    The Discovery Museum Science & Space Center is home to the Challenger Learning Center and houses Sacramento’s only public planetarium, an animal discovery room, nature trails, and a wildlife pond.

    The Discovery Museum of Sacramento is a family-focused educational institution dedicated to enriching the lives of local residents and visitors to the Sacramento region by encouraging the exploration of history, science, and space.

    The Discovery Museum Science & Space Center will soon move to River District under its new name, the Powerhouse Science Center. Positioned between Discovery Park and Old Sacramento, along the river walk and just off I-5, a power plant over 100 years old will be reborn into a regional destination and educational landmark for students, teachers, and families.
