San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum is a nonprofit organization that serves children ages 0-10, and focuses on these critical years of child development while also encouraging families to learn together. Through professionally designed exhibit spaces and programs, children engage a wide range of concepts about science and world cultures. Whether children are playing musical instruments, putting on costumes to perform, discovering history in an archeological dig box, learning about the amazing world of plants and insects, or building structures out of recycled materials, children are able to combine learning with creativity for an educational experience all their own.
When you book your child's birthday party at San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum, proceeds benefit educational programs and exhibits serving San Diego youth.
