This educational playground has more than 600 interactive exhibits. Favorites include the world’s largest lightning-bolt generator, a full-scale space capsule, a world population meter and an impressive dinosaur exhibit. The amazing array of exhibits and presentations explores computers and technology, maps and models, the human body and human evolution, and the birds and the bees (both literally and figuratively). The newest addition is the Hall of Human Life, where visitors can witness the hatching of baby chicks.

The Discovery Center is a hands-on play area for kids under the age of eight. The museum also houses the Charles Hayden Planetarium and Mugar Omni Theater .
