The all-ages* Discovery Center engages visitors with Alaska and the Arctic through technology, interactive installations, artwork, marine-life tanks and more. Daily facilitated science labs encourage visitors to ask questions, make predictions and conduct experiments.

Youth ages 6 and older can pick up a Discovery Center Science Passport from staff, document their museum science-related experiences and return it for an invitation to a special family science workshop later in the year.

*Adults age 18 and older must accompany children under age 12.
