explore at the Garden State Discovery Museum, it really is a day fit for - well, discovery!
