Museums in Gulfport
Lynn Meadows Discovery Center
The Lynn Meadows Discovery Center in Gulfport, Mississippi is an interactive activities center that's aimed at entertaining and educating children and families. However, it's no ordinary children's museum...the Lynn Meadows Discovery Center packs a variety of rides and play areas on the inside that's sure to keep your little ones entertained and maybe (just maybe) help them learn a little something in the process. There's a massive climbing structure that reaches all the way to the roof of the museum, art studios, reading areas, and zones that recreate train depots, markets, historic hotels, and the gulf coast where children and play dress up and learn about different subjects. There's good fun to be had outdoors as well. There's a whole complex of interconnected treehouses and a small creek where kids can splash around and try their hand at building log cabins. All in all, it's a great place to take your kids if you're looking for something a bit more thoughtful and inspiring than the movies or the mall. With all the costumes, exhibits, and play areas, they're sure to not want to leave!
