An exciting new traveling exhibit, Measurement Rules, is here and being installed at the Curious Kids' Discovery Zone! If all goes well, it'll be set up and ready for our guests on Thursday, May 23 - worst case, Friday, May 24th it is! Keep watching this page for updates.

Ever wondered how much you weigh...in CHICKENS?! Or how tall you are...in APPLES?! Measurement Rules, the latest interactive exhibit being installed in the Curious Kids' Discovery Zone's Gast Traveling Exhibit Gallery, takes measuring to a fun, new level. Visitors will use lots of unorthodox units to measure volume, length, weight, time and distance. Step on the Chicken Scale and try to figure out how much a chicken weighs as a unit of measure. At the Bead Table, use funnels and measuring cups to determine the volume of different shaped cylinders. When visitors explore the Block Table, they can use the cubic blocks to construct animal sculptures and determine their volume. Use the Giant Tape Measure to determine the length of whales, jellyfish and other sea creatures. Create a Ball Stopwatch by changing the path to make the ball go as slow or as fast as you want. Measurement Rules, an original exhibit created by the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh will be at Curious Kids' Discovery Zone through August. We can't wait for you to come play and learn!

So much fun in our wonderful town!

West Michigan is one of our favorite places to spend time in the summer and St. Joseph (St. Joe if you're a local) is a fantastic place for families. Check out all the kid-friendly activities in this lakeshore town just a couple of hours from Indy, Chicago and northern Ohio.

The Curious Kids' Discovery Zone in the Silver Beach Center is green from top to bottom!

Installed this week is a new traveling exhibit, Rainforest Adventure. Children explore the rain forest canopy and crawl through the forest floor as they learn about the beauty and fragility of this unique, diverse ecosystem and about the communities of people who live there. This lively and colorful exhibit is at Discovery Zone only through Labor Day, so don’t wait to explore!

Also being installed this month is a brand new living roof, courtesy of Sam and Connie Monte, who gifted the original roof in 2010, the year Discovery Zone was built and opened. Since that initial installation, the planted roof has added charm and beauty to the view along the bluff, not to mention providing β€œgreen” benefits in heating and cooling expense savings to the Curious Kids’ Discovery Zone. It’s like a meadow on top of the building, perfectly situated for the city of St. Joseph to enjoy!
