Welcome to Discovery Place

Discovery Place inspires curiosity and provides STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education to families, children and adults throughout Carolinas through a network of four museums: Discovery Place Science (in uptown Charlotte), Discovery Place Nature (adjacent to Freedom Park) and Discovery Place Kids (with locations in Huntersville and Rockingham).

Celebrating 70 years of inspiring Charlotte

Since 1946, when a young teacher wanted to provide hands-on learning to her students, Discovery Place museums have been offering interactive educational experiences to students and families in the region. Today, through four museums in three cities and community outreach programs throughout the Carolinas, we serve more than 800,000 people a year with high-energy, high-impact science education that is helping to build our region's future.
