Discovery World is an extraordinary experience devoted to sharing the wonders of science and igniting a love of endless exploration.

We are the spark of joy in a child’s eyes when they make a connection with a living creature. We are the sudden and satisfying “Aha!” when you discover something you didn’t even know you were looking for. We are the beginning of your lifelong learning adventure.

Here at our world-class facility on Lake Michigan’s shoreline (part of the largest freshwater system in the world!), a new discovery is always just around the corner, from exploring the underwater wonders of the Reiman Aquarium to launching rockets and hopping aboard the“semi-truck” of the Great Lakes.

Bring your whats, whens, and whys; and embark on a path to discovering the answers to all of your curiosities—and unearthing new ones along the way! Our love of science knows no bounds. We empower you to learn virtually anywhere with classroom activities, exciting summer camps, and more. And, as part of the STEM ecosystem, we also touch on disciplines in technology, engineering, and mathematics.
