More About Us

For nearly 30 years, the Children’s Discovery Museum has invited children and families to play, learn, and grow in Augusta, Maine. Our museum has encouraged tens of thousands of children to explore their world, make friends, gain confidence, and problem solve.

But a few years ago, we realized we needed to grow our capacity to better serve the region. While the pandemic shut down our Augusta location, we seized on the opportunity to find a bigger better space, and in 2020 purchased a historic building in Waterville, with the help of USDA funds, and moved into our new home at 7 Eustis Parkway. 

As we continue fundraising, renovating our building, and fabricating our professionally designed brand-new exhibits hall, we continue to build strong community partners and offer some fun programming and creative events around the community and in our new space.
