Welcome to the

Garden State

Discovery Museum!


We are a celebration of imagination for children ages infant through 10 years old! We are one of south Jersey’s largest attractions for family fun and discovery! Whether your children love to explore science, get down and dirty making arts and crafts, be the hero of their own story, or bear the honor of wearing the chef’s coat for a day, the GSDM is the place to be! We are located just outside of Philadelphia in Cherry Hill, NJ. Come and enjoy over 20 giant kid-powered exhibits and get your hands on the fun!
