Welcome to Discovery Depot

The Discovery Depot museum provides an engaging atmosphere in which children and families explore, learn, and have fun together. Since 1999, we have sought to fulfill our mission, "Inspiring Wonder and Excitement for Learning" through diverse programs, exhibits, and community partnerships. We promote literacy, science, engineering, technology, mathematics, fine arts, and cultural education by engaging families through hands-on learning!

In addition to providing exhibits and programs, we lease classroom space for private events, including children’s parties, business meetings, and other special events.

The museum is located across the street from the Galesburg Amtrak Station and the Galesburg Railroad Museum.
