Discovery Museum Temporarily Closing!

The Discovery Museum will be closing its temporary site at the Jefferson Community Center April 19, 2015 to focus on moving into our new location 612 G Street in Eureka. We are on track to reopen in Late Spring 2015.

This Kramer-owned property is nearly as large as our previous space, and its configuration will allow us to use the space more effectively. It also has much more parking and better visibility from the road. Renovations are now underway, and include new paint, floors, larger classroom and multiple restrooms. This new space will allow us to bring back old favorites along with new exhibits and programs for the children of Humboldt County.

As we look ahead to all the exciting possibilities offered by moving into a new location we want to ask your assistance in helping us reopen in grand style and ask that you consider making a donation of funds, materials, or volunteering to assist with the opening of the new site. Your contribution will make a difference.

Please call or email Amy Whitlatch directly for more information on how you can help 707-443-9694 or
