Discovery Den

The Discovery Den's  fun atmosphere invites parents to explore and learn with their child. With interactive exhibits, children and parents can play while learning about nature’s wonders.

The Discovery Den's  three main educational exhibits consist of the Moon Jellyfish Life Cycle viewing area, an interactive Butterfly Life Cycle exhibit, and our newest exhibit called the South Dakota Seas. This display features an 18-foot, life-size replica of an extinct Giant Colossal Sea Turtle. 

The Discovery Den is sponsored by First Bank and Trust, Kate Florio and Larry Burris, Family & Friends of Violet Hansen, and The David B. Jones Foundation.
