Thank You! Your rating has been saved.

The plan was to involve children, parents, families, businesses and the community in the continuing process of education. As a result, the Shenandoah Valley Discovery Museum was founded with the goal to provide the City of Winchester, Frederick County, and the greater Shenandoah Valley area with its first user-friendly, hands-on, interactive center for informal education. Today, the Shenandoah Valley Discovery Museum is the recipient of patrons and many visitors from the region and from other parts of the U.S.

Our mission at the Shenandoah Valley Discovery Museum is to ignite creativity, spark curiosity and inspire learning in visitors of all ages by providing a rich variety of interactive, hands-on exhibits and programs that focus on the sciences and mathematics, the humanities, and the arts.

All exhibits, activities and experiences provided by the Discovery Museum adhere to the following philosophical guidelines:

  • Exhibits, activities and programs are interactive, participatory and informal, and give visitors opportunities to experiment, have fun playing, use their imaginations and share ideas.
  • Visitors are engaged at their own level of expertise and experience.
  • Activities and programs are multi-sensory, authentic, honest, and factual.

The Museum works in a spirit of cooperation and partnership with educational, cultural, governmental and community organizations. These include:

  • Association of Children's Museums
  • Association of Science-Technology Centers
  • Virginia Association of Museums
