490 S Center St, Reno
Although it is trying to call attention to the fact that it’s more than just a children’s museum, the Discovery is clearly still best known for what it can show and teach kids. Open in 2011, the very-hands-on exhibits on science, technology, art, engineering and math are endlessly entertaining for all ages. Along with the permanent exhibits are other national ones that offer an up-close look at science, including recent exhibitions on monster fish and dinosaurs. The Discovery has been a great example of Reno’s downtown renaissance.490 S. Center St.
