Mission Statement

Inspiring curiosity, creativity and the joy of lifelong learning.


As northern Nevada continues to grow, the region's cultural and educational offerings must also expand in order to keep young minds thriving. The Nevada Discovery Museum is designed not just to meet this need, but to raise the bar for fun, family-based learning throughout our community. The museum also aims to provoke new aspirations and collaborations among children, parents and educators. The Nevada Discovery Museum is a place of open eyes, open minds and open horizons. A place where tomorrow's dreams win their wings.

Located in the former Reno City Hall, the Nevada Discovery Museum will be one of the centerpieces of Reno's downtown renaissance.

Would you recommend Terry Lee Wells Nevada Discovery Museum?

by Clare V. from Sacramento, CA (May 31, 2016)
So fun! Had a great time getting kids excited about science. Additionally, the staff members were very welcoming and enthusiastic. The volunteer program is very well structured and convenient-- it's easy to sign up for the shifts you want online, and there is training so that you feel comfortable assisting and working with museum-goers. Couldn't recommend enough!
