Due to COVID-19, The Discovery Center is closed until further notice. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as they arise. Please know that the well-being of our visitors, staff, volunteers, and our community is our top priority.
The Discovery Center of the Southern Tier is committed to creating an environment that fosters the intellectual, physical and emotional well-being of children through education, participatory exhibits and programs.
Welcome to The Discovery Center!
Play and learning flow together here in unique hands-on settings that are designed with imagination, research and attention to the needs and spirit of today’s learners. Ours is a unique space which is designed carefully to reflect our concern that a balance of art, history, science and the humanities connect to provide the rudiments of a well-rounded individual. Our exhibits, our themes and our ambiance are community specific, yet we leave a wide margin for global discovery.
The mission of our programming is to offer children and their families quality, hands-on interactive experiences. The Discovery Center is chartered by the New York State Board of Regents.
