The Discovery Room engages children 3-12 years old and their accompanying caregivers in the disciplines of the natural sciences. Visitors can assemble a Prestosuchus, a life-sized cast of a Triassic reptile, uncover fossils in a re-creation of a paleontology field site, pet a Madagascar Hissing Cockroach, see living reptiles, explore the Moon, and many other activities and resources. This will be the place for Kansas City’s curious young scientists. Children must be accompanied by adults and adults must be accompanied by children. The Discovery Room can entertain 80 people at a time and is open from 10:15 am to 5:00 pm Monday-Saturday and 12:15 pm to 5:00 pm on Sundays.
