The Discovery Museums, 177 Main St., is geared toward toddlers and pre-kindergartners. The creative exhibits in The Children's Discovery Museum are based on the theory that early childhood learning happens through play. The Science Discovery Museum, for those in kindergarten through eighth grade, houses three floors of hands-on exhibits that encourage children to experiment, problem solve and explore. Set in a forest, Discovery Woods features a large treehouse exhibit, bridge, nest swing and cargo net.
