Fort Bend Children’s Discovery Center

The Fort Bend Children’s Discovery Center, a branch of the Children’s Museum of Houston, was established in 2016 within the historic Imperial Sugar Company refinery in Fort Bend County. This center excels in kindling a love for learning among children with its interactive, educational exhibits that are infused with the local culture and history.

The center boasts six galleries of hands-on exhibits for children up to 12 years old, including “Kidtropolis, USA,” a role-play mini-city, and “How Does It Work?”, which promotes scientific inquiry. The “Tot*Spot” is designed specifically for toddlers, ensuring engaging learning opportunities for the very young.

The Discovery Center sets itself apart with its intimate, community-centric environment, offering a less congested and more localized experience than its Houston counterpart. Housed in a former sugar refinery, its distinct charm and educational focus make it a compelling visit even for those familiar with the main Houston museum. Will a visit here spark a new curiosity in the young explorers in your life?
