Science and Fun for Visitors 6 and younger!
In Tot Spot, little visitors can explore, create, and discover the world of science while doing what they do best—playing. Children ages 6 and younger and their grown-ups can Make It Go with the train, coal car, and depot; Make It Flow (and squirt and bubble) in the huge water play area; and Make it Blow through giant tubes filled with sparkles, balls, and fluff.
Junior engineers can move materials with a kid-powered crane, create their own gravity ball maze, and build structures of all sizes.
You can step through the porch of Ginny’s House for family role-play fun that even includes working on the car in the attached garage!
Baby Spot, for our littlest learners, lets your toddler or infant engage his/her senses with specially designed toys.
Children take the lead in creating, imagining and learning through different venues that rotate through the Tot Spot role-playing area during the year. Discovery Center Museum asks all young visitors to Tot Spot be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
