Children's Discovery Museum

Children's Discovery Museum The Children's Discovery Museum aims to provide local families with an interactive, child-focused space to foster discovery and learning.
(46)

Imagine a child friendly space right here in Cowlitz County where children and their families could engage in imaginative, interactive hands on learning during those rainy Washington days... The Children's Discovery Museum is a gift to the community. It will provide a "pop- up" children's museum and the opportunity to facilitate family and kids (age up to 17) engaging in imaginative, interactive, hands on learning in a safe and supportive environment. We will have a variety of exhibits to explore imaginative play, the arts and sciences. The Children's Discovery Museum is a volunteer run museum. As of November 2016 the museum is housed in the Three Rivers Mall next to Macy's. Starting in January 2017, the museum will be open Wednesdays 11a-4p and Sundays 1p-4p. This project will not be possible without the support and enthusiasm of community members. So please spread the word to your friends and family. We hope that you and your family join us on this adventure. Please contact us through Facebook or email with any questions or to learn more about volunteer opportunities with the Children's Discovery Museum.

*Breaking News* CHILDREN’S DISCOVERY MUSEUM MOVES TO A NEW SPACE AND CONTINUES TO OFFER SAME GREAT ACTIVITIES

Kelso, WA, June 25, 2019 –The Children’s Discovery Museum is relocating across the hall from our current home at the Three Rivers Mall. We are grateful and pleased to continue our great partnership to be able to offer 360 degrees of FREE learning fun providing kids and their adults a lively and safe environment to learn, engage, play and make new friends.

We will require a temporary closure to accommodate the move to our new home. Our last day of operation in our current space will be on June 30, 2019. We anticipate our grand opening in our new location sometime the beginning of August.

In the meantime, please plan on joining us for a family friendly baseball game on July 10, 2019 at 6:30 PM for a fundraiser in partnership with the Cowlitz Black Bears. The Cowlitz Black Bears graciously donates $4.00 of any ticket purchases before July 7, 2019 from their special ticketing platform. You can link directly to the Groupmatics account through the event on our Facebook account under tickets.

If you are unable to join us for the game on July 10th, we will also be hosting our August Science Sunday in partnership with the City of Kelso and the Kelso Downtown Revitalization Association next to Kelso City Hall August 11, 2019 from 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM. This off-site event will feature water related activities and fun!

Please follow us HERE to keep up with this new move and more exciting news from the Children’s Discovery Museum! We will always offer our same great services and dedication to Cowlitz County children only now from a slightly different location.
