Founded by renowned Arkansas author Bernie Babcock in 1927, the Museum of Discovery is the state’s oldest museum. The Museum has been in the River Market entertainment district since 1998. After a $9.2 million complete renovation funded by a grant from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation, the museum reopened in its current format in January 2012. Its mission is to ignite and fuel a passion for science, technology, engineering, arts and math through dynamic and interactive experiences.
