While 2020 may not have been the year we anticipated, this year, we welcomed the creation of our At-Home DISCOVERIES, our Study Hall program to help students with distanced learning and created new community partnerships so that together we can all put Our Kids First.
As always, what we do here is made possible by YOU. So thank you for every donation you have made this year, especially during our closure, and Happy New Year.

DISCOVERY Children’s Museum is the top interactive museum in the Las Vegas Valley, welcoming children and families to explore three entire floors packed with heart-pumping, brain-boosting, curiosity-satisfying fun, adventure and discovery. We opened our doors in March 2013 as a nonprofit educational institution in Symphony Park and serve as Las Vegas’ only children’s museum spanning across 26,000 square feet of interactive and educational hands-on exhibits. Our 3-story museum is complete with nine exhibition galleries featuring immersive traveling exhibitions, daily programs, demonstrations and activities and collaborative cultural programming for all occasions. DISCOVERY Children’s Museum offers children the opportunity to explore their dearest curiosities while addressing the core educational areas of science and nature, art and culture and early childhood development.

I have cultivated children using the Reggio Emilia theory, Montessori Theory, Cognitive Behavioral Theory, Continuity Theory, Attachment Theory, Power of self Theory, and coaching. Through it all I have learned no matter what the theory is you choose to work with, your children will gain their social and emotional intelligence from what you model for them. Raising empathetic, caring, socially aware, and powerful young beings is my specialty. Child cultivation geared to children 2-12 years old.
When’s I’ll the museum be open to the public
Our students love to come to the Discovery Children's Museum on Summer Camp field trips. Great activities for all ages! We come ever summer for new and exciting exhibits.
Question, will your annual memberships go on sale for black Friday? Or at anytime during the holiday season?
Do you guys ever post deals on groupon or half off days? I want to take my little ones at least once but money is funny and change is strange. ❤️
I'm trying to locate prices. Id like to bring my kids here.
