Story Worlds

At the heart of Discover are two floors of magical Story Worlds and a Story Garden - immersive, exploratory play spaces where children and their imaginations can roam. Creep through caves, find hidden ships and perform in a puppet castle. Jump over alligators and captain spaceships. Visit a tree house with chicken legs and discover mysterious hidden sculptures.
