Discovery Place

One of the Carolina's most visited attractions and one of the top science museums in the nation, Discovery Place has unveiled a complete transformation of its wondrous halls, filling the museum with all-new interactive exhibitions and amazing activities. From nature to neurons and birds to beakers, science is in your hands at Discovery Place.

Step into a world where science is brought to life featuring extraordinary experiences and explosive experiments during daily programs.  Wander the large, new aquarium, walk the rainforest or have an eye-popping experience in the 3D theatre. The more adventurous can lie on a bed of nails or explore unseen inhabitants of the human body. Or, spend time in one of three hands-on labs where visitors find solutions using real science.

Discovery Place also features the largest movie-going experience in the Carolinas at the IMAX Dome Theatre. Get immersed in the movies while taking a journey to somewhere deep in nature.
