Diwali for Kids

Diwali is a Hindu celebration of light. As we continue our celebration of Diwali we are going to be making marigold flowers to decorate and hearing from our special guest Caru Das from the Radha Krishna Temple! During Diwali, people use marigolds to decorate because of the color and the scent. The bright smell is believed to help improve mood, and the vibrant color brings good luck. See the full lesson here: https://www.discoverygateway.org/steam-learning-lab-diwali/

What a fantastic place for a birthday party!! My son celebrated his 4th Birthday with the Derby Car theme. Kallie & Sara were fantastic!! They helped with setup, the room was perfect, and they had everything organized while remaining so patient and flexible!! We had lots of happy children and parents. I will certainly recommend your party options to friends! After not renewing my membership for about a year, I decided to give this place another chance. The inside has had an upgrade since last winter and we will be making more frequent trips to the museum. Thank you for a wonderful birthday party experience!
Thanks Discovery Gateway for the PJ Mask Live tickets! We had fun. ❤️
Can you please tell me when the BooFest event with KUED is?
