The Santa Maria Valley Discovery Museum boasts a wide variety of fun and educational exhibits. Walk the plank at the swashbuckling Pirate Ship, blast into cosmic fun on the Mission to Mars climbing wall, set sail for imagination on the U.S.S. Discovery or pop into the giant Bubble Machine. Kids (and adults) will love learning about local birds, fish, plants and animals, and after a fun adventure through the museum. At the very least, you'll finally have answers to such important questions as "Why are bubbles round?" and "What's bird poop made from?"
