Hands-on | Kids Out and About Fairfield County, CT

Fairfield County's online guide to everything for kids, teens, & families!

Discovery Museum and Planetarium

Fuel your child's wild curiosity and innate creativity with three floors of hands-on exhibits, shows and activities! Explore the cosmos with daily planetarium shows. Touch a meteorite that fell to Earth 50,000 years ago. Capture the thrill of wild weather, take a tour of exoplanets, or unlock the secrets of the Earth on a giant, 3-D sphere. Discover an “Energy Network” with catapults, solar power and simple machines. Test physics (without even knowing!) using pulley chairs, levers, and giant magnets. Create a masterpiece on a massive Light-Brite station, or challenge yourself in the “DARE to Discover” gallery.
