With exhibit areas focusing on the arts, mathematics, sciences and the humanities, the Discovery Museum offers hours of fun for the entire family.

Any field trip forecast for this week?
who are the first founder of the Shenandoah Valley Discovery Museum ?
My family and I love your place! We visit often and have even had our oldest two daughter's parties there. I wish there was just 1 more thing there....as a friendly suggestion....an infant/toddler area. Padded and enclosed. Somewhere safe to let the little ones down to play. 😊 Thanks for all you do. Keep up the good work!
