Welcome to the Discovery Den
A fun atmosphere designed for exploration and learning is what you’ll find at the Discovery Den, where parents and children examine nature’s wonders through interactive exhibits, activities and educational displays.
The Discovery Den's three main attractions are the Moon Jellyfish Life Cycle viewing area, the interactive Butterfly Life Cycle, and our newest exhibit, South Dakota Seas. This display also features an 18-foot, life-size Archelon replica, an extinct species of giant sea turtle discovered in South Dakota.
The Discovery Den is sponsored by First Bank and Trust, Kate Florio and Larry Burris, Family & Friends of Violet Hansen and The David B. Jones Foundation.
