The Museum's outdoor Children's Discovery Garden captivates children with a wide variety of nature-based science activities and exhibits. Interactive exhibits such as the Water Wise Table, Nature Play, and the Pollinator Garden help children of all ages learn to appreciate their surroundings.
Visit this interactive water table to learn about water conservation and buoyancy while building intricate paths for water to flow through. From there, stop by the Aquaponic Garden to learn about sustainability, pollution prevention, and the water cycle.
In Base Camp, children become young archaeologists, paleontologists, and geologists as they learn about people, places and ecologies of the past.
