Garden State Discovery Museum                          Garden State Discovery Museum

Located in Cherry Hill, NJ, the The Garden State Discovery Museum is a hands-on museum for infants to 10 year olds and their favorite adults.  The Discovery Museum offers fifteen larger-than-life, kid-powered, interactive exhibit areas.  Every exhibit is an invitation to touch, explore, and create.  Filled with nearly a dozen larger than life, permanent exhibits -- enhanced with "Garden State flair" -- the Museum offers hours of fun and countless experiences. Visitors can get inside of a gigantic bubble, scale a rock climbing wall, hop aboard a ship, create front-page newspaper stories, be reporter or anchor-person at a television station, "shop" at the farm stand then whip up a pretend exotic meal at the Discovery Diner, dabble in art, create some music, put on a show and build a two-story house -- all under one roof! Whether they are building and rearranging the two-story house in Under Construction or caring for pets in Vet & Pet, they are also building self-esteem, self-confidence and are learning to work cooperatively.
