President Donald Trump announced on Sunday that the White House would be extending its social distancing guidelines through April 30, so Discovery Park of America will be following those guidelines and we’ll be closed at least through the month of April. Like other companies, government entities and organizations, we will be evaluating again as we get closer to that date.
The mission of Discovery Park of America is to inspire children and adults to See Beyond. Located in the beautiful Reelfoot Lake region of Northwest Tennessee, Discovery Park of America offers visitors of all ages a world-class, state-of-the-art experience unlike anything else in the world. From the 100,000-square-foot museum to the extensively-landscaped 50-acre heritage park, there is literally something for every member of the family to discover at Discovery Park of America.
