Childrens Museum

The Magic City Discovery Center will open its doors for a new season on Saturday, Nov. 4. Featured this year will be all your favorites, plus new attractions that are sure to cause your spirit to soar, as children can climb into a real Cub airplane, “fly” in a hot air balloon, or buckle into an ejector seat.
 
“We have really enjoyed our multi-year partnership with the Dakota Territory Air Museum, as we are located inside their museum just north of the airport off Broadway, and are proud this year to be featuring some exhibits from the air museum itself,” said Magic City Discovery Center Board President Mark Lyman. “Thanks to the dedicated board volunteers and hired staff who will keep the children’s museum open during the upcoming winter months. Please come check out what’s new and experience your favorite exhibits from previous seasons as well!”
 
Admission to this season’s Magic City Discovery Center is available at the same, reasonable price of $4/person ($15 maximum per family), with those under 12 months-old getting in free. The Magic City Discovery Center is open Wednesday-Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from Noon to 5 p.m.
 
The Board of Directors for the Magic City Discovery Center announced this summer their intention to build a permanent, standalone museum on Minot Park District property on North Hill. A capital campaign is currently underway to raise the funds necessary to build a two-story facility that will be open year-round. The non-profit organization was the recent recipient of a $1 million grant from the City of Minot Community Development Committee toward this effort. Stay tuned for more details on these plans and how the public can help!
