Since The Discovery opened in September, 2011, the museum's hands-on and interactive exhibits have attracted thousands of children and families. Officially named the Terry Lee Wells Nevada Discovery Museum, it presents the natural and human history of northern Nevada in a way that engages kids and provides a learning experience that is fun at the same time.

The Discovery is located at 490 S. Center Street in Reno, half a block south of Liberty Street. The information phone number is (775) 786-1000. Regular hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.
