Smithsonian Discovery Theater

Discovery Theater--with its signature mix of learning and entertainment--is the perfect place to introduce your youngest kids to live performance, music, and movement. From the Tot Rock concert and dance party series to programs where kids learn languages or hear marvelous puppets tell tales both new and old, grade-schoolers will enjoy the theater's original productions and programs that connect them to new ideas, places, people, and skills. We encourage you to bring your young people to Discovery Theater to experience heritage, science and culture in a memorable way at the Smithsonian.
