The Discovery Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia is set to re-open on February 12, 2017 in its newly constructed $20-million facility on the Halifax waterfront. After spending 25 years on Barrington Street, the old centre was aimed primarily at young children and their families. President and CEO, Dov Berconvi says the new Discovery Centre will attract people of all ages offering unique features such as travelling exhibits, interactive astronomy shows and invention workshops.
The three-storey building will offer a one of a kind, hands-on experience. The centre’s main floor is where its travelling exhibitions will be set up for three-to four-month stopovers. On the second floor, visitors will get the chance to see a life-sized yellow Piper J-3 Cub, a lightweight aircraft first produced in 1938. The aircraft is part of three themed galleries, flight, health and energy. The top level of the centre will be a kids-only section with glass windows overlooking the Halifax Seaport Farmers’ Market and the Halifax harbour. This section will contain a farm, supermarket and doctor’s office, designed to teach children about how their cities function.
