Over the last 30 years, the Discovery Centre has evolved from a travelling show from the back of a van to the largest science centre in Atlantic Canada. The New Discovery Centre, now located at 1215 Lower Water Street, has twice as much space with STEAM-themed (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) interactive exhibits and programs. Including four galleries, an open atrium, an Innovation Lab, a Featured Exhibits Gallery and the first Immersive Dome Theatre in the region. The Discovery Centre is a non-profit, registered charitable organization that is passionate about its mission to bring STEAM to life.
Discovery Centre invites you to take an imaginative journey through the depths of a magical underwater world, discover weird and wonderful sea life, learn all about submarines and how they work, and get ready to go on a journey as an aquanaut to explore mysteries with its newest featured exhibit, Voyage to the Deep. Voyage to the Deep immerses visitors in an underwater exploration to learn how submarines work, discover weird and wonderful sea life, and take an imaginative journey as an aquanaut. It is based on French author Jules Verne’s 1870 classic 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, and brings to life the deep-sea adventures of Captain Nemo, his fantastical Nautilus submarine, and the mythical world he inhabited.
There are a lot of activities with their exhibit. You can have your kids explore how submarines work, investigate weird and wonderful sea life, and experience what it’s like to live on board in their fantastical kid-sized submarine. You can also head over the Captain Nemo’s Cabinet of Curiosities and play his bubble pipe organ and then reveal the sunken city of Atlantis. These and more at Discovery Centre, 1215 Lower Water Street, Halifax.
