Discovery World is an extraordinary experience devoted to sharing the wonders of science and igniting a love of endless exploration. We are the spark of joy in a child’s eyes when they make a connection with a living creature.

Here at our world-class facility on Lake Michigan’s shoreline (part of the largest freshwater system in the world!), a new discovery is always just around the corner, from exploring the underwater wonders of the Reiman Aquarium to launching rockets and hopping aboard the “semi-truck” of the Great Lakes.

Welcome to Discovery World, where seeing the world differently is just an “Aha” away.
