About Boonshoft Museum of Discovery

Imagine a place where extraordinary special exhibits and interactive experiences spark the imagination! As Dayton's children's museum, science center, natural history museum, planetarium, observatory, and zoo – all under one roof! – the Boonshoft Museum is a one-of-a-kind experience that inspires curiosity and wonder. Geared for learners of all ages, the Museum brings history to life with artifacts and specimens from our Collection, and visitors can come face-to-face with the furry, prickly and scaly residents of the Discovery Zoo. From hands-on labs and fiery demonstrations in Science Central to dynamic images of Earth and space in Science On a Sphere, the Hall of the Universe, and the Caryl D. Philips Space Theater, the Museum brings critical STEM family learning and fun to nearly 200,000 visitors each year.
