Discovery Museum

Marina Center will provide an expanded new venue for Eureka’s Discovery Museum. A program of Camp Fire USA Northern California Council, the Discovery Museum provides a fun and friendly, hands-on, interactive learning environment for children of all ages.

The Discovery Museum began in 1995 as a grassroots organization operating as a “museum without walls.” Embraced by the community, the initiative quickly required a physical space and the Discovery Museum opened in 1995 at the Bayshore Mall, where it operated until moving to its present location in Old Town Eureka in 1999.

Today, the Discovery Museum is a popular local destination for families and kids who come to see the museum’s interactive and creative exhibits. These exhibits highlight everything from a child-size grocery store to an "out-of-this world," three-dimensional planetarium experience.

Partnerships with Humboldt State University and College of The Redwoods, Eureka City Schools and other organizations help the non-profit Discovery Museum provide a stimulating and engaging educational environment for North Coast residents and tourists alike. The Museum strives to be all-inclusive and actively seeks to provide affordable programs and scholarship opportunities for low-income and disadvantaged children. Individual, family and business memberships are available.

The Discovery Museum’s evolution will continue in a larger, state-of-the-art space at the Marina Center, where it will be able to introduce exciting new exhibits and programs for the local community.
