Chartered in 1986 as Children’s Museum Corporation of Rutherford County, the Discovery Center provides hands-on education opportunities for the community. An extensive grassroots campaign orchestrated by young parents led to purchasing a building and creating exhibits and programs. During its first year of operation, over 11,000 visitors came to experience the museum’s exhibits and programs. Now, 30 years after its inception, the Discovery Center serves as a vibrant community and tourism center with over 120,000 children and families exploring the exhibits each year.

The Discovery Center is now open Wednesday – Saturday from 9:30am to 3:30pm (As of April 2021).

The Discovery Center is closed on Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. They close at 2pm on New Year’s Eve. Please check the calendar for special events and programs that may affect operating hours.
