When I moved here I was pleasantly surprised that Pullman has its own children’s science museum: The Palouse Discovery Science Center. It is the type of facility you would think you could not find in a small town. Yet another positive thing about Pullman!
From its website:
“The Palouse Discovery Science Center (PDSC) promotes science, math, and technology literacy through educational programs, exhibits, teaching collections, and activities emphasizing hands-on learning.
Experience a full spectrum of programs that include live science demonstrations, hands-on lessons, films, lectures, classes, field trips, summer camps, laboratory experiences, teacher workshops, science birthdays, and outreach services. The center has a wonderful science store, the Curiosity Shop, filled with cool science toys, party favors, and gifts. Stop by and see for yourself what science is all about.”
The PDSC has age appropriate areas and activities for all ages of young kids.
It is a wonderful place to spend a snowy day (or a hot one) and it is a great place to have a birthday party.
It has family friendly bathrooms, a place to nurse a baby, and a place to have sit and have a snack (but no food available for purchase).
It also has a nice gift shop that carries science-oriented kid’s items.

The PDSC is open Tuesday 10am to 5pm, and Wednesday-Saturday, 10 am to 3 pm.
