If you're planning to visit here, do a little research first because they usually offer a free day every other month (usually on historical days i.e. MLK day, Chinese New Year, etc.). Discovery Center has a lot to offer, but a lot of the exhibits...More

If you need a creative and enjoyable place to take your kids, this is the place. It's located near the springs where Murfreesboro was founded. This area was the water supply for Murfreesboro for many years early on. Kids love it.
