Trek the rainforest. Build a monument. Experience an explosion. See a movie on the largest screen in the Carolinas. Spend a day at Discovery Place and discover the extraordinary.

Spend a day here and we’ll introduce you to a world of wonder, where science amazes, educates and entertains. There’s something for everyone in the family to enjoy, from little ones just starting to explore, to adults who have seen the world. Start by spending some time in Cool Stuff, a unique and eccentric world of physical phenomena. Launch objects into the air, lie on a bed of nails or use a laser to listen to secret messages. Travel from the treetops of the rainforest to the ocean’s floor in World Alive. Go nose-to-tail with sea horses as sharks swim by beautiful coral reefs.Then, bring the youngest visitors to KidScience to touch, test and try science with water tables, wind tunnels, blocks and more.
