Overview

The DISCOVERY Children's Museum is a 58,000 square foot facility located in Las Vegas, Nevada. Formerly known as LIED Discovery Children's Museum. This three-story children's museum is located adjacent to The Smith Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Las Vegas.
The mission of the DISCOVERY Children's Museum is to provide a vibrant and engaging experience, through exhibits and programs, where children from economically and culturally diverse backgrounds participate in playful learning experiences that ignite a love of lifelong learning.
The Projects Group was engaged by The Smith Center for the Performing Arts to oversee the design and construction of the museum as they were a tenant on their campus.
