Agency Overview

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

We continue to grow and constantly add innovative, educational, hands-on exhibits for our visitors and classes for groups of students. We offer summer workshops for individual children, outreach programming, and distance learning through videoconferencing technology.

DCS currently houses 50,000 square feet of interactive exhibit space. Exhibits and programs currently in place interweave a broad array of:

  • Hard sciences
  • Technology
  • Math
  • Health
  • Environment
  • Culture
  • Art
  • Communications

Discovery Center of Springfield is the only educational resource center of its kind serving the schools and families of this region. Similarly, DCS is the only youth activity center in Southern Missouri that offers and utilizes such a wide range of exhibits, hands-on activities, special events, and programs that explore a broad spectrum of educational goals.
