San Diego Children's Discovery Museum's mission is to spark a love of learning so all children can discover their wildest dreams. Today we remain the only hands-on educational children's museum in North San Diego County, serving children ages 0-10 with interactive exhibits and programs focused on STREAM education.
Interactive experiences are a crucial element of learning. Our Museum features four focused program areas: Experimentation (science, math, engineering), Exploration (world cultures, history), Imagination (theater arts, visual arts, music), and Discovery (outdoor space featuring gardens, environmental science, world cultures, arts). All exhibits and programs are designed with the help of museum experts, educators, and childhood development specialists, ensuring a wide range of skill development and concepts that align with California’s Common Core curriculum for science, math, English language arts, visual, and performing arts, and social science. Time spent at the Museum develops crucial life skills like curiosity, confidence, and creativity, which are all qualities that strengthen children’s potential to excel in school, careers, communities, and as parents. We challenge children’s imagination and curiosity through interactive exhibits and hands-on programming. Through play, children have the opportunity for creative problem solving, critical thinking, and hands-on exploration and experimentation in a safe environment where there are no right or wrong answers.
