On October 20th, Discovery Museum’s Board of Trustees and Diamond Jubilee Celebration Committee will welcome local leaders, partners, members, and friends to join in our 60th Anniversary Diamond Jubilee.

This event will celebrate the legacy of the local Junior League women who set out a vision in 1958 to found the Museum of Art, Science, and Industry (MASI). In the decades since their visionary beginning, Discovery Museum has changed names, but has maintained a focus on offering unique and dynamic educational opportunities to the region.

The Diamond Jubilee will be an elegant evening of cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, small plates, and a celebration of the STEM learning impact we have accomplished, and all the incredible opportunities ahead. Help us celebrate and REDISCOVER DISCOVERY!
