Discovery Overload: A term coined by the staff of the museum to describe the reaction that occurs when a child finally reaches the top of the ramp to enter The Discovery Museum and first lays eyes on the all the attractions. The Cloud Climber is the first challenge to be witnessed, and conquered.
The buzz around town is that there will be an opportunity for me to go The Discovery Museum, without any children, and act like a kid. Even better news, everyone else 21 and over is invited. Come help The Discovery raise funds for their wonderful museum with a night of science and cocktails. I’m in.

A STORY FOR YOU: A mother and her daughter were skipping away as they were leaving The Discovery, an employee asked the mother, “Wow, most kids are battling to stay here- your daughter is so cooperative!” The mother replied, “I had to tell her that we are going home to eat whipped cream! “
