The place was established in 1954 as a Jr. Museum of Science and Natural History which was renamed decades later as ‘The Discovery Center’. It offers a great deal of activities to visitors specifically children who get to go on the field trips, science camps and other learning expeditions. The Discovery Center is situated over a land of 5 acres and accommodated with reptile room and other areas inhabiting different animals. The surrounding gardens with its green landscape and a beautiful pond only seems to add to its beauty. Can be visited for a nice family excursion.

Discovery Center Reviews & Ratings
Went today on a school fieldtrip with my daughters school and it was a great experience. At first I thought it looked a bit small, but after we started doing different activities...we needed more time! Nice place to take the kids!
The Discovery Center has always been an experience. It continues to offer amazing and interactive learning displays. It is a great place for classroom field trips as well as an interesting place for anyone wanting to learn more about our area and the people and critters that have been a part of local history. It is the best little local museum around Fresno County! Make a day of it!
Thanks to Yelp I was able to check out the Discovery center. The facility highly depends on volunteers and donations; therefore, do not be disappointed by its appearance. Kids love this place. I took my 5, 6, & 13 year old there and they had a blast! The kids were able to work/play with lab activities, pet a bunny & a snake, be hands on with so many activities, and most importantly, they had fun learning. They would get so into an activity, it was hard to get them to try other activities, and the cycle continued.
It was great everyone was so nice and my grandson had an amazing day. I was hoping to see a bit more there but otherwise it was great.
The Discovery Center is a hidden treasure in the Fresno community. Amazing place. Kids always love it! Great place to visit with the family.
