About Our Discovery Room 

The Discovery Room features two large aquariums, all new engaging exhibits and a 30-foot interactive screen where guests can virtually immerse themselves in woodland habitats and seasons, learn fun facts about wildlife and play a variety of games – competing to be the top lizard in a push-up challenge; jumping as high as a frog to catch dinner; or posing for a woodpecker selfie and MORE! The environmental stewardship area of the Discovery Room will inspire guests to take action to keep our waters clean, pick up litter and recycle.

This new space allows more opportunities to host meetings, weddings and traveling exhibits.

A collapsible wall featuring vibrant graphics closes in our learning labs providing secure and private access for our field investigations and classes, but can be opened to expand the exhibit area when not in use.  The Discovery Room features our aquariums, all NEW environmental exhibits, and a NEW interactive wall where guests can immerse themselves in woodland habitats and seasons, learn fun facts about wildlife, and play a variety of games where guests can compete to be the top lizard in a push up challenge; jump as high as a frog to catch dinner;  or pose for a woodpecker carving and MORE! No bare feet, thank you for keeping your shoes on while visiting The Discovery Room.
