MOD is a 501(c)3 Non-profit Organization dedicated to cultivating curiosity in young minds by providing family friendly learning adventures
Every year, we provide play-based science, engineering, and arts education approximately 50,000 people in our community!
Research finds the type of “guided play” experiences we offer lead to stronger learning and development outcomes than unstructured play and in many cases can lead to stronger academic gains than formal curriculum during early childhood—a critical time to learn!
Every $100 you donate provides a family in-need access to our museum for a WHOLE year

"Fantastic place for kids to burn off energy, play and learn. Different activities will help their motor skills, stimulate their imagination and educate especially with help from an adult. What a deal compared to Bay Area admissions... Please expand to the Bay!"
"Although my grankids live about 15 minutes from the San Jose Discovery Museum, and we go there often, there is something really special about MOD that makes the drive worthwhile. Thank you for all your work that goes into making this such an appropriate, magical, friendly place for families."
We go here frequently and have for years. Staff members are always so wonderful and friendly. There are many fun areas for children, including a baby area (where my now 4 year old started!). A local gem- do support them, because they do it for you!
