The Discovery Center turns 35 this year and we need your help to keep the Museum fun & vibrant for another 35+ years!
Who we are:
Now in its fourth decade, The Discovery Center is a hands-on interactive children’s museum serving the Southern Tier of New York and Northeastern Pennsylvania. Located in a historic city park, this remarkable 22,500 square foot space is a unique learning environment. Created for, with and by children, the Museum’s 30+ interactive exhibitions spark creative thinking, foster play-based learning, and build self-esteem. The Museum's award-winning 2-acre outdoor exhibit space, the Story Garden, promotes an appreciation for gardens, the environment, and, of course, having fun outside!
In addition to interactive exhibits, The Discovery Center operates three fully licensed preschool classrooms, a UPK program for the Binghamton City School district; a K-5 after school program; an Extended Playtime program for 3 and 4 year olds, family workshops, and STEAM-based summer day camps. All Discovery Center school programs are Standard Approved by the New York State Education Department and offered to elementary students annually either by our mobile Museum to You program or here on site. The Museum welcomes nearly 57,000 visitors each year.
