“I have decided to stick with love, hate is too great a burden to bear.” - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Today we celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Junior and all that he taught us and continues to teach us about equality, inclusion, justice, empathy, diversity, service, compassion, and how each and everyone one of us can change the world for the better. Thank you to our partners the Utah Gslac Deltas for volunteering and helping to provide programming and activities, and to Kenneth Hopkins for his incredible performance of the “I have a Dream” speech, and to all of our visitors for joining us today!

I wish you didn't require affidavits, my 4 year old is homeschooled but not in kindergarten age yet so I don't have an affidavit.
Great member event today! Thank you, Discovery Gateway Children's Museum!
My kids had SO much fun yesterday!!! THANK YOU! I knew it was going to be busy (since it was a free day) but I didn't expect to have that much fun, it was awesome and totally worth the drive.
Ogden In-Person Information Session - Exploring Utah Virtual Academy Program Options Wednesday, November 28, 2018 @ 04:30PM - 06:00PM Weber County Main Branch Library More details available at utva.k12.com/events-calendar.
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?
