Discovery Place is our hands-on gallery for children through the age of nine. It's the perfect space to inspire the imagination.

Intriguing stations include Laura's Cabin, Oregon Trail, and a Plains Indian tipi. Adult supervision is required. Children can hop aboard a locomotive and drover's car, dressing up like a cowboy, cook on a wood stove, arrange furniture in a doll house,   or put on a puppet play.
