Kick off the 2006-07 School Year with Discovery!

Start off the 2006-07 School Year with Discovery at Discovery World!

Discoveryworld_1(check back for updates as more details unfold!)

This will be the first major statewide Wisconsin DEN event and a FUN and very energizing one! 

You will also learn more about this incredible new science, technology and innovation hands-on exhibit museum!   For more information on family fun activities to do in Milwaukee see
http://www.visitmilwaukee.org/!   

For a reasonably priced hotel, check out the Comfort Inn Downtown which has rooms but they do book fast! (I have tried several options already and prices can be very high) This Comfort Inn is reasonably priced, but you will need to book early!
