The Museum of Discovery is Little Rock's oldest museum, one of science, history, and technology. We're primarily a hands-on museum for all ages and have a wide variety of exhibits and programs to interest a broad range of visitors. You don't have to be a child, have a child, or even accompany one to have fun while you learn at the Museum of Discovery. MOD develops and rents our own traveling exhibits as well as leasing them for our own institution, so something is always changing at the Museum!
