Discovery Center

The Discovery Center is an interactive imaginary experience for children in 18th-century town vignettes. Daily activities are offered such as craft kits with a project, instructions, and materials.

The Discovery Park, featuring a catboat, lighthouse, and bathymetric and topographic Nantucket map are just a few highlight features to enjoy.

We welcome guests to enjoy the Discovery Center where safety protocols will be followed between visitors for everyone’s safety and ease.

Bookings for your own private time to use the space with your family is available upon request. Contact for information.
