Discovery Museum Supporters,

Many of you have read or seen the news that the Discovery Museum is relocating at the end of November with the intent to reopen Spring 2015. I want to assure you that the Museum is actively looking for a new, permanent location In Eureka which we hope to announce soon. In the meantime, we are going to temporarily run limited programming at the Jefferson Center located at 1000 B Street in Eureka. Admission to this site and programs at the Jefferson Center will be free.

Starting December 1 our program schedule will be:

  • New Operating Hours Tuesday-Saturday 1-5pm
  • Playgroup every Tuesday 10-11:30
  • Second Saturday Daddy and Me Playgroup 10-11:30
  • Third Saturday Young Inventors 10:30-Noon

We are also offering Discovery Museum Programming at our Pal Camp site during school holiday breaks December 29-January 2, February 16-20, and April 13-17 for a fee.
