Our current Discovery Museum website can connect you with programs and information to plan a visit today, while we work to complete the financing for breaking ground for the new center in the near future.
The Board, staff, and committee volunteers would like to thank the many supporters and companies who have worked tirelessly to help bring the next evolution of the Discovery Museum Science & Space Center to its new home along the River District.
EXPLORE THE NEW VISION
As of the fall of 2014, the project is in its last stages of securing funding through capital campaigns and financing partners. We are almost there! You can learn all about the vision and where the center will be built along the American River by visiting The Vision and Project Profile pages here at this website.
Groundbreaking will kick off an 18-month construction period, with plans to open in 2016. Once completed, Powerhouse will serve an estimated 320,000 visitors annually with a wide variety of exhibits, programs, outreach, and teacher professional growth opportunities.
