About The Discovery
Terry Lee Wells Nevada Discovery Museum

We're incredibly happy to say, "It's about time!"

Seven years in the making, the Terry Lee Wells Nevada Discovery Museum in Reno, Nevada, wouldn't exisit if it weren't for the tireless efforts of our board of directors, volunteers and staff. And, of course, the enormous generosity of the museum's donors and partners.

As northern Nevada continues to grow, the region's cultural and educational offerings must also expand in order to keep young minds thriving. The Discovery is designed not just to meet this need, but to raise the bar for fun, family-based learning throughout our community. To learn more about The Discovery's aspirations for education in the Truckee Meadows and beyond, check out the museum's mission and vision.

The Terry Lee Wells Nevada Discovery Museum (The Discovery) is in no way affiliated with Discovery Communications, LLC.
