The Discovery Museum – Reno, NV
Discovery Museum – Reno NV
Just down the hill in Reno, NV is the newest museum to the area. The Discovery Museum in downtown Reno is an interactive science and natural history museum that celebrates all things Nevada including mining, geology, art, dinosaurs, human history and the environment. The museum has a three story Cloud Climber for all ages, a working model of the Truckee River, an Under the Stars exhibit where kids and adults can pitch a tent and interact with Nevada wildlife, the Da Vinci Corner with hands-on science exhibits and a soft play area for toddlers and babies.
Hot Tip: The Museum has picnic areas where you can bring your own food.
