Special hours today at the Discovery Museum

RENO, Nev. (KOLO) – Students in the Washoe County School District are having the day off. After Easter Sunday, entertaining children in a fun way is possible! The Discovery Museum has special hours on this professional development day.

The Discovery will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. today. There are eleven permanent exhibitions and new ones to come in the coming months. The hands-on experience offered by Discovery is fun for all ages.

Children can learn about astronomy, human anatomy, green energy, Nevada history, innovation and invention.

Patrick Turner with The Discovery shared what people can experience visiting the museum,

“There’s a phenomenon we like to call ‘discovery paralysis’ – it’s when people come around the corner to the main part of the museum and there, just impressed by the size and level of hands-on experiences who are here and I love it because the kids’ eyes light up,” Turner said.

The next exhibition coming to The Discovery is called Energy/Energía and will open in May.

If you are unable to make it to the museum today, they have online science learning resources.
