Brewers Quay Hope Square Old Harbour

Discovery is an independent, hands-on Science Centre. Originally conceived and operated by Dave and Jenny Piercy, we are now owned by Brewers Quay. Our customers, young and old, spend an hour or more with us, enjoying our interactive exhibits - there are dozens of them! Discovery has over 60 exhibits covering a wide variety of experiences. Most of our visitors spend at least an hour here - some as long as three hours. Parents sometimes enjoy it so much they return on a second day, having left the children somewhere else: just to prove - it's not just for children!
