The Discovery Museum is a non-profit children’s museum that offers interactive exhibits and thematic programs.

Discovery Museum Opening Soon!
The Discovery Museum closed its temporary site at the Jefferson Community Center April 19, 2015 to focus on moving into our new location 612 G Street in Eureka. Our grand opening is scheduled for Saturday, July 11, 2015.
This Kramer-owned property is nearly as large as our previous space, and its configuration will allow us to use the space more effectively. It also has much more parking and better visibility from the road. Renovations are now underway, and include new paint, floors, larger classroom and multiple restrooms. This new space will allow us to bring back old favorites along with new exhibits and programs for the children of Humboldt County.

Volunteer at the Discovery Museum
The Discovery Museum needs your help! We are in the process of moving our exhibits, furniture, and supplies out of storage and into our new location. We are calling on all friends of the Museum to pitch in with the gift of your time to assist in getting our new home set up and ready for action. Help is needed for moving, and for setup. There are many things you can do, even if you can't drive or lift anything heavy. With enough volunteers, we can keep administrative costs down, and open on time. Please consider volunteering during this crucial transition.
