Felix Adler Children's Discovery Center

The Children's Discovery Center is a children's museum-- a place for families to play and interact together!  The museum was founded by the family members of Felix Adler, a Clinton, Iowa native who was a famous Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus clown.  Felix always wanted to make people smile.

The Children's Discovery Center is comprised of interactive exhibits that are kid-sized.  Children can pretend to be a train engineer, work in a grocery store, hospital, drive an ambulance, play a few holes of miniature golf and much more.

Weekly educational programs are offered, too!
