Nicolaysen Art Museum and Discovery Center

Casper's Discovery Center Gets A New Look

The Discovery Center, located within the Casper's Nicolaysen Art Museum, inspires fun and exploration for all ages. Through their hands-on activity stations, classes and special events, the center combines science and art with fun and learning.

In October 2009, the Discovery Center reopened with a fresh new look, including new paint and flooring, as well as five new discovery education/activity stations: Erosion Explosion, Spinning Your Wheels, Build It, Renewable Usable, and City Escape. These stations were sponsored by GSG Architecture.

"The center's programs bring art and science to life in a way specially formatted for children, utilizing the senses and stimulating the mind to work in new and interesting ways."

The Nicolaysen Art Museum's reputation for education and prestige in contemporary art is known throughout the region, and its family activities add to the variety of programs they offer the community of Casper and state of Wyoming. Bring the family the next time you are in Casper!
