Museum of Discovery Offers Families New Experiences

It is a new day at the Museum of Discovery. After a 10-month renovation, the museum re-opened its doors in January. Located in Little Rock's River Market District, the new facility has a fresh look and feel. It has a new front entrance that opens right up on President Clinton Avenue. Nearly 30,000 people have already visited the new museum.

The museum has almost 90 science and technology exhibits in three new galleries focused on health, physical and earth sciences. Whether one lies on a bed of nails to feel the effects of weight distribution, hears one's own heart beat on a drum, or "experiences" a real tornado and what safety precautions to take, the museum offers a number of educational opportunities for families. And, on any given weekend at the museum, families can find special events, science demonstrations, creative projects in the new tinkering studio, animal interviews and more. It's the perfect place to explore, imagine and create.

One thing that has stayed at the museum is a family favorite - Room to Grow. This area is for children ages six and under. Little ones can ride a pirate ship, climb a lighthouse, perform in the theater and, well, be a kid!

The new Museum of Discovery is a great place for families to come have fun and learn at the same time. Children of all ages will enjoy "experimenting" with all of the new things the museum has to offer.

For more information on the museum's event schedules, hours of operation, admission prices, Dollar Sundays at the Museum and more, please visit or call (501) 396-7050.
