Learn, Discover and Play at the Discovery Center of Springfield

Discovery Center of Springfield (DCS) is an interactive, hands-on museum committed to inspiring people of all ages with a life-long love of learning and an appreciation of the world and our place in it.

DCS lets you take your mind on a thrilling exploration of the sciences by providing entertaining, hands-on, brain-turned-on adventures for all ages. You can stroll through the inner workings of a giant eyeball, dig for a dinosaur, become a research scientist and take home your own DNA, learn about other cultures, ride a highwire bike, and so much more. You will have such an awesome, fun time playing with the cool stuff, you will forget you are learning. And there's something new to discover every time you come.

Whether you are looking for an exciting and fun interactive learning experience, a unique location for parties and special events, or a professional setting with the latest technology for your business meeting, DCS has something to offer.
